Popular Science: The mysterious history of chernozems

Chernozems, which have developed over thousands of years, are one of the most fertile soils. The typical vegetation of chernozems are steppe and forest-steppe. However, their evolution was also significantly influenced by human activity, which has been transforming the soil since the Neolithic period. Using modern methods, a group of experts, including Luděk Šefrna from the Department of Physical Geography and Geoecology, examined their paleoenvironmental history.

How to easily detect the presence of water in rocks

How to easily detect the presence of water in rocks

Sandstone, whether as a natural cliff or a building material, contains water in its pores. This water transports dissolved salts, which can cause surface erosion due to crystallization, creating interesting geomorphological shapes or causing the disintegration of monuments. So far, there has been no method that could reliably and cost-effectively detect water at the sandstone subsurface. However, scientists from the Faculty of Science came up with a simple but effective solution.
