Geologiczno-morfologiczne warunki rozwoju i zagadnienie ochrony krajobrazu miasta Che ma. (Geological-morphological conditions of the development of the city of Che m and the problem of landscape protection)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The relief around Che m conditioned by the geological structure has been presented. The elements of lowland relief, of the Polesie type, which intermingle with the highland relief, of the Lublin Wo yn type, have contributed to the evolution of a specific landscape which features not to be found elswhere in Poland. The landscape provided a natural background for interesting urbanistic projects in Che m. In future the hills that surround the city should be included in the protection project because of degradation caused by chaotic dispersed exploitation of Tertiary sands and because of disappearance of certain hills due to the extraction of raw materials for local cement works. Bell pits/construction catastrophes/are of direct danger for Old Che m| they are connected with underground chambers, left-over of many centuries of exploitation of chalk. However, it is possible to protect the city, because those bell pits are not connected with Karst developing in chalk around the city. (d'après l'A.).
