Geomorphic monitoring of the Bela River adjustment during the post-river training period

During the hot summer days at the end of July, our team returned to monitor the Bela braidplain territory to check the actual geomorphological changes after river training in 2018.

We also checked advancing backwater channel erosion and gradual channel incision on some river reaches. The magnificient cut-bluff failure near the Vavrišovo settlement remains active due to ongoing river cutting, sharp slope and uncohesive material.

Overall, more than 40 cross-sections were re-measured from upstream to downstream. Several river benches and the abandonend channels were reconnaissanced on the youngest floodplain.
