Proposal of universal symbology for detailed fluvial geomorphic mapping
With co-operation with cartographer Jan Miklín , we presented a proposal of universal symbology for geomorphic mapping of wadeable streams. The symbology includes individual channel and floodplain forms as well as selected important fluvial processes (i.e.,...

Geomorphic impact of historical slate mining activity on gravel-bed streams
Our present
research concerned on the geomorphic effect of historical mining of slate slabs
on small stream channels. The mining activity in the Nízký Jeseník Mts (Eastern
Sudetes) took place mainly in 19 th century and almost all mines and
quarries were cl...
