Slope movements in Slovakia-geographic and geological characteristics Academic Article uri icon


  • Problems caused by slope movements are the most dangerous geodynamics phenomenon in the Slovak Republic. Primarily they destroy the utility values of the exposed areas, ie devastate grassy and forest vegetation, farmland fund and also destroy man-made constructions which are mainly roads, railways, buildings and other important installations constructions. In this paper the slope movement processes in the Slovak Carpathian are described with the relation to geographic and geological subdivision. The regional engineering part and slope movement's parts are quoted from Matula, Pasek (1986) and Nemcok (1982), respectively.
