### Abstract

We study geometric properties of linear strata of uni-singular curves. We resolve the singularities of closures of the strata and represent the resolutions as projective bundles. This enables us to study their geometry. In particular we calculate the Picard groups of the strata and the intersection rings of the closures of the strata. The rational equivalence classes of some geometric cycles on the strata are calculated. As an application we give an example when the proper stratum is not affine. As an auxiliary problem we discuss the collision of two singular points, restrictions on possible resulting singularity types and solve the collision problem in several cases. Then we present some cases of enumeration of
