Within the fund program of the State Forest Service (LCR, s.p.) in Czech Republic, project about bedload sediment regime of Czech Republic torrent streams was received. Main members of Czech-Rivers research group, namely assistant professors RNDr. Václav Škarpich, Ph.D., RNDr. Tomáš Galia, Ph.D. and Associate Professor RNDr. Jan Hradecký, Ph.D. from Department of Physical Geography and Geoecology are participating in project which will be realized within cooperation of Masaryk University in Brno and the lead partner Envicons, s.r.o. from Pardubice (Czech Republic).
The main aim of the project will be focused to bedload sediment regime quantification of torrent streams in the area of the Moravskoslezské Beskydy Mts., Hrubý Jeseník Mts., Orlické hory Mts., České středohoří Mts., etc. Target of activity is to bring the outputs to management practice of bedload sediment material in torrential streams managed by the State Forest Service in Czech Republic.
