Abstract

The relationship between slopes and river channels is considered a fundamental aspect of the functioning of geomorphic systems. Numerous studies conducted in mountain areas prove the substantial impact of slope-channel coupling on, e.g. the regime of sediment transport in river channels, channel avulsion, changes in valley cross-sections, changes in the longitudinal profiles of channels, the formation of landslide dams on valley floors, the formation of landslips or landslides under the impact of lateral channel erosion. The most numerous and spectacular examples of coupling come from high mountain areas. Studies on coupling in non-alpine areas are less frequent, especially those conducted in forested mid-mountains of the temperate climatic zone. Still, areas such as the Carpathians and Sudetes are potentially characterised by strong coupling between slope and channel processes. The chapter discusses previous finds on the pattern and results of slope-channel coupling, the current state of the art on the delivery of slope material to valley floors in small mid-mountain catchments in the Carpathians and Sudetes, provides a division of the slope-fluvial system of small mid-mountain catchments (based on coupling pattern: upper-valley heads, middle and lower-outlet fans) and explains the objectives of studies presented in this thesis.
