Abstract

Results of the investigations of the balance of solids in the catchment area of the Lainbach in the Northhern Limestone Forealps are presented and compared with the results of comparative measurements in the catchment area of the Kesselbach (Vorkarwendel). The proportion of erosion by runoff on slopes of the sediment yields of the catchment areas during individual precipitation events varies widely. In the annual balance of solids, erosion in channels and sediment yields predominate over erosion by runoff on slopes in both catchment areas. Thus measurements prove the formation of V-shaped valleys up to the present day
