Summary

Geological cycle, endogenous and exogenous geological processes. Stratigraphy – sedimentary structures. Genesis of the Earth, plate tectonics. Magmatism. Magmatic bodies classification. Metamorphosis – metamorphic phacies. Strain analysis – deformation. Principles of strain and dynamic analysis. Geological compass – geometric analysis and statistical analysis of structure data. Structure mapping – basic procedures. Construction of geological maps and cross-sections. Exogenous dynamic of the Earth, weathering, slope processes, water and its role in geological processes.
