The relationship between gully erosion and morphometric characteristics within the Larga catchment ( The Tigheci Hills, Republic of Moldova)
Keywords:gully erosion, morphometric characteristics, The Larga catchment, The Tigheci hills
The Larga catchment is located in the southwestern part of the Republic of Moldova. The natural conditions of the catchment are typical for the Tigheci Hills, where deep erosion and gullies are the most characteristic geomorphologic processes. The shape, dimension and spatial differences of gullies are conditioned by lithological characteristics of the morphologic substrate and climatic conditions. The most important feature is represented by the morphometric variables.
