Questions related to Croatia
Dear RG community members,
having in mind that I have really low rate of knowledge on carbon sequestration, I will need your help. My questaion is, which methodology and monitoring systems should be used for the calculation of carbon sequestration in wetlands?
regards from Croatia,
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.
I'm interested in developing a variety of footprints for the country of Croatia using Exiobase data in openLCA. Does anyone know if this is possible? SimaPro is probably better, but very expensive.
I need localities, if possible with coordinates for this species in Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia, Greece. The GBIF database looks to be rather poor.
Thank you in advance.
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.
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.
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.
Thank you a lot in advanced.
The plant is 20 cm tall. The flowers are some 12 cm long and the collective fruit (the circle of achenes) is 10 mm in diameter. Fruits are covered with soft hairs, the plant has some not dense hairs. Leaves are 15x10 mm, lobate.
It was collected in Split (S Croatia).
There is a growing pandemic of diabetes mellitus, with high treatment costs. In Croatia 1/5 of total health expenditures is spent on treatment of diabetes and its complications. There is a limited knowledge about economic efficiency of different treatment modalities for DM. Are there studies on lifestyle changes in relation with costs ?
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.
This part is some 20 cm long. Flower heads are 20 mm in diameter, flowers were relatively big, some 5-6 mm long, with visible hairy tube, longer than the calyx. Leaves are 3-4 cm long. It was collected in Split, S Croatia. Is this Lantana camara?
This plant is approx. 50 cm tall. Flowers are milky-white, petals some 5 cm long, fruits 5-6 mm long with hooks. The umbel is some 2,5-3,0 cm in diameter. It was collected near Split in S Croatia.
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.
Searching for articles that include Slavic cremation burial rite in Croatia. Also, it will be fine having something similar, even though my paper should include territory of Croatia.
Does anyone have, or know of, papers dealing with the Meloidae fauna of Croatia or its neighbouring countries? I currently have only Novak (1952), Novak (1964), Löbl and Smetana (2008) and Schlosser-Klekovski (1878), Schlosser-Klekovski (1879) so any and all references would be greatly appreciated.
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).
I am interested on the best practices in European countries such as Estonia, Latvia, Slovenia, Ireland, Luxembourg, Croatia, etc., and similar practices (if any) in the countries of South America and Southeast Asia.
I’m working on some project and need geological and tectonic maps of island Krk. I would prefer vector maps but raster will also do it and if nothing else is available I’m accepting also scans of old Yugoslav geological maps.
Does anyone have acces to this maps and would be prepaired to share them?
I am collecting information about symbol plants of different regions of Europe. Unfortunately, I couldn't find enough information from the Balkans. Any information and references are welcome.
