Hazard Assessment of Adverse / Catastrophic Geological (Including Hydrogeological) Phenomena

National Science Program, WP.1.9

The purpose of this work package is to assess the geological hazard of occurrence of adverse and catastrophic geological (including hydrogeological) phenomena, and in the first place to specify the phenomena that most threaten the territory of our country. The research is focused on 4 main catastrophic geological phenomena, namely: landslides, rockfalls, debris flows and active faults. An analysis ...

Geogenic research of radon potential for evaluation of radon index in construction of new buildings

As early as 1979, the World Health Organization WHO paid attention to the health effects of radon exposure and further classified radon as a human carcinogen in 1988. The main source of radon in buildings is the ground beneath the construction. The geogenic radon potential indicates the probability that the radon source in the building is geologically related. The risk of radon in buildings is oft ...

Instrumental monitoring of cracks affecting the stability of the Madara Horseman, Madara National Historical and Archaeological Reserve, Shumen Region

The rock bas-relief Madara Horseman is split by a system of cracks, separating rock blocks and directly threatening its integrity. For this reason, a monitoring system for observation of the micromovements of dangerous rock blocks was built in 1990. It includes 2 high-sensitivity extensometers and 4 pin marks. Another extensometer and several pins were subsequently installed. After several interru ...
