On the need to develop the second edition of the Detailed Geological Map of the Sudetes at the scale of 1 : 25,000 – current state analysis and assumptions of a comprehensive program for the second edition.
A b s t r a c t. Basic statutory task of the Polish Geological Institute – National Research Institute within the framework of the State Geological Survey is conducting detailed geological mapping of Poland. One of the leading themes of the III Polish Geological Congress is the “Geological mapping – history and contemporary challenges”. The article presents an analysis of the current state of detailed geological mapping in the Sudetes and adjacent areas, as well as the reasons for the need to start a new, second edition of the Detailed Geological Map of the Sudetes (SMGS) at the scale of 1 : 25,000. These reasons can be briefly defined as follows: long-lasting duration of the SMGS development (nearly half a century), lack of uniformity, and outdatedness of this edition. The first edition covered 139 map sheets at the scale of 1 : 25,000, with a total area over 10,100 km2. The newly presented comprehensive project assumes very fast workflow,
just 10 years of work before the implementation of the second edition of the 1 : 25,000 SMGS. The new edition is going to be more modern and based on the new classification of rocks, providing more information about their origins, geotectonic settings, as well as the processes and geological phenomena, which are not included in the first edition of the 1 : 25,000 SMGS.
