Abstract

The Engineering Geology area studies the physical geography and geomorphology of the “Environment system”. In particular, Engineering Geology deals with the defense of the soil, territory and civil protection, with attention to landslides, hydrogeology, the study of underground water circulation, the geological-technical survey, geological exploration of the subsoil and thematic cartography, geological and hydrogeological risk; interpretation of aerial photos and satellite images, topographical analysis on digital models of the survey, study of climate changes and their influence on erosion, sedimentation and pedogenesis processes, the study of geothermal systems, the analysis of geological systems related to hydrocarbons and minerals. Research methods include field and laboratory experiments and appropriate numerical modeling software is often used. In conclusion, the aim of this paper should be a review of all engineering geology tematics analysed and studied by Applied Geology Group in Politecnico di Torino.
