The tectonic control is discernible in the spatial regularities and morphology of valleys in the southern part of the Privolzhskaya Upland. The spatial characteristics include the location, direction and width of valleys. Main morphological indicators of geologic structures are an asymmetry in valleys' crossprofile, alternation of steep and flat sections in the longitudinal profile, terraces distortions, local incisement, channels'alignment of meandering, steppic or swamped valley bottoms. The valleys characteristics most fully reflect regional linear deformations, such as flexures, fault and fold zones and old tectonic scarps. Local anticline are identified with confidence. Large tectonic regions are reflected in the valleys network less distinctly. - (L'A.)
