Geomorphological analysis of fluvial forms has revealed several phases of erosion and accumulation among the remnants of regional planation surface and recent floodplain in the deep Dyje valley. The more distinct remnants of the Lower Pleistocene terraces were indicated by study of topographic maps (scale 1:10,000), while the less preserved accumulations were discovered only by detailed field research over the last three years. Detailed study of a short floodplain segment of the Dyje River has also been carried out.
