The main purpose of our survey is to make an assessment of quarry influence on the local climate conditions and to observe an impact on possible changes in species diversity at surrounding forest habitats. Land snails were chosen as ideal sample of animals, because of their environmental sensitivity. Changes of species diversity and its composition along transect enable us to quantify and evaluate the impact of quarry according to the distance from the quarry. We will describe if and how different is the impact of active and recultivated parts of quarry on the environment.
The second topic of our project is an influence of the quarry on local precipitations, soil moisture and temperature. The research is based on premise on thermal columns creation in view of mining area relief and weather conditions. These thermal columns should have an effect on cloudiness in the quarry neighborhood.
The project will help for better and integrated understanding of quarry influence on the neighboring environments. As the Mokra quarry is located close to the Protected Landscape Area Moravsky kras, the thesis will be also interesting in environment protection.

Making final report

So finally, we collected data from all parts of our research and we can make final report.

Models of thermal columns

We have finally done models of thermal columns, which are resulting in a quarry. We tried different speed of wind.

Completing data from collecting snails

After collecting samples of soil in our transects, where have to determine all species of snails. We took samples in a different distance from a quarry and now the fun begins!

Whole day in quarry

As we want to compare temperature in quarry measured by data loggers and temperature of quarry wall, we have to spend a day in quarry and took photos of wall by Thermocam.

Visiting quarry and collecting samples of soil

We visited Mokrá Quarry for collecting samples of soil in our transects, where we are going to observe all species of snails. We took samples in a different distance from a quarry as we want to find out if and how there is changing an amount of snails and also how the species are changing due to the moisture. We also placed pluviometers all around the quarry and also in villages nearby for measuring total rainfall. For predicting the thermal columns, we placed 3 temperature loggers on a quarry...
