NCN Preludium in the ST10 panel
Subject: Influence of downhill skiing on the morphodynamics of the alpine catchment. An example from the area of Kasprowy Wierch, Polish Tatras.
Amount: 126 082 PLN. 
The aim of the research is to show the influence of outdoor skiing on the morphodynamics of the catchment area in the high mountains. Modification of the relief operation may lead to a change in the directions of the functioning of the entire natural environment in such a particularly sensitive and valuable area as the area located above the upper forest border in the Tatra National Park. This research is a new voice on how human activities focused on recreation can cause changes in the direction of development of even such a theoretically stable element of the environment as the topography.
