Reflection of the glacial-intergalcial cycle in the evolution of the Vistula River basin, Poland

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



A variety of factors include climatically induced changes of the river runoff and sediment load, glacial advances and rapid variations of the base level, as well as the influence of the tectonic factor. The first-order climatic cycles are reflected in separate terrace fills. The second-order fluctuations may be represented by separate cuts and fills, by the change of the facies or in the granulometric composition. The analysis of the changes in the longitudinal profile helped to discover different valley reaches and general tendency to smooth the long profile during the Quaternary. - (DG)
