Abstract

The results of a large-scale engineering geological zoning of Moscow territory are given. The work was carried out according to the order of the Moscow Government “On the Compilation of Thematic Geological Large-Scale Maps of Moscow Territory.” The map of engineering geological zoning is based on the integration of data on the structural-geodynamic, geomorphologic, and geological structure, hydrogeological conditions, and the occurrence of hazardous natural and human-induced processes and phenomena. The basic principle of map compilation was the successive typological division of the territory into four taxonomic levels with the use of an index method of denotation of taxa with different ranks.
