The results of the study of hazardous processess in the Chorna Tysa basin by the landscape indication method are given. The method of landscape indication based on the use of geomorphological, geobotanical, hydrological and other indicators is significant for identifying potential centers of dangerous slope processes, particular landslides, taluses and avalanches. The relief is considered as the main “landscape indicator” reflecting the combined effect of endogenous (tectonic, geological) and exogenous (space, climatic, hydrological, man-made) factors. The main factors causing avalanches are natural – high-altitude, highly dismembered relief with steep slopes of various exposures, large amounts of snow accumulated in the fractured parts of the slopes and vegetation features. Man-made factors, in particular, deforestation on the slopes also have a great influence on landslides and taluses. The scheme of localization of dangerous sloping processes in the upper reaches of the Chorna Tysa basin, and the routes for their study are given.
