The assessment of the suburbanisation degree of Warsaw Functional Area using changes of the land development structure

relevant subject literature, the diversity of urbanisation of suburb areas is widely described, considering demographic, economic, socio-cultural, natural landscape and spatial factors ( Kutkowska et al. 2010 ; Małek 2011 ; Zegar et al. 2016 ; Mikołajczyk & Raszka 2016 ; Harasimowicz 2018 ). The set of variables used in the study of the urbanisation level and dynamics is extensive, considering: – the demographic aspect – these include a natural increase, the migration attractiveness ratio, the percentage of the population of working age, the fertility rate of

Geoarchaeology of the early medieval stronghold surroundings in grzybowo near Września, Greater Poland

character of Struga River, resulting from the dynamics of waters in a flat area of among others Greater Poland, its straight section next to the stronghold raises questions. In addition to other methods, archaeological data was also analysed. The interior of the stronghold is investigated considerably more thoroughly, because archaeological works have been conducted there for more than 20 years. Five boreholes were performed in its area ( Fig. 1 ), aimed at preserving the continuous character of the profiles (to introduce them to the archaeological contour map), and the

Landform recognition in granite mountains in East Asia (Seoraksan, Republic of Korea, and Huangshan and Sanqingshan, China) – a contribution of geomorphology to the UNESCO World Heritage


Applied research in geomorphology includes landform analysis and evaluation from a specific perspective of scientific significance and global relevance. In this paper, landform diversity of Seoraksan, Republic of Korea, a UNESCO World Heritage candidate, is compared with geomorphic characteristics of two World Heritage properties in China, Huangshan and Sanqingshan. Seoraksan represents an almost complete mountain geomorphic system of considerable contemporary dynamics, with outstanding scenery and spectacular landforms such as domes, fins, bedrock channels, waterfalls, and inherited block fields. It is argued that Seoraksan contains outstanding scientific and aesthetic values, not present at the Chinese properties, offering scope for successful nomination.
