ABSTRACT

Dealing with the relation of the surface geological structure and floodplains is a very
important scientific topic. The character of the geological structure is significant as
these are areas unsuitable for foundation engineering purposes and it has an influence
on a number of activities implemented there. In the anthropogenically influenced study
area situated in the Karvina Region of the Czech Republic, apart from alluvial
sediments, there are also other sediments, the utilization of which has a number of
practical consequences.
