The investigated water samples were collected from rivers, underground waters and precipitations at different locations near
Belgrade during the period 1976–1979. By preconcentration and scintillation counting, the individually and monthly collected
samples were analyzed for3H contents. It has been found that the3H-concentration in monthly river water samples (Danube, Sava, Tisa) varies from 39 to 196 TU with a maximum in summer, between
0–192 TU in the underground water depending on the sampling depth and distance from river Sava and Danube, while values of
26 to 153 TU have been detected in the monthly precipitation samples attaining a maximum during the break-through of arctic
and polar continental air masses. The results were used to calculate the3H quantity deposited per m2 (Bq/m2) of surface, due to precipitations and the flow per second (Bq/s) in the investigated locations in rivers. The interrelation
between rivers, underground waters and precipitations is discussed. The3H-distributions obtained are correlated with the water level in rivers and with the precipitation quantities and are interpreted
in light of the relevant meteorological parameters and other related phenomena.

The contribution contains of the geophysical data and their interpretation. Interpretation of geophysical fields in compliance with the geological structure and geodynamics EMO far region contributes significantly to development of seismo-tectonic model. The model represents the correlation between seismic activity and geological-tectonic setting. The achieved seismo-tectonic model in fact reasons all recorded seismic events in the area and points out to a seismic activity decrease towards the Danube Basin center, thereof, there being situated the EMO locality.

Trace elements in some continental water systems in Yugoslavia have been investigated by IAA. The results of the determination
of trace elements are presented in this paper on the basis of the theory of concentration parameters (Cx) for the components of the rivers (dissolved materials in water, suspended and bed materials, plankton, benthos, algae, crustacea
and fishes) lakes, swamps and in the soils. The investigated water system were rivers Danube, Sava, Tisa and V. Morava, lakes
of Skadar, Ohrid, Dorjan, Bor, the Melenci Swamp and the soils from different regions of the Danube basin. This paper presents
a short survey of our investigation of some continental water system in Yugoslavia by IAA.
The place of the Svodín type anthropomorphic vessels in the Neolithic of the Danube Basin
. The author carried out the typological analysis of the Neolithic and Early Copper Age anthropomorphic vessels of the Danube Basin on 70 complete or reconstructed items recovered from 53 sites and found analogues as far as Anatolia. He also determined the place of the “Svodín type” anthropomorphic vessels in the large group of anthropomorphic vessels of Central and Southeast Europe. A so-called threepartite “Schultergefäß” furnished with human traits (arms/hands, plastic breasts and plastic or painted facial parts) can be regarded as the archetype of the Svodín (Szőgyén, Slovakia) type anthropomorphic vessels. The vessels and the fragments that can be grouped in the type have been found on the territories of SW Slovakia and Lower Austria, at Aszód and Csabdi and also in larger numbers at a few sites of the Southern Transdanubian Lengyel culture, especially at Györe.The anthropomorphic vessels from Central and Southeast Europe entered into the database can morphologically be grouped into three forms (Gattung), eight series (Serien), 23 morphological groups and 42 versions. Basically, standing (72.3 %), sitting/enthroned (22.3 %) and hollow-pedestalled (5.2 %) vessel shapes can be differentiated. According to the analyses, vessel shapes that appeared only in the early or the middle or the late phase or only in the Aeneolithic and transitional shapes can be differentiated. The author also examines the meaning of the discussed anthropomorphic vessels, to what purpose they were made, based first of all on the finding circumstances.All the “Svodín-type” anthropomorphic vessels characteristic of the eastern occupation zone of the late Neolithic Lengyel culture came from the early phase of the culture. It could be observed that the figural plastic representations of the Lengyel culture show many similar traits to those of the Tisza culture in the Alföld, which is not surprising since the two cultures even shared a few sites on the territory of Northern Hungary.Regarding the anthropomorphic vessels, regional divergences can be discovered in the early Neolithic of Southeast Europe, which divergences increased in the subsequent periods and differences appeared between cultures and also between the individual sites.
Towards the end of his life Jules Verne wrote four novels that involve the Danube basin:Mathias Sandorf (1885),Le château des Carpathes (1892),Le secret de Wilhelm Storitz (1910), andLe beau Danube jaune (written in 1901; first published 1988). Neither the Danube itself, nor a new preoccupation with women or death can be said
to link all four of them. Alternatively, one may consider these texts as parts of an unintended “roman du fleuve,” a cycle
ofFamilienromane in Freud’s sense, in which the plot is based on conflicts among family members. Seen this way, Verne’s narrators portray
clashes among siblings in the “Danubian family,” sympathizing now with this now with that nation. The main characters of these
novels are not, however, defined by their ethnic affiliations.
Le pilote du Danube (1908), a radically revised version ofLe beau Danube jaune by Verne’s son Jules, may be linked to Péter Esterházy’s work, both for being mentioned inHahn-Hahn grófnő pillantása — lefelé a Dunán (1991) and for representing a rewriting of the father.
