Abstract


The purpose of this study is to analyze, using GIS, the relationship between hydrodynamic characteristics during high intensity flood periods and geomorphological controls on channel and valley morphology of the Carpathian and Subcarpathian Prahova River.

In order to acquire Prahova River’s topographic information, on its channel and valley from Predeal (upstream) to Campina (downstream), in August 2006 a GIS ground-based survey was used. The survey consisted of 192 topo-bathymetrical cross-section profiles over 55 Km distance (river length) covering the Carpathian and Subcarpathian reaches.
