ABSTRACT
High mountain area as a specific landscape phenomenon of West Carpathians is characteristic of high degree dynamics of georelief with number of prevailing morphological processes. Monitoring of dynamics and changes of relief as a result of geomorphological processes is one of the important part of geomorphological research. We’ve tried to identify contemporary morphodynamic processes in high mountain landscape and consequently assign impacts and effects of processes in alpine and subalpine part of Tatras. Presented results are based on method of repeated observations over extended time period including ground-based photography and acquisition of spatial data with typical frequency of three times a year.
