The research goal has been to determine the basic conditions and processes of the relief formation and development, and to define its general geomorphologic characteristics on the area of the Slunj karst plateau, as an example of spacious plateaus of the Dinaric karst. Since geomorphological mapping is one of the most important methods of geomorphological research, the aim of this work was detail mapping and production of a digital geomorphologic map of the area. As the basis of the given data, geomorphologic analyses and synthesis were worked out and a detailed geomorphologic map to the scale 1:50,000 was made. The dominant morphogenetic processes of the relief formation (structuralmorphologic and exogeomorphologic) were distinguished, and basic stages of the relief geomorphologic evolution were determined.

This paper analyses components of the ship system with regard to the recommendations that have impact on the safety of maritime navigation according to the evaluation of port control inspections. What the research particularly examined are recommendations (deficiencies), i.e. cases when ships are not allowed to proceed to sea and continue their navigation. The results of the comparative and SWOT analyses are presented, as well as the functional dependence (tendency) of not complying with specific ship components concerning the age of the ship. Both the results of the research and the performed analyses show that the majority of recommendations concern the emergency systems, i.e. the safety of navigation and rescue appliances, while the least number of recommendations has been recorded in the training and drills of the crew for emergency situations. What has also been established is that by a better on-board training of the crew and better education of seafarers it is possible to reduce the number of recommendations (deficiencies). The age of the ship, which has also been found to contribute to the increasing number of recommendations (deficiencies), constitutes the objective reason for this due to the current unsatisfactory financial situation in the market. © 2015 Brodarski Institute.

This paper deals with the spatial density of dolines in the Croatian territory covered by karst. The purpose of this paper is to calculate the spatial density of dolines and show a correlation between calculated doline density values and certain geomorphological and geological factors of their origin and development. Therefore, it has been necessary to calculate the spatial density of dolines applying unique GIS methods of data collection and analysis to the entire study area. Doline density per unit area has been calculated based on the mapped doline bottom. 1:25,000 scale digital cartographic models have been used to determine the doline bottom. The given data have been used to calculate the spatial density of dolines applying a simple kernel method to an area of one square kilometre. The analysis of spatial differences in doline density has revealed that certain connections exist between doline development and relief morphometric parameters as well as lithological and structural terrain features.
