Edition/Format: Chapter Chapter : English
Summary:
This chapter deals with main geomorphological properties of Croatia. The key elements of the geological predispositions are outlined as well as those of geodynamic evolution which, in conjunction with numerous exogenous processes, result in recent landform development. The main points of all important exogenous processes and landforms are presented: coastal, fluvial and fluvio-denudation, slope, aeolian and  Read more...

Abstract:

This chapter deals with main geomorphological properties of Croatia. The key elements of the geological predispositions are outlined as well as those of geodynamic evolution which, in conjunction with numerous exogenous processes, result in recent landform development. The main points of all important exogenous processes and landforms are presented: coastal, fluvial and fluvio-denudation, slope, aeolian and polygenetic. The main attention has been paid to karst and fluviokarst which cover almost 44% of the territory (the submerged karst excluded) therefore numerous recent research topics are outlined such as the development of structural geomorphological methods in karst, the research on coastal karst, glaciokarst, karst denudation measurements and cave microclimate. All this made a good basis for a detailed geomorphological regionalisation given in the chapter as well.
