The foundation of all applied research in geology is a solid understanding of the geological settings, geodynamics, and geological history of a region. This line of research encompasses the fundamentals of geology, which help determine the types of rocks and deposits found in different areas, as well as the conditions in which they were deposited and how they were modified over time by geological forces.
