dc.description.abstractThe present paper reviews selected outcomes of the FLORIST project devoted to flood risk in the region of the northern foothills of the Tatra Mountains in Poland and summarizes novel results. The project encompassed theoretical, field, and modeling work. It was focused around observation-based hydroclimatology; projections for the future; dendrogeomorphology; as well as influence of transport of large wood on fluvial processes. The project improved understanding and interpreting changes in high-flow frequency and magnitude as well as changes in flood risk in the region, related to the presence of large wood in mountain streams. A unique database on past episodes of intense precipitation and flooding was created, harnessing multiple sources. The project showed that the analysis of tree rings and wood logs can offer useful information, complementing and considerably enriching the knowledge of river floods in the region of northern foothills of the Tatra Mountains. Retrospective and scenario-defined modeling of selected past fluvial events in the region was also performed.pl_PL
dc.description.sponsorshipThis paper reports on results of the Polish-Swiss research project FLORIST (Flood risk on the northern foothills of the Tatra Mountains), financed by a grant (PSPB no. 153/2010) from the Swiss Government through the Swiss Contribution to the enlarged European Union. The FLORIST project was carried out from July 2011 to September 2016. The project consortium consisted of the co-ordinator—the Institute for Agricultural and Forest Environment of the Polish Academy of Sciences (Poznań, Poland), as well as the project partner institutions: the University of Berne (Berne, Switzerland), and the University of Silesia (Katowice and Sosnowiec, Poland).pl_PL
