Abstract

The chapter presents results of field and laboratory work conducted in all ten studied catchments divided into three zones of the slope-fluvial system (upper—valley heads, middle and lower—outlet fans) and two study areas (Western Carpathians and Sudetes). In valley heads: debris flows and their impact on fluvial processes were analysed in the catchment of Černý stream (Sudetes), while landsliding, lateral and linear erosion were discussed based on the example of Skalka stream (Western Carpathians). In the middle sections of the catchments I have analysed: landsliding along with channelised debris flows in the valley of the Suchý stream (Western Carpathians) and landsliding coupled with lateral erosion in the valleys of the Keprnícký and Javořický streams (Sudetes). On outlet fans: lateral stream erosion was analysed in the lower sections of valleys of the Sluči, Sokolí and Rudná streams (Sudetes) and the human impact on the transfer of slope material in small catchments was studied in the outlets of the Škorňanský and Hartisov streams (Western Carpathians).
