Late Pleistocene deglaciation, 10Be exposure ages, the Vosges, the Krkonoše Mountains

The paper is focused on correlation of Late Pleistocene deglaciation of the Vosges in Eastern France and the Krkonoše Mountains in the Bohemian Massif through measurements of in situ-produced cosmogenic 10Be ages of glacial landforms. The minimum 10Be exposure ages of deglaciation after the last glacial expansion in the eastern flank of the Vosges range from 19.2 ± 2.09 ka to 5.11 ± 1.25 ka and in the Krkonoše Mountains from 27.17 ± 2.26 ka to 4.41 ± 0.52 ka. The results indicate a rapid retreat of glaciers in the Vosges at 10.2 ± 0.45 ka and they do not evidence of significant 10Be exposure ages variations with altitude. In the Krkonoše Mountains the most recent glacial expansion was completed before 13.81 ± 1.29 ka and 12.45 ± 1.68 ka respectively for the Labský důl Valley and the Obří důl Valley. Labský důl Valley deglaciation began on south facing slopes at 995 m a. s. l. 14.37 ± 1.37 ka ago, near terminal moraines at 820 m 13.81 ± 1.29 ka ago and reached the upper end of the cirque (1 275 m) at 10.3 ± 0.86 ka. In the Obří důl Valley cirque, the deglaciation started at 990 m around 12.45 ± 1.68 ka and was completed in the main cirque (1 180 m) at 9.58 ± 1.14 ka. The 10Be exposure ages of deglaciation for both the Vosges and the Krkonoše Mountains appears to be related to the Younger Dryas climate event.

internal migration, functional urban regions, interregional migration flows, rural-urban migration, population redistribution, Slovakia

This paper provides some new insights into the changing pattern of internal migration in Slovakia during the 1996-2004 period based on anonymized migration data from current registration of population. After an extensive discussion of the data set and geographical frameworks used, the characteristic features of migration flows between the 66 functional urban regions are examined. Then, the analysis is turned to migration exchange between the urban and rural components of the settlement system revealing significant changes in migration directions. In the last section, the role of migration in the process of population redistribution is analysed and the main tendencies within and between functional urban regions are identified.

geographic information systems, spatial models, field-based models, regionalization, area, boundary, overlay

The paper is focused on mathematical formalization of selected terms from the field of geography and landscape ecology. Developed mathematical formalism enables general problem description at the theoretical level, independently from the target computer system. For this purpose the field-based approach seems to be more appropriate than a classic object-based approach. The representation of selected concepts was developed by use of suitable mathematical structures: landscape (system), territory (two-dimensional interval), landscape property (function, field), regionalization (decomposition), area (continuous set). Spatial operations such as overlay of thematic layers, buffering and so on can be expressed at the abstract level by use of characteristic functions and distance operator. Duality between landscape properties (fields) and regionalization (decomposition) preserves the close relationship between object-based and field-based approaches.

population forecast, regional population forecast, theoretical concept, relationships of disciplines, system of science

The paper deals with terminology and the theoretical concept of regional population forecasting. There are many questionable terms in this discipline. We show and clarify some of the terms, with unclear or confusing use in practice, such as forecast and projection, prediction and estimation, adjective population versus demographic projection. The second main aim of this study is to work out a simplified concept – model of the position of this discipline in the system of science. Since we distinguish differences between population forecasting and regional population forecasting, we try to indicate the mutual relationship schematically in the paper.
