Bibliography of Polish Research in Spitsbergen Archipelago. Part II: 1997-2006
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.
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 Glacier)
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.
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.
Geology, Geophysics, Geothermics and Deep Structure of the West Carpathians and Their Basement
Editor(s): Golonka J., Lewandowski M.
The Carpathians form a great arc of mountains, which stretches more than 1300 km from the Vienna Forest to the Iron Gate on the Danube. On the west the Carpathians are linked with the eastern Alps and on the east pass into the Balkan chain. Traditionally, the Carpathians are subdivided into the West and East Carpathians. The Carpathian Fold Belt system offers an outstanding opportunity to study the dynamics of astenosphere and lithosphere during volcanic arc and related fore- and back-arc basin development in the context of the Alpine orogenesis.
Badania Geofizyczne Środowiska Geologicznego *** Geophysical Research of Geological Environment
Editor(s): Jarzyna J.
Geophysical investigation of the geological environment has been dynamically developing for many years, finding application in solving various problems. A knowledge of the Earth's natural and applied physical fields together with detailed information on properties of rocks enable the geophysical methods to be used to identifying the geological structure of a region as well as prospecting for and recognizing of natural resources. The prospecting geophysics has been the basis for developing new branches of applied geophysics, including the youngest one - the environmental geophysics.
