Moscow University Geology Bulletin Aims and scope Submit manuscript


Ecological-geological conditions are considered to be an environment created by a set of contemporary morphologically expressed geological factors that influence specific features of the functioning of the biota, including human beings, within the framework of the ecological-geological system. The paper discusses factors (components) of ecological-geological conditions, factors of the formation of ecological-geological conditions, and the role of anthropogenic (technogenic) impacts in the transformation of ecological-geological conditions.
