The present issue, with subtitle Monographic Volume, is published in place of the former yearbooks entitled: Atmospheric Ozone, Solar Radiation, Belsk and Results of Atmospheric Electricity and Meteorological Observations, S. Kalinowski Geophysical Observatory at Świder.
Transport Phenomena in Hydraulics
Editor(s): Rowiński P.
This volume concerns various aspects of research that contributes to the knowledge of a large number of engineering processes and also some natural processes that involve the transformation and transport of momentum, matter and energy. Those problems constitute the basis of the studies performed within the Project of the Ministry of Higher Education and Science Grant No. 2 P04D 026 29; it has also been the basic theme of the 27th International School of Hydraulics held from 18th to 21st September 2007 in Hucisko in the Jura Region in Southern Poland. It has been decided to combine the experience gained by the participants of the meeting and the results achieved within the project to provide the reader with a broad overview of the mentioned problems.
Rola Procesów Fizyczno-Chemicznych w Kształtowaniu Struktury Wewnętrznej i Obiegu Masy Lodowców Spitsbergenu. - Role of Physical and Chemical Processes in the Internal Structure Formation and Mass Circulation of Spitsbergen Glaciers
Author(s): Głowacki P.
W globalnym obiegu wody i energii na Ziemi lodowce spełniają rolę, której nie można pominąć. Chociaż powierzchnia zlodzenia na Ziemi wynosi niespełna 16,3 mln km2 (Szumski, Krenke 1965), co stanowi 11% powierzchni lądów naszego globu, to obszary pokryte lodowcami znacząco oddziaływują nie tylko na tereny przyległe, ale również,co należy podkreślić, na klimat w sensie globalnym. Jednocześnie lodowce podlegają wpływom zmieniającego się klimatu.
Seismological Bulletin 2005. 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.The series of local earthquakes that began on November 30, 2004, of localmagnitude M = 4.4, macroseismic intensity Io = 7 in the southern margin of theintramontane Orawa-Nowy Targ Basin, Western Carpathians, have been still recordedin 2005, mainly in January and February (Guterch 2006, 2007). The strongestaftershocks did not exceed macroseismic intensity 5 in the EMS scale.

The majority of seismic events recorded in Poland are caused by mining activityin the Upper Silesian Coal Basin and Lubin Copper Basin. Induced seismicity isobserved less frequently in the Rybnik Coal District and Bełchatów Open-Pit Mining area.The year 2004 was exceptional due to the occurrence of tectonic earthquakes, which even caused a slight, mainly non-structural damage to buildings. On November 30, 2004, an earthquake of local magnitude M = 4.4, macroseismic intensity Io = 7 inthe EMS scale, followed by a long series of aftershocks occurred in the southern margin of the intramontane Orawa-Nowy Targ Basin, Western Carpathians (Guterch 2006). On September 21, 2004, earthquakes of local magnitudes M = 5.0, 5.3, and 4.3 were observed in the Sambia Peninsula, western part of the Kaliningrad enclave, Russia. Two strongest Kaliningrad earthquakes were widely felt in northeastern Poland. The Kaliningrad earthquakes are rare examples of intraplate earthquakes in the low-seismic area.
