AnotationMultidisciplinary approach is used for the contemporary research of landscape development. Landscape is complex of related elements. From this point of view, multidisciplinary approach is necessary. This project will be realized in two years. Main aim will be understand of landscape development. Landscape development will be study from the geological and geomorphological history point of view and their connection with man impact. The key will be question of linkages between landscape development affected by man impact and natural hazards. Project will comprise partial researches as geomorphological evolution of landscape in connection with slope movements, problems of river continuum connected with woody debris in river channels and sediment transport, historical aspects fishponds development, baroque landscape composition, study of underground areas affected by mining activity, cartographic research linked with environmental archives data. Dendrogeomorphology, carbon dating, sedimentology, geophysical sounding, ecosystem services principles, analysis of archives data and environmental modelling methods will be used for research.
