The Dynamics of the Present Processes within the Sărăţel Catchment Area

Abstract: The Sărăţel catchment displays a territory mostly located in the molasse area of the Buzău Subcarpathians. The physical-geographical characteristics, as well as the social-human impact, created a complete geomorphologic system, in which the present geomorphologic processes register accentuated dynamics. Starting with the year 2002 until 2008 there were monitored areas with significant impact on the landscape, among the most important processes under study being the landslides, the torrents, the ravines and the creep.
