Processes and forms in the Argeşel riverbed
Keywords:mountain sector, sub-Carpathian piedmont, reindeer, islets, the meandering coefficient
We may notice that from the source to the confluence with the Râul Târgului, riverbed processes are different. If in the higher section the erosion and transport predominates, in the sub-Carpathian three processes: erosion, transport and accumulation processes succeed as dominant, and in the low piedmont, the accumulation process is winninig in the other two processes’ detimental. These forms are also varied: islands of various sizes, gravels (especially in the lower setion), meanders. The anthropic intervention has changed significantly the appearance of the Argeşel basin in some regions by embankment, straightening the river’s course or removal the ballast from the riverbed.
