Geologically controlled waterfall types in the Outer Carpathians

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Waterfalls occurring in the Polish Outer Carpathians have been studied with regard to their geological settings. They are small forms developed on faulted flysch rocks of different resistance on streams characterized by similar features of catchment basins and similar discharges. The classification of these erosional landforms is based on criteria considering the bed sequence, their position relative to the stream flow, and morphological properties. The course of the evolution of particular types of falls depends mainly on the degree of downcutting or headward erosion
