I graduated in 2007 in the MSc. study program Physical Geography and Geoecology at the Faculty of Science, University of Ostrava (2007). Shortly after (2009), I passed the state rigorous exam (RNDr.) in the same field of study and in 2012 I defended my Ph.D. thesis on “Use of electrical resistivity tomography in the research of mountain relief”.

Since June 2012 I have been working at the IRSM CAS, starting as a postdoc at the Dpt. of Engineering Geology, afterwards (from 2015) as a researcher at a newly established Dept. of Neotectonics and Termochronology where I act also as the deputy head.

Since 2011 I have also been working (part-time) as a researcher (2011 - 2017) and later (since 2018) as an assistant professor (lecturer) at the Institute of Hydrogeology, Engineering Geology and Applied Geophysics at the Faculty of Science, Charles University, Prague where I completed Ph.D. in Applied Geology with the focus on geophysical applications by defending the Ph.D. dissertation on "Joint interpretations of geophysical measurements as the key to understand landscape evolution" in March 2022.

As concerns my professional scope, I am interested namely in geomorphology, structure geology, dynamic processes and applied geology (near surface geophysics and engineering geology). Within my research activities, I do co-operate with numerous Czech geoscience institutions (Charles University, Czech Geological Survey, Geophysical Institute CAS, University of Ostrava or the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen) as well as with foreign partners (University of Wroclaw, Polish Academy of Sciences, San Diego State University or Oregon State University).

Besides the domestic research, my activities include also co-operation within the international research projects, e.g. in Slovakia, Poland, Germany, Norway (Svalbard), Ukraine (Krym - I have never been to Russia!!!), Iraq (Kurdistan), India (Kashmir), Philippines, California…

My publication activity is represented by numerous scientific papers and research reports, analyses and expert’s opinions. My ORCID is 0000-0002-5159-7703.

I have also rich experience with a range of projects oriented on applied research in collaboration with private companies (Geotest a.s., G Impuls Praha, Energoprůzkum Praha, Dekonta, CEZ Group etc.) and, also, with state authorities (e.g. SÚRAO – Czech Radioactive Waste Repository Authority, ŘSD - Czech Road and Motorway Directorate, Czech Ministry of Transport, Criminal Police and Investigation Service, Nature Conservation Agency etc.).

At the Charles University, Faculty of Science (Prague), I participate in lecturing and leading of practicals (e.g. Geoelectrics – practicals, Geoelectrical survey, Field Course of Applied Geophysics, Seminar of Applied Geophysics, etc.) at the Inst. of Hydrogeology, Engineering Geology and Applied Geophysics and at the Dpt. of Physical Geography and Geoecology (Geomorphological Research Methods). I am also supervising theses at both departments. Furthermore, I was also lectured students (in Applied Geophysics) at my alma mater, University of Ostrava, in years 2012 – 2019.

I am a member of following professional associations: EAGE (European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers), ČAG (Czech Association of Geomorphologist, since 2020 as a vice-chairman), ČAAG (Czech Associations of Geophysicists) and IAEG (International Association for Engineering Geology and the Environment).

Poutavě sepsaná historie objevování dna Hranické propasti vyšla v únorovém čísle české mutace populárně-naučného časopisu National Geographic, v rubrice "česká mozaika".

Články / Knihy

Hranickou propast najdeme u Hranic na Moravě 35 km východně od Olomouce. Není možná tak populární jako známá Macocha v Moravském krasu, přesto její věhlas v posledních letech daleko přesáhl hranice České republiky. Letos publikované výsledky geofyzikálního výzkumu ukazují, že jí titul nejhlubší zatopené jeskyně světa patří právem.

Hranická propast na severní Moravě je místem, které láká geology a speleology již dlouhou dobu. Na průzkumu tohoto jeskynního systému, který je z velké části zatopen vodou, se podílela i řada geologů z odborníků naší fakulty.

Hranická propast je nejhlubší známá sladkovodní jeskyně na Zemi. Před čtyřmi lety se do ní ponořil tým vedený polským specialistou Krzysztofem Starnawským. Ten potvrdil, že její hloubka je nejméně 404 metrů. Skutečná velikost propasti ale byla neznámou. Nyní tým českých vědců z Akademie věd (Geofyzikální ústav AV ČR, Ústav hydrogeologie, inženýrské geologie a užité geofyziky
PřF UK Praha, Ústav struktury a mechaniky hornin AV ČR) přišel s novým výzkumem, který na základě geofyzikálních testů ukázal, že tento unikátní jeskynní systém má ve skutečnosti hloubku kolem jednoho kilometru.
Jde ale "pouze" o expertní odhad, mohlo by to být dokonce ještě víc. Vědci o tom informovali odbornou veřejnost v časopise Journal of Geophysical Research: Earth Surface.

For decades, spelunkers have flocked to the flooded caverns of the Czech Republic’s Hranice Abyss, which stretches farther below ground than any other freshwater cave system. Now, a scientific campaign to the cave has revealed it is 1 kilometer deep, more than twice as deep as previously thought. The researchers also say the abyss formed as groundwater seeped down from the surface, not as water percolated up, as previously believed—a finding that could call into question the origin of other deep caves.
Now, scientists have revealed a clearer picture using a combination of geophysical techniques.
Klanica and his colleagues also found evidence of an ancient groundwater drainage system in the limestone, suggesting a new, aboveground origin for the abyss.
The resulting picture revealed a system of deep, trenchlike caverns—some filled with sediment—that had been carved from the limestone, Surprisingly, these sediment-covered trenches extend to about 1 kilometer below the surface—far deeper than previous estimates, the team reported this month in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Earth Surface.
