The AA. studied 8 outcrops of floodplain deposits from 4 localities along a 6 km long part of the current meander belt of the Morava River in Strážnické Pomoraví using geochemical proxy analyses, magnetic susceptibility measurements, 14C dating of wood remnants, and sediment micromorphology. Their geochemical and mineralogical interpretations have further been tested by microstratigraphically studying the optical properties of the fine fraction. The sedimentological analysis, dating, and correlation are used to estimate the mean depositional rate (aggradation plus lateral accretion) over the last millennium. The alluvial deposition in the 20th century was strongly affected by the river regulation
