It has been noted in many researches that gully headcuts are main drivers of gully erosion and upstream migration. Most commonly used definitions describe gully headcut as near-vertical step at which most intense erosion occurs, e.g.:
Rengers and Tucker, 2014. - Headcuts are near‐vertical steps that erode the valley network by migrating upstream over time (Bull and Kirkby , 2002) and add mobile sediment to gully channels downstream (Tucker et al. , 2006).
Vanmaercke et al., 2016. - A gully headcut is a natural, nearly vertical drop in gully channel-bed elevation (Poesen et al., 2003).
Since these are predominately descriptive definitions, I would like to know is it possible to delineate quantifiable definition of a gully headut ?
Such definition would be based on measurements that could be extracted from high-resolution DEM (e.g. required slope angle; headcut horizontal length; headcut height…), rather than on the descriptive, non-quantifiable information.
I understand that such definition would vary depending on local terrain characteristics and characteristics of local gully erosion predisposing factors. But even general quantifiable definition would be very helpful for detection of gully headcuts.
In the attachment is large gully headcut from my research study area, located at Pag Island, Croatia. Within Pag Island large number of small headcuts can be found, that are less distinguishable then the one in this picture.

On 29 December 2020, an earthquake of magnitude 6.2 on the Richter scale rocked near town Petrinja (Sisak-Moslavina county, Croatia), with an epicenter 5 km west-southwest of the town and at a depth of about 10 km. Before this event there were some foreshocks and aftershocks, the strongest were about 5 on the Richter scale. Officals announce that half of this town has been destroyed. The earthquake was felt throughout northern Croatia, as well as in many nearby countries.
Among other things, Marija Smolić (4th grade - Juraj Baraković High School Zadar) writes in her communication “Oil exploitation in Croatia: ... As already mentioned, Moslavina has a long tradition of oil exploitation. Although oil began to be extracted in 1854 by hand, until the beginning of the 20th century. there were no significant successes in oil production in Moslavina. There are 18 oil fields in the Sava Valley, but not all fields are operational. Stružec is the largest oil and gas field in Moslavina, but also one of the largest in Croatia. Along with Stružec, the most abundant fields in the Sava Valley are Žutica and Ivanić”. So, the oil and gas fields nearby to ​​Petrinja were/are highly exploited. Stružec is only about 30 km from this town.
Reports say that the strongest earthquake near Petrinja was occurring at relatively shallow depth of about 10 km, followed by numerous intensive aftershocks at rather shallower depths (some of them even at a depth of about 1 km). In my opinion, increased and prolonged seismicity of the in the devastated region of Petrinja-Sisak-Moslavina is possible induced by oil/gas exploitation. This possibility is also indicated by the occurrence of numerous mud eruptions and huge holes in this area.
Relevant answer
Answer
Any hasty conclusion of oil & gas exploitation without doing any scientific work to understand the possible reason for earthquakes in that location is a poor judgment. Enrique clearly demonstrated the fundamental difference between oil extraction and water injection in a given reservoir.
Possibly waster water injection near to fracture/fault network could induce seismicity but not due to the extraction of oil & gas energy.

Red paleosol (RP) covering the carbonate basement exposed at the bottom of the loess section was investigated to give a systematic and deeper palaeopedological insight into reddish materials on the island of Susak (Croatia). RP contains different types of Fe and Fe/Mn nodules. After detailed micromorphological analysis with polarizing microscope, nodules were analyzed by the means of scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) with EDXS probe and X–ray diffraction. Some nodules contain features as shown on photographs 1 and 2.

