ESTIMATION OF THE RETENTION CAPACITY OF SOIL AND ROCK–WASTE ON THE PLATEAU SLOPE
The main aim of this paper is assessment of retention possibility in slope covers on flysch foothill slope. They were taken into consideration results of investigation of particular elements of water circulation on slope: overland flow, throughflow, water stage in piezometers to depth: 20, 50, 100, 150, 200 cm. They are define relationship between a water stage and overland flow or throughflow intensity. The author also defined water stages frequency in piezometer holes, which is dependent on the granulometric composition of soil. The author carried out the field experiment, whose aim was definition of water transmission speed from top to valley bottom.
