The use of fallout radionuclides in investigations of erosion and sediment delivery in the Polish Flysh Carpathians

, : The use of fallout radionuclides in investigations of erosion and sediment delivery in the Polish Flysh Carpathians. Erosion, debris flow and environment in mountain regions: proceedings of the International Symposium held at Chengdu, China, 5-9 July 1992: 61-76

The Polish Flysh Carpathians are a mountain area where climate, relief and the erodible bedrock combine to produce an active erosional system dominated by fluvial processes. Poor land management has further intensified land erosion. Knowledge of the erosion and sediment delivery dynamics of the area is required to provide a basis for improved land management and for reducing rates of reservoir siltation.
