The aim of this study was to develop a hydrogeological conceptual model of TBAs to assess the dynamics of transboundary groundwater flows in the main usable aquifers between Poland and Ukraine. For this purpose, two transboundary models were developed: a geological cartographic model, and conceptual hydrogeological model. The cartographic geologic...
Conference Paper

The aim of this study was to develop a hydrogeological conceptual model of TBAs to assess the dynamics of transboundary groundwater flows in the main usable aquifers between Poland and Ukraine. In the zone of active water exchange, the transboundary flow occurs in the aquifers: 1) Quaternary with a unconfined groundwater table- in alluvia in the va...
Presentation
Full-text available
A conceptual model of the regional groundwater flow system involving transboundary aquifers (TBAs) in the Bug-San river basin was developed to identify the structure of the aquifer and its processes. The results of this study contribute to the understanding of regional groundwater flow systems and provide concrete data on the sustainable exploitati...
Technical Report
Full-text available
The aim of this report was to develop the principles of designing the Polish-Ukrainian transboundary groundwater monitoring network in relation to the needs of assessing their quantitative and chemical status. The recommendations were developed taking into account the potential of the existing national networks and the requirement of EU law. This r...

In this study, we considered 41 fens located in northern and central Poland. In our main hypothesis, we assumed that the base chemical composition of fen waters primarily depends on the hydrological regime, indicating a relationship to morphogenetic type of fen. We analyzed 40 physicochemical parameters of peatland porewater samples and discussed t...
Technical Report
Full-text available
The aim of the document is to create a conceptual understanding of the hydrogeological processes and flow dynamics across the national borders in two different pilot territories - Polish-Ukrainian and Latvian-Estonian border area. Within the framework of this report, assessment of transboundary groundwater resources, as well as the determination of...
Article
Both the lack of a continuously functioning drainage system and the neglect of the drainage infrastructure result in restoration of natural sinking processes in depression areas on the eastern side of the Odra River estuary and the Szczecin Lagoon. Persistent restoration of natural habitats can be observed in these areas. The impact of water pumpin...

... The two most commonly discussed wetland types are: Fens and Bogs. Fens are present on slopes or drainage divided and most of its water requirement is contributed by the groundwater Solovey et al., 2021). Bogs on the other hand are wetlands found at the uplands or in extensive plains/flat areas and receive much of the water from precipitation (Gibbs, 1970;Griffiths et al., 2019). ...
