La movilidad tectonica y los procesos geomorfologicos actuales de los subcarpatos de rumania

L. Badea, D. Balteanu

Abstract


The Subcarpathians of Rumania, integrated by folded neogen molasses associated locally to the paleogenic flysch, are affected by possitive tectonic movements of variable intensity which have an obvious injluence in the present geomorphologic processes in a mild-continental climate. The shaping of the slopes is essentially caused by mass movements (landslides, mud flows) together with intense processes of overland flows. Extreme factors (torrential rainfall, earthquakes) play the most important role in the cause and intensity of mass movements. According to the research carried out we can appreciate that the Subcarpathians are among the regions more intensely affected by present geomorphologic processes.
