Cooperation offer

The Center offers a wide range of cooperation in many research fields:

botany

Szara ikona: liść

  1. Analysis of changes in the chemical composition of cell walls (using immunohistochemical methods) under the influence of biotic and abiotic factors.
  2. Assessment of cell ultrastructure under the influence of environmental pollutants, including nanoparticles.
  3. Analysis of formation and regeneration of vascular tissue after wounding in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana.
  4. Analysis of auxin canalized transport in Arabidopsis inflorescence stems under controllable experimental conditions.

climate changes

Szara ikona: glob

  1. Analysis of current climate change and assessment of trends and variability in extreme weather conditions and their relationship with atmospheric circulation.
  2. Multifaceted studies of changes and factors controlling changes in atmospheric precipitation concerning its phase and types (rain, snow, etc.).
  3. Analysis of surface-based air temperature inversions in the urban environment under the background of weather conditions and its impact on air pollution.
  4. Dendrochronological reconstruction of climate change in various landscape zones (with particular emphasis on extreme events).

dendrochronology

Szara ikona: drzewo

  1. Spatial and temporal reconstruction of air pollution using the dendrochronological method.
  2. Dendrochronological dating of wood from historical and archaeological objects.
  3. Dendrochronological analysis of charcoal.

geochemistry

Szara ikona: butelka z substancją chemiczną

  1. Analysis and interpretation of organic compounds in sedimentary organic matter.
  2. Processes of initial pedogenesis and role of saccharides in soil formation.
  3. Polycyclic aromatic compounds in sedimentary rocks.
  4. Oil – source rocks and oil – oil correlation.
  5. Organic pollutants in aerosols and soil.

natural hazard, geomorphology

Szara ikona: góra i osuwające się skały

  1. Geohazard analysis of the frequency of mass movements using dendrochronological method
  2. Landslide hazard and risk assessment using dendrochronological method.
  3. Estimating the parameters of floods with the use of dendrochronology and 2D hydrodynamic model.
  4. Cover collapse risk assessment in karst areas with the use of geoinformation methods.

palaeontology

Szara ikona: skamielina, muszla ślimaka

  1. Occurrence, distribution and significance of wildfires during Palaeozoic and Mesozoic.
  2. Saccharides in Mesozoic and Cenozoic lignites and their preservation potential. Mid-Paleozoic Mass Extinctions and Biotic Crises.
  3. Oceanic anoxic events (especially Late Devonian and Early Carboniferous).
  4. Geochemistry of sedimentary rocks and palaeoecology.

urbanization development

Szara ikona: fabryka
