TEXMIN project in TRYBUNA GÓRNICZA

20/05/2021

The article in "Trybuna Górnicza" called "Not only reclamation" mentions TEXMIN project. TEXMIN project partner, Silesian Technical University from Gliwice, carries out works related to ecology and the current operation of the mines. Revitalization of post-mining areas in southern Poland is a pressing problem. TEXMIN concerns the impact of extreme weather events and long-term climate changes on mining activities, both in the case of active and closed mines. Climate change scenarios were determined on the basis of regional climate models and the baseline survey. Changes related to an increase in precipitation intensity, sudden changes in temperature and atmospheric pressure are identified and assessed in relation to mines in Europe.
