Longitudinal and cross sections of selected valleys were also analyzed. Channels were mapped using a special manual and a set of templates (Kamykowska et al. 1999). Survey maps of the channels and the sets of landforms identified in each of them were used to break down the channels into basic reaches, which were then described.
