Slope movements in the flysch Carpathians of eastern Moravia Vsetin District, triggered by extreme rainfalls in 1997

Slope movements in the flysch Carpathians of eastern Moravia Vsetin District, triggered by extreme rainfalls in 1997

Moravian Geographical Reports 6(1): 43-52

The paper deals with slope movements triggered by extreme rainfalls in July 1997. Authors concentrated on slope failures in the district of Vsetin, eastern Moravia, in area belonging to the System of Outer Western Carpathians. The Vsetin district was one of most affected by the slope movements with so far records on more than 250 localities of activated slope failures. As to the character of slope movements, landslides seem prevailing, together with mudflows and rockfalls. The slope failures disturbed the landscape infrastructure to a considerable extent and both stabilisation and reclamation of landslide areas are going to be a matter of long-term solutions. The hitherto investigations brought new knowledge which also made it possible to take a novel view of the studied area geological structure and geomorphological development of slope relief forms.
