Track 08: Structural Geology
Structural Geology is the study of the three-dimensional gathering of rock units concerning their deformational histories. Architecture Geology to use measurements of present-day rock geometries to uncover information about the history of deformation (strain) within the rocks, and ultimately, to know the strain field that resulted within the observed strain and geometries. The study of geologic structures has been of prime importance in geology, both geology, and geology. Crease and faulted rock strata commonly form traps that accumulate and concentrate fluids like petroleum and gas.
Structural Geology may be a critical part of Engineering Geology, which cares about the physical and machine-like properties of natural rocks. Structural Geology works to seek out the damage present within the rocks like folds, foliations, and joints are internal weaknesses of rocks which may affect the stability of human-engineered structures like dams, road cuts, open-pit mines, and underground mines or road tunnels. Geotechnical risk, including earthquake risk, can only be investigated by inspecting a mix of Structural Geology and geomorphology.

Track 13: Soil Preservation
Soil Prevention is all about the prevention of soil loss from erosion due to chemicals present in soil and contamination. A sequel to deforestation is usually the large scale of erosion, loss of soil nutrients and sometimes total desertification.
Soil Erosion removes the topsoil that is necessary for organic matter, nutrients, micro-organisms that are required for plants to grow and shine. Soil Conservation is one such step that protects the soil from being washed away. The soil then lands up in aquatic resources bringing in pesticides and fertilizers used on agricultural land. Healthy soil is important for plants to grow and flourish. Taking the desired steps to conserve the soil as a neighbourhood of an environmentally friendly lifestyle. Soil conservation is also an important a neighbourhood of sustainable agriculture and food production since it entails keeping soil from becoming a pollutant within the surface waters, and its ability to sieve and filter pollutants where we are going to improve the assembly.

Track 14: Gas Reservoirs
Gas Reservoir in geology and gas production, a gift cargo deck, characteristically a folded rock formation like an anticline, that traps and holds gas like petroleum. Petroleum reservoirs are of two types they are conventional and unconventional reservoirs. Within the case of conventional reservoirs, this hydrocarbon, like petroleum or gas, are trapped by overlying rock formations with lower permeability. Reservoirs are found using the hydrocarbon exploration method. Gas reservoir, in geology and gas production, a gift stage area, characteristically a folded rock formation like an anticline that traps and holds the gas and it's to be capped by an impervious rock so on make an efficient seal that forestalls the gas from escaping upward or laterally.

Track 15: Volcanology & Plate tectonics
A Volcano is a gap within the crust that permits molten rock from the mantle to effuse onto the surface as lava. Volcanoes also emit vast amounts of gas, primarily CO2, water vapour, and sulphur dioxide. The solid particles present in the atmosphere will remain for years. Most of the seismicity on the earth occurs at plate boundaries, although intra-plate seismicity can occur also when stresses build up within the plate. Volcanism is related to two of the plate boundaries types: divergent and convergent margins. Where two plates containing continental crust at their margins collide, there is little or no volcanism (such as at the Himalaya). Occasionally, plate boundaries where plates are mostly sliding by one another can experience small amounts of volcanism also if there is a component of extension across this boundary. Mauna Loa and Kilauea in Hawaii are the classic samples of intraplate volcanoes. Such volcanoes also can be seismically active, particularly when volcanic structures are built up rapidly. The crust must answer the additional load and relieves this stress through tectonic activity.
