Between 25th and 27th of April 2018, we participated on the 18th conference of Czech Association of Geomorphologists. The traditional State of the geomorphologic research in 2018 conference was held in Vílanec in the hearth of the Czech Republic close to the Vysočina Geopark. The Vysočina Geopark is spread out in the landscape of Bohemian-Moravian Highland. We presented our results from ephemeral channels of semi-arid European Mediterranean mountainous landscape in Crete (Greece) and from basins of the Outer Western Carpathians (OWC) in Czech Republic. Dr. Tomáš Galia discussed the importance of large wood in the geomorphic functions of rivers and streams of an ephemeral channel typical of semi-arid European Mediterranean mountainous landscape (Sfakiano Gorge, Crete, Greece). The conference was the first occasion to present the results of research of barchelor student Tereza Matušková from our Department of Physical Geography and Geoecology. She presented results about fine wood mobility in the Sučí Stream from the Ondřejník Massif (Podbeskydská pahorkatina Hilly land, OWC). Dr. Václav Škarpich and Mgr. Tereza Macurová referred about problematic of the possibilities of restoration measures to keep and protect the multiple-thread river pattern in the Skalická Morávka National Nature Monument in OWC.
