Nonstationary Flows of Viscous Fluids through Porous Elastic Media. Homogenization Method
Author(s): Bielski W.
Porous media found in the natural environment represent a good example of media with microstructure. Their pores contain different phases of liquids and gases filling them as well as the interfaces between the phases. This issue has been frequently discussed by soil physicists and chemists, chemical and petro engineers, seismologists and other researchers interested in geosciences.
Computational Modeling for the Development of Sustainable Water-Resources Systems in Poland. US-Poland Technology Transfer Program
Editor(s): Altinakar M., Czernuszenko W., Rowiński P., Wang S.
World peace can be better sustained with the accelerated transfer of technology - has been a belief at NATO, US Congress and the National Center for Hydroscience and Engineering (NCCHE) since the mid 1990's. With the support and funding from the US Congress, the NCCHE has been planning to transfer the state-of-the-art research and management tools, computational models, in the areas of water resources and environmental engineering to foreign countries. The objective of the project is to assist the researchers and engineers in those countries who plan tro speed up the development of their water resources and the improvement of their environmental quality, which shall result in the enhancement of their people's living standard, as well as desire for peace.
Study of Geological Structures Containing Well-Conductive Complexes in Poland
Editor(s): Ernst T., Jóźwiak W.
The topics of lectures and discussions covered a wide range of problems related to the two huge electrical conductivity anomalies existing in Poland, unique in the world scale. These are the North-German-Polish anomaly related to the Permian basin and the Carpathian anomaly.
Seismological Bulletin 2004. Polish Broadband Seismic Stations SUW, KWP, WAR, GKP, KSP, OJC, RAC, NIE
Author(s): Jankowska W., Kowalski P., Zych A.
The year 2004 was unique not only because of the occurrence on December 26 of a giant M = 8.8 earthquake near the coast of Sumatra and the following tsunami, causing over 200,000 casualities on the coasts of the Indian Ocean. The year saw also the totally unexpected earthquakes of Kaliningrad Region on September 21, the greatest earthquakes ever noted in Northern Poland and a relatively strong quake in Podhale Region in Southern Poland on November 30, spurting off a long series of aftershocks.
Meteorological Conditions, Hornsund, Spitsbergen 2004/2005
Author(s): Kwaczyński J.
The Polish Polar Station (77°00'N, 15°33'E) of the Institute of Geophysics is located nearby the entrance to the Hornsund fiord (Spitsbergen). It is situated at the northern shore of the fiord, by the Isbjornhamna bay, at a height of about 10 m a.s.l. The fiord's axis extends, roughly speaking, from east to west. The fiord is approximately 30 km long, 5-15 km wide, and penetrates the island upto half of its width.
