Reflection of climatic changes during interpleniglacial in the geoecosystems of South-Eastern Poland

contemporaneous central Asian mountains with the upper tree line controlled by temperature (July temp. +10°C), and the lower tree-line controlled by humidity ( Grichuk, 1973 ; Bottema, 1979 ; Starkel, 1977 ; Kowalkowski and Starkel, 1984 ). For most of the last cold stage Central Europe was occupied by discontinuous permafrost, so a summer active layer was dependent on local conditions, like a type of soil, exposition of slopes and mezorelief. The authors decided to review the earlier studies, including the sites surveyed in the years 1960–1980. The interpretation of the

Low to middle Pleistocene paleoclimatic record from the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland (Poland) based on isotopic and calcite fabrics analyses

studied chronology. High resolution and precise chronologies are relatively easy to complete for young speleothems. In speleothem science, the 230 Th/U method is usually the best way to obtain precise chronologies. For older periods ( i . e ., older than 0.5 Ma), dating becomes a serious challenge. Theoretically, older material could be dated with the U-Pb method. However, this method requires relatively high uranium content (minimum of a few ppm), whereas typical speleothems from Poland (and all of Central Europe) have uranium concentrations below 0.1 ppm.

Integration of numerical models and geoinformatic techniques in the delimitation of a protection zone for the MGB 319 complex multi-aquifer system in southwest Poland


The study area, situated near the city of Wrocław in southwest Poland, is part of the hydrogeological system of the Quaternary/Neogene MGB 319, inclusive of a buried valley of high water potential, named the Bogdaszowice structure. This structure is an alternative source of water supply for the Wrocław city area. Numerical modelling is the most effective tool in establishing a groundwater protection strategy for Major Groundwater Basins (MGBs) in complex aquifer systems. In the present study, the first step was to assess the hydrodynamic conditions of the Radakowice groundwater intake by analyses of head contours, pathlines, average flow times and capture zones of particular wells. Subsequently, these results were used in combination with other data and compiled as GIS layers. The spatial distribution of hydraulic conductivity was based on the lithology of surface sediments. Other data sets such as the thickness of the unsaturated zone, average soil moisture and infiltration rate were taken either directly from the model or were calculated. Based on the input data obtained, vertical flow time calculations for every model cell were made. The final outcome is a map of the protection zone for the aquifer system of the MGB 319.
