20.3.2019 Palaeogeographical Evolution and Geodynamics of Central Europe (J. Kalvoda) Evolution of the physical-geographical environment of Central Europe is explained and documented with an emphasis to integration of orogenetic and climatic processes in the late Cenozoic. Main geodynamic events and processes are characterized and evaluated in the framework of the palaeogeographical history of Central Europe.
27.3.2019 Pedology and pedogeography of the Czech Republic (T. Chuman)
