Abstract

We propose here a new method of presentation and analysis of the morphometry of river basins developed on the postglacial lowlands. We use advanced conditional simulations based on the new tool designed to fast modeling of autocorrelated error surface and GRASS GIS hydro-geomorphological tools. We present two basins: Łupawa basin which represent very young postglacial area and Prosna basin which represent older surface, developed under preiglacial conditions. Preliminary studies show that morphometric characteristics of those two basins developed over the very similar substratum differ radically due to different developemnet conditions: Łupawa basin inherits fresh nature of postglacial surface while Prosna river has changed radically morphometry of its basin under periglacial condition during Weichselian.
