Professor Jaromír Korčák's Centenary

Ivan Bičík, Václav Gardavský, Martin Hampl

Professor Jaromír Korčák, who undoubtedly belonged among the most outstanding Czech geographers, was born on July 12, 1895 - exactly 100 years ago. In his work he covered unusually broad array of topics. Many of them are suprisingly "modern" even today: let us mention at least Korčák's population and settlement studies - the main focus of his scientific interest. Jaromír Korčák became deeply involved also with the issue of regional regularity in the distribution of geographical phenomena. There is no doubt that Korčák's works can be labelled as classical and highly topical ones. First three articles of this volume are devoted to Professor Korčák's centenary.
