Abstract (in english)
   During the 1997 flood of the Morava River abundant sediment was redistributed as a layer several centimeters thick over an extensive area. Along with the sediment organic pollutants, trace elements and radioactive material were redistributed.Although at first, contamination level was feared to be high, it later turned out in most areas to be less critical. There were several local exceptions, however, where Ministry of Environment critical levels were exceeded. In this study 111 near surface soil samples and 30 core samples of flood deposits were taken. Tests were run on 15 of trace elements, 34 of organic toxins and 4 of radioactivite elements. The analytical results were treated statistical. Background concentrations were exeeded for following substances: total petroleum hydrocarbons, PAH, PCB, DDT, DDE, trace elements Cd, Co, Cr, Ni, Pb, Zn, Sb, Hg, Ba and radioactive elements Cs137, U(Ra).
