Abstract


DEVELOPMENT OF THE PLEISTOCENE RELIEF IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF THE SANDOMIERZ UPLAND

At the outset of the paper the relief, which bad existed at the pre-Pleistocene period, is discussed in brief. It was stated that at that time the area under study had strongly been uplifted due to the Rhone phase of orogenic movements and deeply out by the ancestral Vistula river and its tributaries. The declines of the pre-Pleistocene valleys were greater than those observed in the present-day valleys.
