Investigations were conducted on a sample of 439 gullies at Hronská pahorkatina Hill Land in the Slovak Republic. The size of gullies was described by their area and perimeter. Morphometric variables such as altitude, slope steepness, maximal catchment area as well as maximal, minimal, mean, horizontal and vertical curvatures were determined at the start and end points of gullies. The analysis of correlation between area and perimeter of gullies has revealed the linear trend between these variables, which is the result of the definition of a shape of a gully. The frequency distribution of morphometric variables in a specific points of land surface has discovered the different behavior of morphometric variables in these points from those on land surface in general.
