Dendrogeomorphic reconstruction of recent flood events in small streams in the Polish Tatra Mountains
Presented by Dr. Ryszard Jerzy KACZKA on 17 May 2013 from 11:10 to 11:30
Type: Oral Presentation
The northern foothills of the Tatra Mountains are among the most densely populated regions in Poland, but also the source area of the large floods of the recent past. In this contribution, we reconstruct a detailed database on the history, magnitude and triggers of floods. The dendrogeomorphic work presented focuses on four streams, in which six sectors have been sampled with more than 1100 increment cores. We present data on the temporal frequency, magnitude and spatial patterns of floods and use the results as input data for the 2-D modelling of hydrologic and hydraulic processes in these catchments.
