The impact of land-cover change on the flood-inducing effect in the upper Tisza river basin in eastern Europe was analyzed. It was observed that the forest area decreased by 3-4% on average in the watershed of the Upper-Tisza river outside Hungary. In the eastern/southeastern subcatchments forest area decreased during the last decade by about 10% of the total area. The results suggest that forest area decreased considerably on three eastern/southeastern subcatchments by 900 km 2, 340 km 2, and 225 km 2 on the Romanian Upper-Tisza, the Ukranian Upper-Tisza, and the Ukranian Borsova subcatchments.
