The impact of exploiting natural subsoil resources on the Subcarpathian relief (Romania)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The Subcarpathian region, formed at the external margin of the Carpathian geosyncline, is the youngest mountain unit in Romania : this new Carpathian wave represents one more trait that distinguishes the Carpathians from the other sectors of the Alpine-Himalayan system. The extraction of raw materials in the Subcarpathians had a negative impact on natural modelling, leading gradually either to a new, mad-man landscape, or to some complementary geomorphological process. The hilly zones where lignite is mined are fragile ecosystems, very vulnerable to environmental changes. Human activity-induced relief degradation has far-reaching and long-term effects on the other components of the environment : water, air, vegetation, soils and settlements. - (NF)
