in result of PIGW (State Institute
of Agriculture) reorganisation the IUNG (Instittute
of Soil Science and Plant Cultivation) was established, that included
the Department of Agriculture Basics on
Rach Relief Terrains,directed initially (to
1958) byAnna Reniger,
then by Jadwiga Bury-Zalewska.
Till 1965 the Deparment consisted
of two laboratories: Water Erosion Lab. and Lab. of Protective Land
Most imporant research goals
in years 1958-1968 included:
- erosion processess (qualitative and quantitative) and factors affecting
their occurence and intensity;
- influence of land use types on eroson intensity, emphesising ecpecially
trees and bushes;
- konceptions and putting into practise a biological gully treatment
for number of loess gullies.
In 1972 the Department
of Protection and Reclamation of Rural Grounds was established,
directed by professor Jan Siuta,
in which the main research problem was "The spatial analysis of
erosion phenomenons and technique and organisation of soil protection
against erosion". The raslisation of erosion research was enrusted
to Anna i Czeslaw Jozefaciuk,
who were transferred form IMUZ (Institute of Meliorations and Grasslands)
in Lublin by the decision of the Minister of Agriculture to IUNG in
In January 1977
the Dapartment of Reclamation was joined to the Department
of Soil Science and Land Conservation, directed by professor
Tadeusz Witek. Within the
new Department structure the Lab. of Soil Erosion was established and
entrused to doc. Czeslaw Jozefaciuk. The lab. was working till 1987.
In years 1980-1985 the main research
goal was "The scientific basics and improvement of management methods
on eroded terrains", fallowed then in years 1985-1987
by two research directions: "The improvement of methods for diagnosing,
prognosing and mapping of erosion" (A. Jozefaciuk), "The improvement
of anti-erosion ground management systems" (Cz. Jozefaciuk).
In 1985 the Terrain Erosion Lab.
within PGR (State Farm) Olszanka was established. In the PGR, one organised
anti-erosion orchard (150 ha), according to the conception and project
of Cz. Jozefaciuk.
The Lab. of Soil Erosion was transformed onto the Deparment
of Soil Erosion and Management of Reach Relief Terrains
under long-term direction of professor Czeslaw Jozefaciuk, then from
1996 of professor Anna Jozefaciuk.
In year 2000
the Department of of Soil Erosion and Management of Reach Relief Terrains
was joined with the Department of Soil Science and Land Protection establishing
the Dapertment of Soil Science Erosion
Control and Land Protection, dircted by dr Tomasz
