Abstract (in english)
   Formation and tectonic evolution of the Upper Silesian Coal Basin was reconstructed on the base of detailed morphotectonic analysis, sedimentological and palaeogeographical study. Geodynamic position of the Upper Carboniferous coal basin is discussed as well as international basin - inland depression of the Brunovistulicum Massif between the East Sudeted and west margin of the Malopolska Massif. Permian Slawków Trough makes a form of a half-graben type pull-apart basin along Krzeszowice-Myszków-Lubliniec volcanic ridge. Late Variscan evolution of the Upper Silesian Coal Basin lead to cennection of the Moravian-Silesian Fold Zone and Cracow Fold Zone through the Permian Slawków Trough with bimodal volcanism into the Moravian-Upper Silesian-Cracovian periphery Variscan orogeny around margins of the Brunovistulicum, most of them in the Uralian phase. In relation to Mesozoic cover, the Upper Silesian Coal Basin area consists of epi-Palaeozoic platform basement with three peneplene surfaces
   The Silesian-Cracow Monocline was created during the Laramide movements. During the Tertiary time the Middle-European Platform was deeply eroded and later incorporated into the Silesian part of the Carpathian Foredeep. The southern part of the Coal Basin is bent under Carpathians up to 5-6 km. The results of researches on the geodynamics of the Upper Silesian Coal Basin are important for characteristic of the stress field nature evolution. The investigation of the young morphostructures with the methods of geomorphologic-tectonic analysis and seismological observation were the important contribution to the studies on the mining seismicity of the Upper Silesian Coal Basin area
