Content Description top ↑

The current volume covers problems of subrecent (Holocene) geomorphological processes. These include beach processes, models of the soil moisture budget, shore line dynamics, landslide and rainfalls triggering them, floods drainage basin gradients and their variations. The papers highlight current research in these fields.
