streszczenie: The presented studies show the important role of slope covers, which often differ in their properties from the underlying bedrock, and in the formation of the studied soil profiles and the occurrence of discontinuities within the parent soil material. The observed regularities affect the analysed physical properties, particularly as regards the amount of retention and filtration in the genetic horizons developed within the slope deposits zone (slope cover) and in the zone of rock weathered in situ (residuum). The diverse properties of the two zones determine both moisture and water movement in a soil profile as well as within the soil cover of the whole slope.
