Bathymetry database of Vistula river mouth

The bathymetry database of the Vistula river mouth was developed using available historical documents for the period 1893-2002 which have been analysed, and processed into digital format. It allows for a thorough analysis and description of morphological changes nearby the Vistula river mouth related to development of the marine alluvial fan and coastal evolution. This issue is of great importance in view of possible floods due to ice blocking, which can be catastrophic for the region, being a lowland, partly with ordinates of 0.5-1.0m below the mean sea level.
