Seismological Bulletin 2006. Local Earthquakes Recorded by Polish Seismological Stations
Author(s): Guterch B.
The majority of seismic events recorded in Poland are caused by mining activity in theUpper Silesian Coal Basin and Lubin Copper Basin. Induced seismicity is observedless frequently in the Rybnik Coal District and Bełchatów Open-Pit Mining area.A tectonic event of magnitude M = 3.2 occurred on June 25, 2006, in WesternCarpathians, about 12 km south of a series of local earthquakes recorded since November30, 2004, until December, 2005, in the south margin of the intramontane Orawa-Nowy Targ Basin (Guterch 2006, 2008).
Bibliography of Polish Research in Spitsbergen Archipelago. Part II: 1997-2006
Editor(s): Giżejewski J.
We are giving to the still growing community of people interested in Spitsbergen and its surroundings a second part of the Bibliography of Polish Research in Spitsbergen Archipelago, covering the years from 1997 to 2006. The aim of the editors was to gather bibliographic information on scientific papers of Polish researchers. In some cases, we took into account foreign authors who closely cooperated with Polish teams in the area of Spitsbergen and around: Greenland, Iceland, Greenland Sea, Barents Sea, and the Russian Arctic. We also included publications of popular-science and informative character, which contribute to the history of research in the period covered by the Bibliography.
Hydraulic Methods for Catastrophes: Foods, Droughts, Environmental Disasters
Editor(s): Rowiński P.
The overall theme of the 28th School of Hydraulics was Hydraulic Methodsfor Catastrophes: Floods, Droughts, Environmental Disasters. Most of the presentationswere therefore devoted to a variety of problems that may contribute to increaseour knowledge in the description or prediction of extreme situations that wedeal with in aquatic environment and where hydraulic methods offer important solutions.All the papers presented during the School (after thorough review procedure)are presented in this volume.
Management of the Storage Reservoir Influencing the Protected Natural Environment - Upper Narew River System Case Study
Editor(s): Napiórkowski J.
One of the aims of the recently introduced Framework Water Directive (Directive 2000/60/WE) is the protection of the natural environment from further degradation. In the case of catchment systems, in which water retention reservoirs play an important role, maintenance of the desirable status of the natural environment under protection requires not only securing higher flows during periods of vegetation growth, but also introducing or keeping the flood impulse.
Numerical Solutions of Two-Dimensional Mass Transport Equation in Flowing Surface Waters
Author(s): Kalinowska M., Rowiński P.
The problem of water quality receives an increasing attention of the public, politicians, decision makers nowadays. People have to answer how to achieve any given level and pattern of water quality in particular watercourses and also how to mitigate the catastrophes that are inseparable elements of civilization. The EU water framework directive, which came into force at the end of 2000 (Directive, 2000), changes the way of monitoring, assessing and managing water in European countries. Three groups of quality elements (biological, hydromorphological and physico-chemical) have been identified in the water framework directive as necessary to classify the ecological status of a particular water body.
