Effect of tectonics on relief in the southern part of the Lublin region

Tadeusz Krynicki


Analysis of wave image recorded on seismic profiles has shown that configuration of land surface is dependent on tectonics. Zones of tectonic disturbances frequently overlap depressions in ground surface, sometimes are consistent with places where a change is observed in a slope of ground surface. This suggests that faults occur in the entire complex of Cretaceous sediments. However, amplitudes of their throw are not large. Results of reflection survey should be employed in order to recognize the tectonics of Cretaceous deposits. Data dealing with measurements of Low Velocity Zone should be included in this task.
