Abstract

The paper examines relations among present and past geomorphological processes and the landforms of the Polická vrchovina Highland in the Bohemian Massif. The basin structure of the highland developed during the neotectonic period. The relative uplift of the Highland resulted in the incision of the Metuje River and its tributaries. Unloading of rocks and erosion initiated typical geomorphological processes such as deep-seated creep, cambering, rockfalls, landslides and pseudokarst processes. These processes produced some typical forms controlled by rock properties, jointing, relative differences in height and climatic changes in the Cenozoic
