Abstract

The geomorphology of the north-eastern escarpment of the Stołowe mountains main plateau is highly diversified. It western section is higher, amphitheatral valley heads are of larger dimensions, and the slopes are steeper and typically concave in longitudinal profile. In the eastern section, the scarp is lower, inclined more gently and lacking in continuous rock cliffs. The strength of sandstone in the western section, determined using a Schmidt hammer, is greater, thereby accounting for the steepness of slopes. Differences in groundwater outflow between adjacent sections of the escarpment result in spatially non-uniform erosion of the scarp itself and its foreland, causing the disappearance of the lowest morphostructural horizon in the northern part of the Polish sector of the Stołowe Mountains, among others. - (BJ)
