Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Though the extensive forest clearance and expansion of farmland provided conditions favouring gullying, the triggering mechanism of the disastrous gully erosion were extreme rainfall and snowmelt events with the Little Ice Age (LIA). The comparison of gully formation phases identified in the study area with stages of gullying known from some other central-European countries suggests that gullying was not fully simultaneous across the region. The older phase identified in the Myjava Hill Land, does not have an equivalent in Germany, Poland, or Hungry and to a considerable degree in Czechia either
