Name of course leader / leaders:

Dr Andrzej Tyc



Prerequisites:

Meteorology and climatology, Basics of physical geography, Hydrology i oceanography, Geomorfology



Assumptions and objectives of the course:

Ability to use of knowledge on meteorology and climatology, hydrology and geomorphology to studies of relations between different components of Earth surface relief in different spatial scale. Ability to assessment of intensity and effects of the geomorphological processes activity for geographical environment and human, ability to recognize of extreme and normal phenomena in Earth surface modelling. Forecast of extreme processes activity in Earth environments, ability to use this knowledge in projects for different economy sectors, civil administration and spatial planning.



The form and terms of assessment of the course:

test


Registration for the course / additional notes:

yes


Content:

The role of extreme morphogenetic processes in the evolution of landscape and within the geomorphological cycle. Examples of extreme geomorphological phenomena developed as a result of extreme meteorological and hydrological processes. Presentation of these phenomena in two scales - zonal differentiation of climate of the Earth as well as vertical zonation of high mountains. The impact of human activity on the intensity and frequency of extreme phenomena.
