Authors

RNDr. Jan Cháb, Ph.D.

He has mostly been involved in studies of petrology of metamorphic and intrusive rocks and in the synthesis of geological structure of the Bohemian Massif. He worked in the Precambrian of Central and West Bohemia, the Železné hory Mts., the basement of the Bohemian Cretaceous Basin, the crystalline complex of the Hrubý Jeseník Mts. and the Giant Mountains. He also shortly taught at the Department of Petrology of the Faculty of Science of Charles University, and was a member of the Scientific Board of the Geological Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. He has also published 90 papers of which some represent syntheses of metamorphic and structural development of the Bohemian Massif. He was in charge of mapping operations in the Precambrian of Central and West Bohemia and was involved in the survey of the Hrubý Jeseník Mts. He is the editor of several map sheets and reviewed and edited maps of the Příbram ore district.

RNDr. Zdeněk Stráník, DrSc.

His major fields of interest include regional geological studies and mapping of sedimentary formations, sedimentology, stratigraphy, tectonics and petroleum geology. He paid particular attention to the Flysch Belt, Carpathian Foredeep and the Vienna Basin. He was a member of the Scientific Board and Line Committee of the Faculty of Science of Masaryk University and for many years he cooperated with the Vienna Geological Institute. He is the author of nearly two hundred papers published in Czech and foreign scientific journals including a university textbook. He has also been the editor of numerous maps at scales of 1 : 25,000 and 1 : 50,000, and cooperated in the compilation of general maps and synoptic maps at smaller scales. He is a supervisor of Ph.D. students and also gives selected lectures at the Faculty of Science of Masaryk University and popularizes earth sciences in the Moravian Museum in Brno.

RNDr. Mojmír Eliáš, Ph.D.

He specialized in sedimentology, sedimentary and structural geology and participated in field mapping. His major interests included the whole of the West Carpathians, flysch terrains in particular, the Carpathian Foredeep, the Nízký Jeseník Mts. and the Upper Silesian Basin. He closely cooperated with the Geological Institute of Dionýz Štúr in Bratislava, other universities and exploration companies. He was a member of the Geological Society and taught at the Faculty of Science of Charles University. He undertook numerous study trips in Europe and the United States of America and cooperated with Polish and other European geologists. He participated in a number of important international conferences and was the author of numerous papers published in Czech and foreign scientific journals. He is a co-author of geology books and a popular-science book.
