SIGNIFICANCE OF THE ROAD-CUTS AND OTHER ROCK SECTIONS EXPOSED BY THE NEW LINEAR INVESTMENTS FOR THE GEOLOGICAL RESEARCH IN POLAND

Abstract


The road-cuts and other new excavation works provide an excellent opportunity for upgrading the geological maps in Poland. Such opportunity should not be missed. Updating The Detailed Geological Map of Poland at the scale of 1:50 000 should be the priority. Ephemeral nature of the freshly cut outcrops makes this research rather urgent. It would require an adequate planning and organization. Geological mapping based on the new road-cuts and rock sections exposed by new investments should be one of the main tasks of the Geological Survey of Poland.
