Upper Dnieper River Basin

Uper Dnieper River Basin

The Upper Dnieper river basin is located within the Dnieper-Donets Deep (B) (Fig. 1.2). The Dnieper-Donets Deep is divided by the Dnepr River into the smaller right-bank area and the larger left-bank one.
Within the Dnepr basin, the most widespread nature and geological phenomena are landslides, flooding and gully erosion.
From the geomorphology viewpoint, the right-bank part of the Upper Dnieper basin is a denudation-accumulative plain with the altitude ranging from 80-100 m to 250-270 m. Most of the territory is an accumulative plain of the Kiev Polessye (B-1), weakly split by erosion network. The absolute altitude decreases from southwest to northeast – from 200 m down to 120-100 m. The horizontal relief breakdown of the plain varies from 0-1.0 to 2.0 km/km2. The vertical relief breakdown is 0-40 m; the maximum value is 80 m. The territory slope is 0-2° on the average, reaching its maximum value of 16°. On the surface of the plain, in places where loess rocks are spread, saucer-shaped round or oval depressions are met; they are 1-1.5 m deep and have diameters of 15-20 m.
Within the right-bank territory of the Dnieper River, in its upper and middle river flow, the largest waterways are the following rivers: Pripyat, Uzh, Teterev, Zdvizh, Rokach, Bucha, Irpen and their numerous tributaries.
