Abstrakty : The Cretaceous basin of the Lublin area belongs to the SE part of the Mid-Polish Trough and its NE border extending on the East European Craton. Our study is based on isopach maps of seven time intervals, from Neocomian to Early Maastrichtian. Several main lithofacies have been distinguished whose areal extents were plotted on thickness pattern maps. The isopach and lithofacies maps helped to delimit the basin depocenter, providing information on vertical motions of the basin basement and synsedimentary reactivation of older fault zones. The areal extents of the siliceous and chalk lithofacies have been shown to be controlled by the positions of discontinuity zones in the crystalline basement. Two stages of accelerated subsidence have been established: in Turonian and Early Maastrichtian times. Regional comparisons of accumulation rates and their accelerations during these time spans gave possibility to distinguish the roles of eustatic and tectonic factors in the process of augmenting the basin capacity. Some remarks concerning Early Maastrichtian timing of the inversion onset are also presented.

Abstrakty : The studied area of ca. 500 km2 lies within the Main Anticline and the Bytom-Dąbrowa Trough of the Upper Silesia Coal Basin. During the deposition of the fluvial Zabrze Beds, this area was subject to differential subsidence which resulted in gradual eastward thinning of this unit from ca. 250 m near Zabrze to ca. 4 m near Sosnowiec. Maps of net sandstone and coal contents in two stratigraphical intervals selected within the Zabrze Beds point to the presence of four channel tracts. The main tract is parallel to the NE-SW trending axis of maximum subsidence, and the other three are perpendicular to it. During deposition of the Zabrze Beds the main, NE-SW trending channel tract has shifted westward.

Abstrakty : The Markov chains procedure was applied to the study on the sequences of lithofacies and depositional intervals in the Godula Beds (Turonian-Lower Senonian) of the Flysch Carpathians. The model (depositional) and modal (a most frequent in profile) diagrams were constructed and corresponding sequences were recognized. It was found that deposition from high-density turbidity currents of variable retardation rates was the dominating mechanism whereas the low-density turbidity currents were rather rare. The newly deposited sediments were commonly eroded by the succeeding, dense currents. Deposition processes were dominated by the two clearly separated environments: channels and depositional lobes. Their systems were subjected to frequent changes due to lateral migration caused by tectonic movements (uplift of cordilleras and subsidence of sea floor) and eustatic changes of sea level.

Abstrakty : The paper describes scours and crevasse splays formed at the breaks in embankments of the upper Vistula river valley during the summer 1997 flood. The scours cut into the floodplain composed of fining upward channel and overbank deposits. Erosional furrows have developed locally around the scours. In their vicinity, a thin layer of channel-ag gravel was locally laid down. Variously shaped crevasse splays were formed: finger-like, deltoidal and tongue-like. Surface relief, vege-tation and buildings controlled their geometry and sedimentary features. The lower parts of the deposits consist of fine and medium sands with horizontal and low-angle stratification. Higher in the sequences medium and coarse sands with pebbles display planar cross-stratification. Mud balls and black oak trunks redeposited from older alluvia are common. The whole succession represents sheet-flow sediments with partly channelized flow. Locally, at the top, coarse sands, pebbles, mud balls and boulders embedded in silty-sandy matrix occur, representing slurry-flow deposits. Also present were sediments composed of alternating sands and mud pebbles. The vanishing flow phase is marked by occasional ripple marks encountered in the top part of the sequence. Around the flow obstacles (plants, buildings) sand shadows were formed, composed of fine and medium sands with horizontal stratification in the lower parts and ripple cross-lamination along with climbing cross-lamination in the upper parts. The top part included medium and coarse sands with planar cross-stratification. Most of the studied sequences showed coarse-upward grading which is not the effect of changes in the energy of flood waters but originates from the supply of all the time coarser material from the successively deepening scours.
