THE RESEARCH CURRENT GEOMORPHOLOGICAL PROCESSES AND FORMS OF RELIEF ON THE LANDFILL SITE WASTE FROM NICKEL PRODUCTION
Published: 28 May 2015
Abstract: Anthropogenic landforms of relief were created in the landscape by man by the action of exogenous anthropogenic geomorphological processes. Since that all the anthropogenic forms of the relief are located in the current landscape so are influenced today by the natural geomorphological processes. Anthropogenic landforms of relief are directly dependent on the growth of population and on the demands the society for meet their needs (energy, processing of raw materials, agricultural production etc.) which points to the growth of these forms in the future. The variety and number of anthropogenic relief forms will continually expand and their impact on the environment will be greater. Anthropogenic landforms of relief are artificial elements in the landscape and their formation disrupts the dynamic equilibrium of the landscape. In this paper we deal the nature of geomorphological processes and the subsequent forms of relief incurred to the landfill site of metallurgical waste from nickel production over the past three decades. The aim of this paper is to highlight the current geomorphological processes and forms of relief on the example of industrial landfill of lúženec at Sereď in Slovak Republic that has evolved over the last 25 - 30 years (after the ending production of nickel) under influence of anthropogenic geomorphological processes and natural geomorphological processes in moderate climate zone.
