Description :
This article compares the observed water level changes during a hydrological year, in the 2 Carpathian reservoirs : the Besko and the Klimkówka. The analyzed reservoirs are located within the same physico-geographical unit – the Low Beskids, but the reservoirs operate on rivers with different hydrological regimes (the Wisłok River and the Ropa River). The performed analysis shows that during the year, the analyzed reservoirs are characterized by different water level dynamics. The water level changes of the reservoirs are determined by the management of the reservoirs, and more importantly, by the inflow volume as well as the supply distribution throughout the year. The analysis uses archive material provided by the Regional Water Management Board in Kraków, Poland. The material pertains to the change of water levels in the Besko and Klimkówka Reservoirs between 1996 and 2011.
