Specific geological and geographical conditions in Belorussia, Ukraine, Moldova, Volga River basin, Central Asia and Kazakhstan for application of the penetration logging technique are discussed. The practical application of penetration logging methods in engineering geological and hydrogeological mapping for irrigation and drainage projects in the Alma-Ata (Kazakhstan), Kizil-Orda (Uzbekistan), Saratov (Russia), Kiev (Ukraine), Neman River (Belorussia) regions is analysed. The results of geoengineering studies of glacial sediments in the Moscow region and bottom sediments in the Black sea off-shore area are presented (Ferronsky, Penetration logging methods for engineering geological investigation, 1969; Ferronsky and Gryaznov, Penetration logging, 1979).
