Introduction and history of geological mapping. Types of geological maps. Relations between rocks: structures,textures and tectonical movements, thickness of divided geological units. Recognotion of geological structures on the geological maps and on the field. Graphical presentation geological structures (profiles, diagrams). Preparations for geological mapping (fotogeology, remote sensing). Field work. Cabinet work (analysis of the rocks, geological colums and profiles, explanatory notes). Special maps.

Learning outcomes:

Understanding the role of geological mapping in solving geological problems.
Ability to read topographic base maps.
Ability to read geological data from geological maps and cross-sections.
Ability to reconstruct basic geological structures in three-dimensional space by applying a geometrical approach.
Ability to analyze geological data in order to interpret the geological structure of the subsurface.
Ability to construct graphic illustrations for visualizing geological data.
