Abstract (in english)
   During the flood of 1997 of parts of the Moravia River much sediment was redistributed as a sedimented sheet several centimeters thick an extensive area. Along with this redistribution of sediment there was also a redistribution of organic pollutants, trace elements and radioactive material. Although at first the contamination level was feared to be high, it later turned out in most areas to be less critical. There were several local exceptions, howeover, where Ministry of Environment critical levels were exceeded On the whole, howeover, it appears that pollutats where scattered rather than concentrated. In this study 111 near surface soil samples and 30 core samples of flood deposits were taken. Lab tests were run on 15 of trace elements. 34 of organic toxins and 4 of radioactive elements. The analytical results were treated statisticaly by corelations and evaluation of the spatial distribution trends.
   Background concentrations were exeeded for following substances: TPH, PAHs, PCBs, chrorinated pesticides (DDT, DDE), trace elements (Cd, Co, Cr, Ni, Pb, Zn, Sb, Hg, Ba) and radioactive elements (137Cs, U [Ra])
