Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Analysis of a 2-3 m thick vertical sequence of fine-grained overbank alluvial sediments on the foreland of the Eastern Sudety Mountains reveals that these sediments resulted from human land use changes. Since at least Early Medieval times, and possibly even earlier, the Glubczyce Plateau has been a deforested region. Despite the mountainous character of the headwater area of rivers in the Eastern Sudety foreland, sediment transfer from sub-mountainous loess-covered uplands, induced by human activity, is clearly marked in the granulometric and geochemical properties of the vertical sequence of overbank deposits
