The Microscopic Insight into Fracturing of Brittle Materials with the Discrete Element Method
Author(s): Klejment P.
In this work, the analysis of the issue of material fracturing in geophysical applications was undertaken. The Discrete Element Method was used, which is ideally suited for simulating the fracturing process, because it assumes a discrete model of matter (consisting of particles), and also allows to considerate all kinds of issues related to particle rotations and movements.
Results of Geomagnetic Observations: Belsk, Hel, Hornsund, 2018
Author(s): Reda J., Neska M., Wójcik S., Czubak P.
This publication contains basic information on geomagnetic observations carried out in 2018 in three Polish geophysical observatories: Belsk (BEL), Hel (HLP), and Hornsund (HRN). All these observatories belong to the Institute of Geophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences. Observatories Belsk and Hel are located on the territory of Poland, while Hornsund is in Spitsbergen archipelago, under Norwegian administration.In 2018, like in the previous years, the Belsk, Hel, and Hornsund observatories have kept a close collaboration with the world network of geomagnetic observatories INTERMAGNET. The Belsk Observatory joined INTERMAGNET in 1992, Hel in 1999, and Hornsund in 2002.
