Abstract

As an object of research on the course of slope-channel coupling and its impact on relief evolution in mid-altitude mountains I have chosen the catchments and valleys of small streams which are areas with the strongest potential for coupling, high energy and strong dynamics of geomorphic processes. Studies were conducted in two mid-altitude mountain massifs: in the Moravskoslezské Beskydy Mts. (Western Carpathians) and in the Hrubý Jeseník Mts. (Eastern-Sudetes). In both areas, I have selected 10 catchments of small streams. In each of the mountain areas studied at least one catchment was selected to represent the delivery of slope material into the valley floor in each of three zones of the slope-fluvial system. The sites were selected to provide complete a representation of the processes delivering slope material to valley floors in mid-altitude parts of the Western Carpathians and Sudetes as possible. In this chapter, basic information is given both on the environment of the Moravskoslezské Beskydy Mts. and Hrubý Jeseník Mts. and on the location and main features of the catchments analysed in this thesis.
