Renata Dulias:Mining subsidence in Oświęcim Basin (Carpathian Foredeep). Geomorphologia Slovaca et Bohemica, 8, 2008, 2, 7 - 13. 6 figs., 20 refs.
The aim of research presented in the paper was to establish whether it would be possible to conclude
from an analysis of topographic maps at a large scale about relief changes occuring during a short time
period between ten or several dozen years. Contemporary, large relief changes during such a short period
occur among other things in areas of underground mining in Oświęcim Basin, where intensive extraction
of hard coal is carried out by method of roof falling. During several dozen years, mining subsidence
caused such significant changes in the relief, that they have been visible in the counter drawing of
topographic maps dating from different periods. The research carried out proves that making of hypsographic
curves and morphological profiles for areas of mining subsidence has its own grounds because
they, in a measurable way, allow us to prove the human impact on the relief. Key Words: mining subsidence, morphometric analyses, Oświęcim Basin
Agata Buchwał, Joanna Fidelus: The development of erosive and denudational
landforms on footpaths sections in the Babia Góra massif and the Western Tatras Geomorphologia Slovaca et Bohemica, 8, 2008, 2, 14 - 24. 10 figs., 17 refs.
The most intensively used tourist regions within the Polish Carpathians are the Tatra Mountains and the
Babia Góra massif. Tourist traffic within these regions contributes to the initiation and intensification of
various morphogenetic processes. These processes result in numerous polygenetic landforms within
Geomorphological mapping has been used to study the development of erosive and denudational landforms
within the selected footpath sections. 23 km of footpaths in the Western Tatras have been researched
and in the Babia Góra massif 15 km respectively. This paper aims to determine the regularity
in development of erosive and denudational landforms within footpaths below and above the treeline.
The impact of tourist traffic and forestry on development of researched landforms has also been verified.
Because of differentiation of natural conditions within both researched regions, for example lithology
or slope morphology, only effects of erosive and denudational processes have been compared.
The research shows, that because of higher elevation and altitude, higher slope gradient and intensive
water circulation in the Tatra Mountains there are more zones with well-developed erosive and denudational
landforms. These forms are also larger in size than those observed in the Babia Góra massif.Key words: Tatra Mts., Babia Góra, trampling erosion, footpath maintenance, erosive and denudational
Katarína Čengerová, Vladimír Falťan, Milan Lehotský: Morphology of the riverine landscape units and its influence
on riparian vegetation– case study the Revúca River.Geomorphologia Slovaca et Bohemica, 8, 2008, 2, 25 - 37. 11 figs., 3 tabs., 20 refs.
Our paper deals with new approach in the research of riverine landscape units, their morphology and
relationship between fluvial landforms and spatial structure of the riparian vegetation. The aims of our
research are: to describe chosen relevant types of riverine landscape units („transects“) of the model
area - the Revúca river, to characterize relationship between fluvial landforms and spatial structure of
the riparian vegetation and evaluate disturbance level by anthropic impact. We have evaluated stability
of the riparian zone ecosystems by vegetation-ecological analyses. We have identified and characterize
9 riverine landscape units on the basis of riparian geomorphologic and vegetation research. Key words: morphology; riverine landscape units; riparian vegetation; anthropic impact; the Revúca

groundwater level variability. Case study of Ľubietová landslide. Geomorphologia Slovaca et Bohemica, 8, 2008, 2, 38 - 48. 5
figs., 3 tabs., 15 refs.
The paper deals with geomorphologic and hydrogeological investigations of the Ľubietová landslide
with focusing on present landforms and their influence on hill slope-processes, particularly the surface
run-off. The groundwater levels in 7 piezometric drills were measured during one and half year twice
per month (from March 2007 to August 2008). Relief parameters were collected using a contour map
constructed by methods of aerial photogrammetry. The basin boundary, the length of slope upward the
borehole and the catchment area were mainly considered. In order to verify geomorphologic boundaries
of drill catchments acquired by the contour map a detailed geomorphologic mapping in the scale of
1:5 000 was performed.
Analysis of the rainfall being the most important factor affecting the groundwater level in piezometric
drills was performed. Relationship between the groundwater level in the piezometric drill and temperature,
evapotranspiration, effective rainfall and water stage of the Hutná stream is discussed. Standard
GIS tools were used for computing the relief parameters and for constructing the digital elevation
model.Key words: relief; groundwater level; piezometric drill; rainfall; effective rainfall; landslide; digital elevation
Magdalena Ratajczak: Polygenesis of the Brody — Drewitz Rampart (south-western Great Poland) Geomorphologia Slovaca et Bohemica, 8, 2008, 2, 49 - 57. 7 figs., 18 refs.
The Brody-Drewitz Rampart is immense form located in south-west part of Lubsko Highland, where the
Nysa Łużycka river flows into the Odra river. It has not unequivocal distinguished geological structure
This form has not got explicitly identified geological structure, origin nor age.
The hypotheses formulated until now suggest that it is a form of one origin (Bartkowski, 1967) or
a complex one (Krygowski, 1961).
Nowadays research shows that the Brody-Drewitz Rampart is not the form of composite geological
structure. There are sands, gravels and mud glacitectonically disturbed in the east, middle and southwest
part of the form. On the west and north-west part of the form there are sands, gravels, glacial till
and boulders (Blockpackung) – deposits that are typical for sedimentary scarp. Earlier such forms were
described by Kasprzak and Kozarski (1984), Kozarski (1965). Beside that the Brody-Drewitz Rimpart is
one, morphologically consistent form, and geological and sedimentary data indicate at least two paleogeographical
episodes. Key words: end moraine; pushed moraine; glaciotectonic structures; fluvioglacial depositis

2008, 2, 58 - 68. 10 figs., 10 tabs., 11 refs.
The river landscape presents structure of a high degree complexity and consists of hydro-geomorphicsubstrate
base, soil, biota and land cover structures and spatially is differenced into stream channel with
its bed and banks, floodplain with riparian zone and transitional upland fringe. The article deals with the
detailed morphological survey and verification of the river morphology hierarchical classification applied
to the Smrečianka river.Key words: spatial variability; river morphology hierarchical classification; the Smrečianka River
