State Budget:

State budget theme Vh142F  “The geodiversity of the Upper and Middle Trans-Dniester region: structural and spatial analysis, estimation and use of geoheritage”, supervisors – candidate of geographical sciences., professor Ya. S. Kravchuk, candidate of geological and mineralogical sciences, professor Bohutskyi A.B. , the term of implementation-2013-2015, the number of state registration SR 0113U003048. Performers: full-times taff – 3, including 2 candidates of sciences, by-workers – 6, including 4 candidates of sciences.

During the implementation of the topic, a catalog of  objects of the geoheritage was created, their scientific and informational support, and proposals for conservation were substantiated. Planning schemes of forms of territorial protection of geodiversity (geoparks, geoscancens, documentation centers, nature monuments) and  geoconditions for the formation of the Dniester ecocorridor have been developed. Field geological and geomorphological studies in a number of regions of theUpper and Middle Pridnestry were carried out.

State budget theme VS-143 ФF “Natural and socio-geographical potentialas a factor in overcoming the recession of socio-economic development (on materials of the Carpathian region of Ukraine)”, supervisor – Doctor of geographical sciences, professor O. I. Shabliy, state registration number 0113U003049, term of implementation- 2013-2015. Performers: full-time staff – 2; by-workers- 17, among them: Doctors of Sciences – 2; Candidates of Sciences – 12; post-graduate students – 1, students- 1.

In the course of the project implementation the natural conditions of  L’viv and the region was highlighted. The influence of the natural environment and natural conditions of L’viv city and villages of  L’viv region on their development was substantiated. The level of provision of population of oblast significancecities and administrative regions of Lviv oblast with land, forest, peat and water resources, as well as lands of agricultural purpose was estimated. The geoecological analysis of administrative territorial units (on the example of Brody district of L’viv region) was conducted. Geoinformation cartographic technologies of historical and geographical research of the Western region of Ukraine were offered. The territorial transformation of the agrarian sphere in the context of food security  of L’viv oblast and overcoming there cession of socio-economic development  were highlighted. The features of air temperature dynamics in Chornohory geocomplexes in hot anti cyclonal weather and topoclimatic peculiarities of the drive line surfaces of the Chornohory mountain  range were determined. The main environmental threats to the stability of the natural complexes of the Chornohora massif of the Ukrainian Carpathians were substantiated. The parameters of evaporation in Ukrainian Rostochсchia were investigated. The historical and demographic background of the development of nostalgic tourism on the territory  of the Yavoriv military field and the tendencies of the development of shop tourisminUkraine were highlighted. The tendencies of recreational sphere development and problem so frational use of natural resources in the Carpathian region of Ukraine were noted. The historical and geographical preconditions for investmentin to the Galicia economy in the second half of the nineteen than dearly twentieth centuries and the conceptual foundations of the investment activity of the region were highlighted. The directions of reindustrialization of the economy of the downstream administrative districts (on the example of Zhydachiv district of the L’viv region) were substantiated. One of the topical problems of the present was noted – metrization of the natural environment. The achievements and problems of the project “Complex atlas of Lviv” were described.

The state budget theme VH-03P “Soil and geographical zoning of Ukraine”, supervisor- doctor of geographical sciences, professor S.P. Pozniak, the term of implementation- 2015-2016.

Prospective plan:

The development of the method of all ocating taxonomic units of soil and geographic zoning, which will include the characteristics of a comprehensive approach of soil geographic zoning and the analysis of natural-territorial components.
