This field excursion covers various aspects of geology in urban areas and focuses on applications of geology in
construction of settlements and interactions between the geology and the life in an urban environments.
Interdisciplinarity will be emphasized and will cover links to civil engineering and construction activities, stone
decay, mineral resources and raw materials, energy flows, management of solid and liquid wastes in cities,
formation of new geomaterials, urban mining and (geo)material recycyling.
