Summary

This course provides information of landscape dynamics, above all fluvial morphological processes. It is focused on geomorphological, exogenous and emerging forms in the landscape. These processes create both surface and subsurface shapes in the processes of erosion, transport and accumulation. Practical regionalization of surface forms in the landscape of CZ and evaluation of the influence of this processes on environment.

Subject syllabus:

1. The relief as the system, geomorphological terminology. 2. Dynamic geomorphology,sculpturing of relief by exogenic process. 3. The basis of relief classification,the relief as form (the slope of field, exposure etc.) 4. Anthropogenic process, terminology 5. Process to accelerate and to slowdown natural, exogenous processes, erosion and accumulation formes 6. Technogenic processes (aggraditional,transport, degradation) 7. Gravitation slope process in antrophogenic relief, erosion and accumulation forms (creep, slide) 8. Fluvial slope process in anthropogenic relief, erosion and accumulation forms (surface water erosion, subsurface water erosion) 9. Eolic process in antrophogenic relief, terminology (erosion and accumulation forms) 10. Weathering process in antrophogenic relief, erosion and accumulation forms (regolith) 11. Physical weathering of minerals and rocks: thermal, physical weathering ,due to crystal growth,swelling, biological weathering 12. Chemical weathering of minerals and rocks: hydrolysis, dissolution of cation exchange, oxidation and reduction 13. Methods of study genesis of anthropogenic relief 14. Geomorhological analysis in model field
