Introduction Information about temporal changes in land cover is regarded as essential for natural resources management studies, environmental studies and sustainable development ( Foley et al. 2005 ; Chen et al. 2015 ). The effects of land cover changes may be visible in a broad spectrum of environmental systems including atmospheric, hydrologic, geomorphologic, pedologic and ecologic ones ( Olofsson et al. 2013 ; Muñoz-Rojas et al. 2015 ). Land use changes could be caused by alternations in hydrological conditions, but they can also cause changes in the water


The aims of the study were to characterize shoreline soil development and evolution and to determine land use changes (19th to 20th centuries) in the direct catchment of the completely vanished Gardeja lake. The study was based on pedological research and analysis of cartographic materials. The main factor determining the current development of shoreline zone soil cover at the former Gardeja lake was human activity (lake dewatering, further drainage and human-induced erosion). Studied soil profiles were developed from mineral, non-lacustrine materials (upper parts of the slopes) and lacustrine sediments covered with colluvium. The analyzed soil catenas are representative for the undulated young glacial landscape of Northern Poland. The biggest changes of the land use were observed for the class of grasslands that is combined with shrubs (increase of cover area).

In our study, by investigating reambulated soil profiles from the Nagy-Sárrét region in Hungary, we attempt to determine the extent of changes which have occurred due to effects which impacted the landscape in terms of the soil chemistry properties of soil profiles exposed during the Kreybig soil survey more than 70 years ago. Based on the results, in the areas used as grassland, we observed a decrease in pH and an increase in the humus content of the topsoil. The increased CaCO3 following the chemical improvement of the soil which was used as cropland is still characteristic of the area. During the past decades, the investigated soils have been affected by significant changes with regard to water management, which have also modified the investigated parameters. We have classified the reambulated soil profiles among the Solonetz, Vertisol, and Gleysol reference groups based on the World Reference Base of Soil Resources (WRB) diagnostic system.

Results Land-use changes The changes of land use in the area of ​ Adamów-Koźmin between the years 1940–2011 are clear and concentrate in the immediate vicinity of open-pit mines. Shares of the surface of particular types of land use compared with a ratio test are presented in diagrams ( Fig. 4 ). The green colour shows the types of land
