Abstract:

Serbia can be divided into two major geographical units: the Vojvodina Plain and the southern hills and mountains. In the plain fluvial and aeolian processes and landforms on loess are typical, while south of the Sava and Danube rivers, sheet and gully erosion, mass movements, fluvial, karstic, and fluvio-karstic landform evolution are most influential in shaping the present topography. Among the now inactive geomorphic processes tectonic movements, volcanic activity, coastal, glacial, and aeolian evolution have left behind traces still detectable in modern topography. Some examples of rapid topographic change resulting in the most spectacular landforms (landslides, rockfalls, natural bridges, and rock pinnacles) are presented and described in detail from various regions of Serbia.
