Abstract Landslides are important geomorphic agents in various mountainous settings. We document here a case of river piracy from the upper part of the Mala Brodska Valley in the Vsetinske Mts., Czech Republic (Raca Unit of the flysch Magura Group of Nappes, flysch belt of the Outer Western Carpathians) controlled by mass movement processes. Based on the field geological, geomorphological and geophysical data, we found out that the landslide accumulations pushed the more active river of out of… CONTINUE READING
