The evolution of fluvial systems in the Upper Vistulian and Holocene in the territory of Poland

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The location of Poland at the junction of three main tectonic units of Europe created a possibility of great diversity of fluvial systems. Under the climatic fluctuation an important role was played by the drainage towards the north and by blocking of valleys during advances of ice sheets. Detail investigations iniciated in the 1970s provided a background for stratigraphic and paleogeographic reconstructions. The climatic changes are registered in erosional-depositional sequencies especially in extraglacial mountain valleys with changeable flood frequencies and tectonic tendencies. In the middle parts there is a distinct phase of continental climate. In the zone of last glaciation ice marginal streamways were developed in association with superimposed valleys pattern still expanding in Holocene. - (DG)
