Abstract

In the second half of the 19th century, flood control measures radically changed the Hungarian river network. Channel length, slope and planform were all directly affected by regulation and also by subsequent river adjustment. In this paper selected sections of 2 rivers are studied. Sinuosity and shifts and dimension changes of meanders are used to detect river mechanism countering or complying with the impact of human intervention
