The Krka River and its tributaries make the system of composite valleys in the karst. The composite valley system is the result of lithologic and tectonic relations. The Krka valley is of polygenetic origin. In the canyon sections there are many characteristic slope relief details. On steeper slopes crumbling and collapsing is significant. The debris of surrounding rocks is found in alluvial deposits at the valley widening. In recent times, the regeneration of vegetation is noticeable, which contributes to decreasing intensity of relief shaping by exogenic processes.
