channel processes

The influence of geological structures on the character of the channels of right-bank tributaries of the Dniester river

The proposed study aims to determine the influence of geological structures on the features of the channels of the largest right-bank tributaries of the Dniester River - the Stryi, Bystrytsia, and Limnytsia rivers. For this purpose, we conducted zoning of the river based on morphometric and hydrological characteristics. Three parts were identified: mountainous, pre-mountainous area and plain area, which differ significantly in channel properties, their changes over time, and deformation processes. Objective.

Using images obtained from UAVs to construct a DEM of riverbed territories with complex hydromorphological characteristics

The aim of the work is to investigate the accuracy of the DEM of nearshore areas using UAV material. One of the important issues in hydrological flood modelling is the high accuracy of the DEM. In the case of a complex relief type, which is associated with meandering riverbeds, it is proposed to use UAV surveys to create a DEM.


Channel processes are the most dynamic exogenous geomorphological processes. This scientific field of research has many complex scientific problems and has long been developed in Ukraine and around the world in various fields of science, namely geomorphology, hydrology and technical sciences. The channel process is in constant and close connection with the geological, geomorphological, climatic and soil conditions of the territory.

Study of horizontal displacements of the channel of Dniester river using remote sensing data and GIS-technologies

Aim. The aim of the work is to research the method of studying horizontal displacements in the channel of the Dniester river from town Galich to town Zalishchiki using topographic maps of different periods, special maps, and space images. Such an integrated approach of using various data for receiving input information about the river bed together with processing in ArcGIS made it possible to monitor the displacements of the channel, and to determine displacement values over a significant period of time.
