More complicated factor’s affection to each other affecting to an area’s surface evolution, and to the topographic features. (for example: geological conditions: petrology construction, history of development, techtonic conditions, age, and others.; surface shaping processes: erosion, crumbling, smalling, and others.). The micro region of Sárospatak’s shows a very changing image, but its unequal topographic features can separate to three class:

  • plains – 92-150 m
  • foot of the mountain-hills – 150-350 m
  • mountains – 350-745 m

Classes of the topographic features are showed by the IV.map..

  1. FEATURING THE MOUNTAIN’S TOPOGRAPHIC FEATURES
    Between the 350-745 meter high part of the mountain of medium height’s average relative relief is 180 m/km2. The highest values as the absolute high is revealing the highest northwestern part. The spine type mountain of medium height is hardly separated on the horizon, its average water flow density is 3,4 km/km2, on the surface’s 2/3 part is between 2-4 km/km2. From the big shapes the vulcano cone and the remains of the laccolith are featured. The surface is rich in periglacial shapes.

  2. FEATURING THE FOOT OF THE MOUNTAIN’S TOPOGRAPHIC FEATURES
    Between the 150-350 meter high, more likely western hills, can explain as the Zemplén-mountains foot surface. The surface is average which can be rated as highed hill’s back and fall, lowed hill’s back and fall and spined type of low mountain of medium height’s orographic topographic type. The average relative relief is 120 m/km2, the northern – deeply protruding to the mountain’s “V” shaped brook valley – part is 230 m/km2, on the southern part is 50 m/km2. Horizontally the Northern part is hardly jointed, here can be measurable a 3-4 km/km2 valley denseness value against to the average 2 km/km. The pliocene surface of mountains foot shaped by the pleistocene crioplanical processes. To the middle and the northern higher levels are typical periglagical shapes. On the northern part of the area the ground erosion has medium intensity.

  3. FEATURING THE PLAINS’ TOPOGRAPHIC FEATURES
    Between the 92-150 meter highed area is a perfect floodplain leveled area. The surface’s average relative relief is 4 m/km2; the mountains foot parts connected areas has more intensive, next to the Bodrog and Tisza it has less various surface. In the Bodrog alley the horizontal parts are over the average because of the Tisza’s and the Bodrog’s river bed changing (wasted river beds, mortlakes). From the surface shapes the most exciting are the hardly jointed part of protruding into Hegyalja, the Bodrog alley, and taking place int he Kenézlő–Viss–Zalkod. The swamp controlled area has several on the middle of the river’s back shaped, the Tisza and Bodrog’s erosion destroyed area has flecked by the 10-15 meter high quicksand island. On the shores of Tisza and Bodrog, the alluvial plain is jointed by wasted mortlakes and river beds.
