Applied geology with specializations of geology of mineral deposits, engineering geology, hydrogeology, applied geophysics, environmental geology and geochemistry is focused on study and the use of the rock environment and its protection. ENGINEERING GEOLOGY Engineering geology applies the geological knowledge in design and construction in all branches of civil engineering, in mining and in urban planning. It is an interdisciplinary field in between the science and technology. Using technical or rather mathematical methods, the knowledge gained by geology is applied in analyzing geodynamic processes and the interaction between the rock and civil engineering structures. HYDROGEOLOGY Hydrogeology is a scientific field engaged in groundwaters, their origin, conditions of incidence, laws of movement, their regimes, physical and chemical properties, their interaction with rocks, surface water and atmosphere. Hydrogeology ranges among applied geological branches and has closest relation to engineering geology. Modern hydrogeology has the character of a cross-border scientific discipline at the margin between geology, hydraulics, hydrology, chemistry and several technological disciplines (water management, civil engineering, chemical technology of water treatment etc.).A necessary method of modern hydrogeology is the development and use of mathematical models simulating natural processes as well as artificial interventions in the regime of waters both in saturated and unsaturated zones. The contents of the hydrogeology of today is moving from simple searching for water resources to the determination of optimum conditions of their utilization and protection. Hydrogeology plays an irreplacable role in the field of the protection of the living environment, in research and remediation of contaminated soils,... [-]
