During the Conference, results of the studies on the methods of the morphotectonic map
preparation will be presented. It will be a summary of the investigations carried out within the
whole European Lowland’s area, from the Netherlands up to Lithuania as well as on the sea
coast zones, and the lowland’s border areas with its uplands and mountains.
There will also be presented an attempt to identify the morphoindicators connected with the
endogene processes, to sort them out, and to arrange them in the form of legends for the two
following maps: a map for specialists –geologists, and a synthetic map readable by others –
namely, the regional land planning people.
The one day oral presentations session will be supplemented by a poster session.
During the consecutive days, there will be an opportunity to continue discussions at the
outcrops/researched places on the Wolin and Ruegen Islands.
