AGH UST Land Surveyors Verify Peak Heights. Why Do the Measurements Change?

On the left side, there is a GNSS receiver. It is the colour of steel and stands on a tripod. The AGH UST flag is wrapped around the tripod. The flag is composed of three horizontal stripes coloured, from the top, green, black, and red. The background of the photo constitutes a mountain crest. Granite rocks covered in green flora are visible. Above the mountain crest there is a blue sky, which is partly covered by white and grey clouds.

Scientists from the Faculty of Mining Surveying and Environmental Engineering have measured the heights of the highest summits in Ukraine and the Crown of Polish Mountains. Their efforts, which have already been reported in the...

Graph Transformations to Help with Simulations of Pollution Propagation over Małopolska Province

The picture shows 3D simulation of air movement over the Tatra Mountains in Poland. The terrain is covered with a topographic mesh made of triangular elements. Lower parts of the mountains are coloured in blue and higher parts gradually change to orange. The northwest wind is marked with grey arrows.

How powerful should computers be to effectively predict the propagation of pollution throughout the territory of the Małopolska Province? A research group headed by Professor Maciej Paszyński from the Faculty of Computer Science,...
