Abstract:

The Pleistocene soft rock pediments in the Central Moravian Carpathians developeddue to different geomorphic processes. At a locality situated between Nesovice and Brankovicevillages, it was mainly downwearing of the former river terrace and the underlying Lower Miocenestrata due to development of a small flat, at present dry valleys (dells). At Slavkov u Brna(Austerlitz), in turn, the leading process affecting the same sediments as at the previous localityconsisted in the recession of the northern valley side of the Litava River. The main reason for thedevelopment of the lower segment of the pediment at Slavkov u Brna in the contact zone withthe Litava River terrace was surface runoff. The present appearance of the pediments at bothlocalities is an effect of periglacial processes active in the Middle and mainly Late Pleistocene.Thus, the same landforms (pediments) developed in comparable geologic and climate conditionsdue to different processes caused by local geomorphic factors.

Abstract:

The Alpine-Carpathian mountain system enters into the territory of Moravia by the mountain system of the Western Carpathians, i.e. by the zone of the outer Carpathians' depressions, by the zone of the outer Car-pathians and by the inner Carpathian depression of the Dolnomoravsky uval (depression). The depressions of the outer Carpathians form a stripe of a lowland up to hilly relief on few resistant Neogene and Quaternary deposits in front of the outer Carpathians.

The relief of the outer Carpathians is predominantly an erosion-denu-dation one, modelled in a folded flysch series of strata of the compacted marine deposits of Paleogene and Cretaceous age. In the south the Dolno-moravsky uval with the flat relief on Neogene and Quaternary deposits penetrate into the mountain ranges of the outer Carpathians.
