Extreme water content as a factor of inadequate hydro-ecological safety in the Upper Don Basin


The article considers the high and low water content of rivers, water-erosion processes in the Upper Don basin in terms of undermined hydro-ecological safety. The underlying causes are the character of dangerous hydrologic phenomena and natural and socioeconomic consequences.
