leto

[CZ]

Viklany jsou velké zaoblené kameny nacházející se samostatne na loukách ci v lesích a pouze svou malou cástí leží na skalním podloží. Nejznámejším Ceským viklanem je viklan ležící u jihovýchodního okraje obce Kadov a odtud dostal název Kadovský viklan. Balvan je na 1 metr vysoké skalce. V obvodu viklan merí více jak 11 metru a jeho váha ciní kolem 30 tun. V roce 1985 byl viklan vyhlášen prírodní památkou, ale pozornost vedcu upoutával již v 19. století. Nejstarší záznamy o viklanu jsou z roku 1856 a v tomto období také vzniklo pojmenování balvanu jako viklan. Nejenom vedce pritahoval tento balvan, ale také kameníky, kterí do nej vytesaly prohlubne pro usazení klínu, pomocí kterých by po té kámen rozbili. Zásluhou okresního hejtmanství byl kámen uchránen pred rozbitím. V roce 1893 byl kámen posunut skupinou nadšencu ze své puvodní polohy o 1,5 metru. Na puvodní místo byl kámen vrácen v roce 1983 za prispení ing. Pavla Pavla, který je známý svými studiemi o pohybu soch na Velikonocních ostrovech. Z obce Kadov byla kolem viklanu vyznacena naucná stezka Kadovský viklan. K viklanu vede také znacená turistická trasa.

Viklan je obly skalni blok nebo balvan spocivajici nepatrnou plochou na podlozi. Za viklany se obvykle povazuji utvary v poloze ´´in situ´´, tj. vznikle na tom miste, kde se dnes nachazeji. Pokud skalni blok spociva nekolika malymi plochami na podlozi, hovorime o pseudoviklanech. Vyvoj je nejcasteji vysvetlovan procesy selektivniho zvetravani a odnosu hornin. V aridnim prostredi je vznik vysvetlovan korazni cinnosti vetru a pisku.

Vyskytuji se prevazne v oblastech tvorenymi zulami, vzacneji v piskovcich. Viklany patri k napadnym a pomerne vzacnym mikro a mezoformam reliefu.

Balance boulder is round rocks or stone of a tiny area of the subsoil. The rocking stone formations are normally considered in a position''in situ'', resulting in the place where is now located. If rocks consists of several small areas in the subsoil, it's the pseudo-balance boulders. Development is mostly explained by processes of selective weathering and surface degradation rocks. In arid environment is illustrated by the emergence of erosional activity of wind and sand.

They are mainly in areas consisting of granite, finer in the sandstone. Balance boulders belongs to the prominent and relatively rare micro and mezoform relief.
