  • The development of the anthropogenic relief from the coal mining industry in the Wałbrzych Basin on the ground of the management of waste materials from coal mining in 1975-1996
  • Influence of hard-coal mining as regards changes in the relief of Wałbrzych Basin in the years 1975-1996. The management of waste materials from coal mining has caused an increase in the area of mining spoil heaps of about 783 ha, as well as about
  • a c. 29,8 million m3 increase in volume. Settlement covers about 35 km2 of the Wałbrzych Basin, the area under mine dumps and settlers is actually greater than that of natural forms. - (BJ)

  • Challenges for sustainable water use in dolomitic mining regions of South Africa. A case study of uranium pollution, Part I : sources and pathways
  • Carbonate rock ; Groundwater ; Hydrogeology ; Mining activity ; Pollution ; Semi-arid area ; South Africa ; Uranium ; Water pollution ; Water resources
  • Point- and non-point sources of U associated with mining activities in the Wonderfonteinspruit catchment, as an example of a dolomitic gold-mining area, as well as pathways of U pollution are discussed. Associated U loads emanating from major
  • sources are estimated. The results suggest that detected levels of U pollution in the catchment are not only caused by century old mining activities but also by current operations and that U pollution of water is likely to continue well beyond the closure

  • Restoring nature in mining areas of the Silesian Upland (Poland)
  • Environmental degradation ; Human impact ; Mining activity ; Nature conservation ; Poland ; Rehabilitation ; Silesia
  • Mining influences every component of the environment in significant and diverse ways. But even in such a devastated terrain there is evidence of the proper management of post-mining areas and natural self restoration, which paradoxically, owing
  • to mining, appear in the most intensively used economic areas. Investigations included the study of aerial photos, and of archival and contemporary maps at a scale of 1:10 000 from different time periods. Field observations consisted of observing the effects

  • Two centuries of mining have significantly changed the town of Trbovlje in economic, social and spatial terms. This is especially evident in the south-eastern part of the town. On the basis of general geographical analysis of spatial, demographic
  • and economic development, a query of public opinion and a survey of experts' ideas, with description of successful English urban renewal project we try to find out the most effective model and context of the future development in the area in question. - (IKR)

  • An assessment of some consequences of human activities on geomorphologic processes during the last century is presented. The effects of urban infrastructure development and mining on direct and indirect denudation and geologic materials transport
  • in several study areas are analysed. Data obtained indicate that people are nowadays the main geomorphic agent. It is proposed that growing population, wealth and technology is the driving force behind a widespread global geomorphic change that affects

  • Rural areas of success - in search of definitions and measures
  • Definition ; Location ; Measurement ; Region ; Rural area
  • This paper is an introduction to the discussion on rural areas of success, their definitions, methods of delimitation, conditions of localization and relationship with other socio-economical phenomena. Areas, where all indices describing
  • civilization development are relatively high and which are characterised by a constant progress in chosen measures in a given time, should be considered as the rural areas of success. This definition assumes that a region where only one of the examined planes
  • is highly developed while the other features reach values lower than the average cannot be recognized as the areas of success. Dynamic perspective is the other important element of the definition. Very important feature of the area of success

  • The topic is connected with the issue green and open area development referring to the theory of corridors and taking into consideration foundations of the conception. The theme of analysis looks into the issue of environment preservation
  • and the balanced development of areas connected with a communication network. Attention was paid to the subject of forming a system of green open areas, recreation space, shaping along the communication axis. The green areas have a spacial significance

  • Demographic resources of Croatia's border areas
  • With regard to the form of the state territory, the border areas of Croatia are mainly peripheral areas in a socio-economic and in a cultural sense. They are predominantly rural regions with small, elderly and less educated populations, defected

  • The SHETRAN physically based, spatially distributed model is used to investigate the scaling relationship linking specific sediment yield to river basin area, for two contrasting topographies of upland and more homogeneous terrain and as a function
  • of sediment source, land use and rainfall distribution. The sediment yield/basin area relationship can be inverse or direct, depending on basin characteristics. There still remains, therefore, considerable scope for defining a universal scaling law
