Abstract:The formation of the runoff of small rivers in different natural zones of the cis-Urals Region is analyzed. Correlation between variations in the flood flow of small rivers and changes in the system of agricultural land use in 1936–1995 in the Southern cis-Urals is shown. The dependence of the balance of melt water on the topography and type of farming lands on the slope is discussed. The effect of fall plowing on the coefficient of snowmelt runoff is assessed.
