Abstract

the study of natural geographical zoning is a traditional and well-developed field of physical geography. Zonal landscapes of the planet are well-classified and have clear diagnostic features. The situation is extremely different from intrazonal landscapes. The criteria for their differentiation are not so obvious. Despite the objective differences in the landscapes of floodplains of forest and steppe natural zones, the principles of their differentiation and classification have not been developed yet. The most important factor in the functioning of floodplain landscapes is the seasonal dynamics of groundwater. The annual series of observations allows displaying graphically this dynamics in the form of combined transverse profiles of river-floodplains, reflecting the relief, the level of surface waters and the changing position of the upper boundary of groundwaters. Two-dimensional figures on the profiles are subjected to mathematical processing and allow developing mathematical models of annual groundwater dynamics. Such models can serve as a basis to classify the intrazonal landscapes of river-floodplains. The study aims to attempt to estimate objectively the current situation of natural processes in the river-floodplains of the arid zone, basing on precise quantitative characteristic features which are comparable to each other.
