Rock mass rating in Bükk Mts., N Hungary based on petrophysical parameters and parting conditions
Published September 10, 2016

In the region of Bánkút and Ómassa, Bükk Mountains the strength of the rocks of 29 outcrops was studied based on Rock Mass Rating (RMR). Strength of the rock masses showed no correlation with the material of the Formations they exposed, however, correlation between the orientation of valleys and ridges and the location of the most deformed and thus that of the rock masses with poorest qualification could be observed.

Geoinformatic background of geothermal energy utilization and its applications in East Hungary
Published September 9, 2016

Powerful geothermal energy utilisation requires geoinformatic tools from potential surveying through
the designing and setting of geothermal systems to certain operational tasks. However, practical data
processing strongly depends on the elaboration of basic data and information, the type of the geothermal
energy harvesting system and ...the character of the calculation demonstrated by case studies from East
Hungary, in addition the usability of the resulted maps are also presented. Besides their usability for
investors these maps could be refined in the location of the development before hydraulic/heat transport

Studying the development of fluvial landforms in the Berettyó-Körös Region using geoinformatic methods
Published September 4, 2016

Development of fluvial landforms from 1980 till nowadays was studied based on digital elevation maps
(DEM) composed from contour lines of topographic maps, field data obtained by RTK GPS and aerial
photos taken by a drone. Greatest denudation of 6-9 metres was measured in the eastern side of the
erosional valley at Pocsaj caused by and mass movements. As a result, the valley widened and
slightly deepened. Since 1980 around 1-2 metres of accumulation and erosion of similar rate have been
measured in the secured floodplain environment dissected by abandoned beds, point-bars and swales
at Kismarja. These values, however, rather reflect the geometric uncertainties and deficiencies of the
contours of topographic maps than real land changes. Therefore topographic maps can give reliable basis
for studying the development of lowland landforms only if they depict adequately large sized (minimum
100 x 100 m) positive or negative forms with great height difference as well (minimum 8-10 m). Accuracy
of DEMs composed from aerial photos using photogrammetric methods – taking off height faults caused
by vegetation – is around the same as that of the models created on the basis of RTK GPS measurements.
