Seismological Bulletin 2005. Local Earthquakes Recorded by Polish Seismological Stations
The majority of seismic events recorded in Poland are caused by mining activity in the Upper 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 local magnitude M = 4.4, macroseismic intensity Io = 7 in the southern margin of the intramontane Orawa-Nowy Targ Basin, Western Carpathians, have been still recorded in 2005, mainly in January and February (Guterch 2006, 2007). The strongest after shocks did not exceed macroseismic intensity 5 in the EMS scale.
XII IAGA Workshop on Geomagnetic Observatory Instruments, Data Acquisition and Processing, Belsk, 19-24 June, 2006
The XII IAGA Workshop was held on June 19-24, 2006, at Belsk Observatory, Poland. IAGA workshops are cyclic events taking place every two years at various magnetic observatories over the world. The decision about the place and date of the Belsk workshop was undertaken during the 23rd IUGG General Assembly in Sapporo in July 2003.
Seismological Bulletin 2004. Local Earthquakes Recorded by Polish Seismological Stations
The majority of seismic events recorded in Poland are caused by mining activity in the Upper Silesian Coal Basin and Lubin Copper Basin. Induced seismicity is observed 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 in the 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.
Seismological Bulletin 2005. Polish Broadband Seismic Stations SUW, KWP, WAR, GKP, KSP, OJC, RAC, NIE
Author(s): Jankowska W., Kowalski P., Zych A.
In 2005, the Polish Seismological Network of the Institute of Geophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences, consisted of eights sites. Of these sites, six were broadband, one long-and-short period, and the short period site at NIE. Following the nine actual activity reports of Polish broadband seismic stations, the report of 2005 covers all stations of the Polish Seismological Network (PLSN) in Poland. During 2005 the stations worked out without problems.
Mining and Environmental Geophysics. Selected and Revised Contributions to the XXX Polish-Czech-Slovakian Symposium held at Lądek Zdrój on June 6-8, 2005
The XXX Polish-Czech-Slovakian Symposium on Mining and Environmental Geophysics was held at Lądek spa (the Sudety Mts., Poland) from 6 to 8 June 2005. It was organized by the Faculty of Earth Sciences, University of Silesia, together with the Institute of Geophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences. The Symposium was attended by 71 participants which presented 44 original papers.
