Břetislav Balatka, Jaroslav Sládek

The authors analyse precipitation and runoff in the drainage basin of the upper and middle Jizera during the great flood, August 8-10, 1978, caused by extraordinary intensive precipitation in the area of the Jizerské hory (Mts.) and the western Krkonoše (Giant Mts.). The flood caused changes in river beds and on flood-plains and much damage for the national economy.
