Department of Engineering Geology analyse and interpret the dangerous geodynamical phenomena and processes, which affect the behaviour, development and stability of the rock environment in their natural deposition in the Earth’s crust. These phenomena are linked with exogenous processes, such as slope deformations and weathering, as well as endogenous processes, such as tectonics, fault movements and gas emanations. Special attention is paid to the development of reliable and accurate methods of monitoring of slope and tectonic processes and predicting their development and occurrence in space and time.
