Among the hypogene forces in geological dynamics an important place must be assigned to movements of the terrestrial crust.

His broad research interests include glacier and ice-sheet dynamics, subglacial conditions and the geology of Greenland and Antarctica, ice-sheet -climate interactions, climate change, and extraterrestrial ice masses.

In science:

Another interesting observation is that geology is now is a unique position to serve as a tool in the study of galactic dynamics.
The Spiral Structure of the Milky Way, Cosmic Rays, and Ice Age Epochs on Earth
An important amount of recent work, drawing on various disciplines (planetary dynamics, atmospheric physics, geology, biology etc.) refined considerably our understanding of various factors that may affect the CHZ; despite that progress, the sub ject should still be considered to be in its infancy (see.g.

The modeling of dynamic flow and transport processes in geologic porous media plays a significant role in the management of natural resources such as in oil reservoirs and water aquifers.
