Abstrakty : Menathyris wilsoni gen. et sp. nov. is described from the Limestone and Marl Member (Early Ladinian) of the Saharonim Formation (early Anisian–late Carnian), at Har Gevanim, Makhtesh Ramon, southern Israel. The Saharonim Formation represents the main transgressive phase of the Middle Triassic. The subunit, from which the shells were collected, contains the molluscs Neoschizodus laevigatus (Ziethen), Myophoriopsis cf. subundata (Schauroth), Lima cf. tellei Bittner, Pecten discites (Schlotheim), Ostrea montiscaprilis Klipstein, Pseudoplacunopsis fissistriata (Winkler), Gevanites awadi (Parnes), and the conodont Pseudofurnishius murcianus (Van den Boogaard), the last-mentioned indicative of the Fassanian (Early Ladinian).

Abstrakty : A zigzag colour pattern with additional collabral belts and irregular spots was observed on a shell of Naticopsis (N.) planispira (Phillips, 1836) found in the Gołonóg Sandstone marine faunal horizon (Namurian A, the Upper Silesian Coal Basin, Poland). A disruption in the colour pattern was also observed to have occurred during ontogenetic shell growth. In this specimen, it appeared in the healed shell damage on the outer lip. So far, only nine Carboniferous species of Naticopsis have been reported with the colour pattern preserved. The most common are the zigzag-type and the spiral band-type. Individual taxa clearly differ in the morphology of the chevrons (direction and angles of breaks) and the location and width of the spiral bands on a whorl. However, the color patterns may not be diagnostic features for the Naticopsis species, because of the large intraspecific variation and colour pattern polymorphism on the neritimorph shells. Colour patterns on Palaeozoic neritimorph shells most likely served as camouflage with respect to the bottom surface in the photic zone.

Abstrakty : The first records of pterosaurs from the Cretaceous of Poland are reported, on the basis of fragmentary remains from the marine Upper Albian (Lower Cretaceous) of the Annopol Anticline, central Poland. The new material consists of four bone fragments, tentatively interpreted as: 1) a portion of wing phalanx; 2) a medial element of fused skull bones (parietal crest?); 3) a fragmentary carpal or tarsal; and 4) a distal phalanx of the pes (or a very small fragment of a long cervical vertebra). Previously, only the remains of marine vertebrates have been reported from the Cretaceous of the Annopol area. The pterosaur fossils studied most probably belonged to individuals that died while over the sea. The possibility that they represent remains dropped from floating carcasses, introduced into the marine environment by rivers, is regarded as less probable, as there are no remains of dinosaurs or other terrestrial fauna in the Annopol deposits.

Abstrakty : The first Upper Triassic vertebrate fossil tracks are documented from the Zawiercie locality, Kraków–Częstochowa Upland, southern Poland. The most characteristic components of the assemblage are tracks, assig- nable to archosaurs and dicynodonts. The inferred composition of the fauna is comparable to those of much better studied, contemporaneous sites in Italy, Argentina and the USA.

Abstrakty : The turbiditic to hemipelagic, fine-grained deposits of the Hradiště Formation (Hauterivian, 132 Ma) to the Lhoty Formation (Albian–Cenomanian, 99 Ma) in the western part of the Silesian Nappe (Polish Outer Car- pathians) were studied mineralogically and geochemically to determine if the main factors controlling the chemistry of the sedimentary material can be attributed to provenance, or to post-depositional processes. A high degree of weathering of the source rocks is indicated by the chemical index of alteration (CIA) that varies from 75.98 to 89.86, and Th/U ratios (~4 with outliers at 1.85 and >6). The cooccurrence of rounded and unabraded grains of zircon and rutile, the enrichment in Zr and Hf, as well as the high Zr/Sc ratios suggest that the Hradiště and Veřovice Formations contain recycled material. Plots of La/Th versus Hf and Th against Sc show that samples occur in the field of felsic and mixed felsic/basic sources. On a ternary La–Th–Sc diagram, all of the sediments studied are referable to the continental island-arc field. The European Plate, as an alimentary area, has a mosaic structure consisting of Cadomian and Variscan elements. The Proto-Silesian Ridge was detached from the continent, because of rifting. Therefore, it could have corresponded to a continental island arc. The concentrations of Fe and trace metals (e.g., Mo, Au, Cu) in the Veřovice Formation and silica and potassium additions to the Veřovice and Lhoty Formations, as well as the fractionation of REE, and Nb, Ta, Zr, Hf, and Y can be explained by the action of basinal brines. The fluids were of hydrothermal origin and/or were released, owing to the dewatering of clay minerals. Diagenetic processes could have exerted a greater influence on sedimentary rock chemistry than the provenance and sedimentary processes. A distinction between primary, terrigenous elements and those changed diagenetically is necessary for the reliable determination of provenance.

Abstrakty : Three different methods of building detailed velocity models for seismic interpretation are explained and discussed in terms of their advantages and limitations. All of the proposed methods are based on the analysis of acoustic well logs. An application of acoustic full waveform measurements, as well as the FalaFWS and Estymacja software, is presented as a tool for determining P-wave and S-wave slowness (transit time interval, velocity reciprocal). Well log data from several wells, located near the special research seismic transect in the Polish Lowland, were processed using the methods proposed. The results of data analysis are presented for a depth section of up to 3623 m for the lithostratigraphic units, recorded from the Środa Wielkopolska 5 (SW5) well. The results of P-wave and S-wave slowness filtering, used to upscale well log data to a seismic scale of resolution, are shown for the entire geological profile of the SW5 well.

Słowa kluczowe : P-wave slowness, S-wave slowness, acoustic full waveforms, FalaFWS application, Estymacja program, acoustic wave frequency, seismic wave frequency,

Abstrakty : Water-table levels in the Kamienna River drainage basin, SE Poland, are presently measured at 14 observation points within the groundwater observation-research network of the Polish Geological Institute – National Research Institute, included in the monitoring programme during the period 1979–2007. They exhibit multi-year changes in groundwater storage near the observation points. The best documented cycle is that for the period 1982–2002, observed in the wells monitoring water in fractured-karstic formations, where the amplitude of the water-table level was 45 m at that time. The retention balance in the cycle was negative. At the beginning of the cycle, the water table in the fractured-karstic aquifers was 1.40 to 1.94 m higher than at the end. Further observations of the multi-year changes in retention will be the basis for possible corrections to calculations of groundwater resources in this drainage basin, as well as for model predictions of resources, performed for water management in connection with potential climate change.
