Abstract

The research focused on the following anthropogenic forms : incisions, embankments, excavations, dumps, and also water reservoirs and water flows. The author focused on three time spans : 1881, 1956 and 1995 because of the availability of cartographic materials. The comparison of the conclusions drawn from these data allowed to determine that the general trend of evolution of this kind of anthropogenic landforms is growing and their internal structure is changing. This research is an example showing how we can describe human impact on relief in a measurable way
