Changes in the middle course of the River Vistula in historical times

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



An attempt is made to reconstruct the sequence of change in part of the Middle Vistula valley between the 11th and late 20th centuries, using historical methods. The most detailed analysis was possible for the changes of the last 250 years. It was possible to document the time of the onset of the change in the character of the river from dominantly meandering to one that was characterised by braiding, suggesting the anthropogenic influences that have modified the natural processes (deformation, changes in rural management, development of flood embankments)
