The influence of the vertical and longitudinal climatic differences in South Poland upon the regional pattern of phenological units

Barbara Obrębska-Starklowa

Geographia Polonica (1980) vol. 43, pp. 85-100 | Full text

Further information

Abstract:

The aim of this paper is to find connections between the climatic conditions and the rhythm of the seasonal plant development in the upper Vistula basin. Owing to the vastness of this area stretching from west to east, and to its varied relief, the dominating feature of the phenological phenomena is its differentia-tion in the west-east cross-section and, above all, in the vertical profile. There-fore particular stress has been laid in this paper on specifying the role of the geographical coordinates (altitude, latitude and longitude) and of climatic ele-ments in shaping the phenological regime of the particular physiographical units.

Geomorphological evidence of Holocene climatic changes in Northern Mongolia

Kazimierz Klimek

Geographia Polonica (1980) vol. 43, pp. 101-111 | Full text

Further information

Abstract:

Changes of climate which occurred in Central Asia during the Upper Quaternary, and the resultant geomorphological and sedimentological effects are only briefly mentioned in publications (Murzayeva et al., 1971; Ravskiy 1972; Gravis and Lisun 1974; Murzayeva et al. 1973). In the detailed consideration of events in both their regional distribution and their chronological order (paleo-geographical aspect) many unresolved questions still remain. One of the problems is that of the changes of Holocene climate.This paper provides a paleoclimatic interpretation of the results of both geomorphological and sedimentological research made in Northern Mongolia during three summers, 1976-1978. The areas of study were in the major valleys of the Selenga-Orkhon mountains of intermediate height.

The structure of altitudinal zonation of soils in the Donoin Dzun-nuruu Massif, Khangai Mts (Mongolia)

Alojzy Kowalkowski

Geographia Polonica (1980) vol. 43, pp. 111-124 | Full text

Further information

Abstract:

The specific vertical zonation of soils within the soil-geographic zones in Mon-golia is determined by the hydrothermal conditions there, which are modified by the mountain chains. In addition to altitude above sea level, exposure, slope in-clination, geographic situation and meso- and microclimatic conditions, the structure of vertical soil-zones is determined by the width, openness, and depth of the valleys separating the mountains as well as individual crests. In con-sequence of the combined action of various factors, the soil-zones tend to become asymmetric and undergo inversion (Dorzhgotov 1975; Dorzhgotov and Kowalkowski 1981). First, solifluction, fluvial and eolian processes as well as zoogenic erosion of varying intensity yield in effect a specific structure of the soil cover within each individual zone. The actual effect of each such process in soil formation depends on the geographic situation of any given mountain complex. The granodioritic crest of the Donoin Dzun-nuruu in the central part of the Khangai Mts is an example of this dependence. The crest is situated in the horizontal zone of forest permafrost brown soils with a semihumid variant of the Khangai vertical zonation structure (Dorzhgotov and Kowal-kowski 1981) within a very cool wet climatic zone (Badarch 1975).

Spatial problems of Poland's postwar industrialization, 1945-1975

Stanisław Misztal, Wojciech Kaczorowski

Geographia Polonica (1980) vol. 43, pp. 199-212 | Full text

Further information

Abstract:

The purpose of the present paper is to provide general assessment of changes in the spatial structure of industrialization of Poland during the post-war period of 1945 till 1975 (as observed according to the new administrative division of the country into 49 voivodships, in force since June 1st 1975). Some attempts at formulating assessments of such changes in industry location in Poland, whether within the frame of the previous 22 voivodships or within the poviats, liquidated in 1975, were made earlier by many authors, e.g. by A. Wrzo-sek 1960, S. Leszczycki 1965, A. Kukliński 1966, A. M. Dawson 1970, S. Róg 1972, L. W. Murray Jr and G. J. Karaska 1975, or R. Wilczewski 1978. Because of the essential reshapement of the administrative division of the country which took place in 1975 all these attempts became largely out of date.

The Upper-Silesian Core Region: its growth and evolution

Lech Pakuła

Geographia Polonica (1980) vol. 43, pp. 213-222 | Full text

Further information

Abstract:

The present contribution is part of my studies on the processes of industrial agglomeration in the group of industrial districts of the Upper-Silesian Core Region* It is intended to show how agglomeration processes in industry take place parallelly to the growth of industrial potential and to structural changes, and how they affect the space-functional integration of the Upper-Silesian Industrial District (hereafter referred to as USID) with the four districts around it.The process of concentration in space of production now under way and the reinforcement of integrative links of different scope speed up the emergence of a spatially continuous industrial core region.

The processes of industrial integration between the different districts around the USID with the USID itself are a good illustration of the theory that industrial core regions develop by 'burgeoning'.

An attempt to apply the method of taxonomic classification of linearly ordered sets to the delimitation of zones of land use in Cracow

Rajmund Mydel

Geographia Polonica (1980) vol. 43, pp. 283-288 | Full text

Further information

Abstract:

In this study the author attempts to delimit the zones of land use for the city of Cracow by the method of taxonomic classification of linearly ordered sets (Grabiński, 1975). The zones are delimited in virtue of the structural fea-tures of a profile running from the city core (the Main Market place — Rynek Główny) to its western boundaries for which a detailed survey of land use had been made to the scale of 1:1000 in 1972-1973.
