Part of the Innovation and Discovery in Russian Science and Engineering book series (IDRSE)


In the continuation of the Moscow Project of geological mapping, the following works are carried out: at the mid-scale level – calculation of the network and the zone of influence of surface runoff, analysis of the stability of slopes, and the construction of an integrated map of engineering geological zoning taking into account the influence of surface runoff – and on a large scale, analysis of the distribution of tributaries and the growth of accumulation zones for the modern and buried (the roof of quaternary sediments) relief.