A group of scientists is conducting such research on the streets of Split 3, Croatia, and Zenica, at B&H. We would like to compare the results of similar research in cities with up to 300,000 inhabitants.
Relevant answer
Answer
Good afternoon Višnja,
In response to your question, I am not aware of any research attempting to find out if there is any connection between number of pedestrians and street programme. However, I would assume that the number of pedestrians although importnat is unlikley to determine completly the street programme.
The street programme might be well shaped by the planning or economic regulations. For example, the planning doctrine in England would not allow for number of, especially large scale, similar uses on a single street or within an area, if there are similar facilities already in existance nearby. From the customer point of view this may look as supression of competition. However, from the authorities point of view they want to ensure the long term viability and economic sustainability of the busniess especially in the central district areas. Therefore, planners may insist for studies to be carried out to proove that there is an excess demand for a particular service or similar that would justify opening of a similar facility in the area.
I have not followed their recent work and therefore, i am not aware if "Space Sintax" might have carried out a reserach of a similar nature to the one being undertaken in Split and Zenica.
Also RIBA used to have an associated think-thank organisation called "Building Futures" that had a project on how demographhic and economic change will reshape the future of the high street, which may influence future programming of central areas.
With Best Wishes

Dear colleges,
I am preparing my Doctoral Thesis on the Faculty of Organization and Informatics in Varaždin. Actually, the area of research is public policies readiness for e-inclusion of 54+. The most used method for that kind of research is Grounded Theory Method applied on strategic documents and interviews of policy makers. The evaluation of categories and subcategories relevant to readiness of public policies, as well as final model of readiness assessment, have to be done by experts for public policies and e-Inclusion, so I am trying to found who can be the one in countries: Austria, Germany, Hungary, Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Serbia who can help me by evaluation. I appreciate if you can help me to suggest the relevant exerts from YOUR COUNTRY for that kind of research.

At the University of Spit, Croatia we are about to purchase cryogen-free system which has to meet following criteria:
- base temperature <2K,
- axial magnetic field <9T,
- flexibility for future upgrades (He-3, electrical, magnetic and thermal measurement options, sample rotation)
There are several systems available on the market:
- Cryogenic miniCFMS
- Oxford TeslatronPT
- Scientific Magnetics
- Janis DryMag1.5
I would appreciate if you share your experience for mentioned systems or to recommend the other one.
Relevant answer
Answer
Magnets wound from NbTi or Nb3Sn may be conduction-cooled and operate in vacuum without the need of liquid helium(e.g., “cryogen-free”). Cryogen free systems can replace most conventional liquid helium cooled magnet systems if a compact system is required, or if liquid helium is undesirable or unavailable.Current leads constructed with HTS material allow the system to be cooled using either a G-M or Pulse Tube type cryocooler.

The specimen was caught in the area of Lastovo island in Croatia at a depth of 70 meters. It was an recently spawned female, 47 cm long. It has radically different coloration than other specimens of the same species which are mostly brown. We suspect this is a case of xanthochromism, but any other theory is more than welcome. It would be very interesting to know of other experiences with this or similar type of coloration in this species. Additionaly, patches of brown coloration were still visible on the head of the specimen.
Thank you!
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Branko
Your fish have the case known as the xanthic phenotype, where the majority of the body coloration turns to yellow. Your specimen is also showing a different pattern of spotting. Are you sure it is the T. radiatus? if you are sure, then the gene mutation that responsible for the xanthic phenotype has also changed the pattern of spotting.
Please feel free to get in contact with me.

I'm interested in (medieval) cases where burials with people who had leprosy were not isolated, but were included in the settlement's graveyard, thus perhaps showing some sort of care for the sick etc.
There's a case in Croatia where 4 leper burials were found in a single graveyard of all together 112 burials. The leper burials were obviously not isolated, the artifacts found in the graves didn't differ from other graves and there were even two dual burials (sick female + healthy male).

Dear Afrim,
the Croatian diaspora is enabled a right to vote in the presidential and parliamentary elections. This is regulated by the Constitution of Croatia. The country must organise polling places, usually in embassies.
The diaspora also has a say in a referendum, although when collecting signatures for a referendum (10% of all eligible voters is required to carry out a referendum) the referendum campaign group doesn't collect outside of Croatia, mostly because it is not sure how this should be conducted.
Hope this helps!
