Abstract

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)
