Content:

Lectures: forms of land relief and geomorphologic processes influencing relief in selected areas of the world (Spitsbergen, Scandinavia, Siberia, Alps, Balkan Peninsula, Italy, Rocky Mountains – USA and Canada, Caucasus, Mongolia, Tibet Upland, Himalayas, China, South Brazil, Republic of South Africa).

Tutorials: development of geomorphologic processes of an arid zone – Mongolia case study, characteristic of natural environment of Changaj Mountains and Gurvan Turuu on the background of Central Asia – geological and climatic influences on relief, influence of climate on the development of water courses, modern geomorphologic processes, zonality of soil and vegetation, connections with land relief. Development of geomorphologic processes in different latitudes with special reference to glacial, periglacial, karstic and volcanic relief. Oscillations of vertical zones in the mountains of Europe and Asia in late glacial period and Holocene, records of changes in land relief and deposits.
