Welcome, Visitor!

As Faculty of Earth Sciences and Spatial Management, we offer education on our four main faculties:

geography, tourism and recreation, geoinformatics and spatial management.

We have plenty of courses offered in English for Erasmus+ students:

Other information

Geology and geomorphology

9

winter

Outline: The subject includes knowledge of the construction of the Earth and the natural processes occurring deeply inside and on the surface of the Earth. It contains characteristics of the Earth's surface forms of various origin and educates in the ability to recognize essential minerals and rocks and geomorphological forms emerging in different climatic zones. The subject outlines the impact of human activities on the surface relief

Meteorology and hydrology in practice, part I

4

winter

Outline: The subject includes lectures on physics of the atmosphere and water management with the elements of the law. The main objective is: to present the specifics of the processes occurring in the atmosphere and to use the meteorological and climatological knowledge in a practice of human activity as well as to outline the possibility of water resources usage

Biogeography and environment protection

3

winter

Outline: The subject covers the issues and characteristics of the spatial distribution of biomes on the planet, phyto- and zoogeographic regions. Basic types of zonal and azonal vegetation are characterized as well as changes in the flora and fauna during the Cenozoic. Issues of biodiversity, sustainable development and global environmental problems are discussed. Forms of nature protection – both in national and international scales are presented.

Subject field exercises - geomorphology

2

spring

Outline: Fieldwork in the geomorphology are intended to familiarize students with the dominant elements of surface relief in the Lublin region. Presented are also the processes shaping the individual elements of the relief including the factors determining their intensity

Meteorology and hydrology in practice part II

7

spring

Outline: The classes include issues of synoptic meteorology and applied climatology, documentation of groundwater resources, hydrochemistry in environmental studies and natural basis of melioration.

Pedology (soil science) – fieldwork

3

spring

Outline: Fieldwork of soil science aims at digging up soil pits and making the description of the soil layers, which leads to its classification and / or grading with particular emphasis on the geological structure, relief, water relations, vegetation and forms of land use.

Regional field excercises - Pomorze

6

spring

Outline: Fieldwork in the Kashubian Lake District, and in the Embankment of Gdansk and Koszalin familiarize the student with the guiding characteristics of the geographical environment of macro-regions and their basic functions in the past and present. They demonstrate how human activities are related to the components of the geographical environment and nature conservation.

Regional field excercises – Bieszczady mountains

4

spring

Outline: Field exercises in Bieszczady familiarize student with the leading features of the geographical environment and the basic functions of the region. During fieldwork, students learn about geology, geomorphology, hydrology, climatology, environmental protetion, history and cultural heritage as well as the settlement and economy of that part of Poland.

Gis interoperability

2

winter or spring

Outline: Advanced interoperability functions make GIS a place of integration of spatial data obtained from a variety of specialized programs. Knowing how to exchange data with other programs (e.g. mathematical analysis, computer graphics or threedimensional modelers) can increase the efficiency of analysis and visualization of spatial information and increase the visual quality of the research results. The aim of the course is to develop skills of expanding the functionality of ArcGIS with possibilities of MS Excel, CorelDRAW and Google SketchUP.
