This paper presents a method of map construction that illustrates potential geomorphological effects of a catastrophic flood occurring on the alluvial plain of a mountain river. It is suggested that the map of geomorphological hazards proposed here become an integral part of a flood-hazard map, and thereby, in accordance with the 2007 Flood Directive of the European Parliament and Council, influence the content of a flood-risk map. Such an interdisciplinary approach to the map preparation procedure would allow for the augmentation of content to include also the processes of erosion and deposition. The analysis of extreme flood frequencies in a mountainous environment sustains the idea that this type of forecast is essential to correctly evaluate the intensity and spatial scale of flood damage within an alluvial plain and along a river channel. – (BJ)
