ABSTRACT

The demands of the Romanian contemporary society are indissolubly related to the
rapid development and modernization of the infrastructure. At the same time, the
scientific research is moving towards the new directions imposed by an increasingly
dynamic society and economy. In this context, inter- and trans-disciplinarity are
required by the need to prepare new types of approaches, methods, techniques and
technologies, to be able to answer the social and environmental impact produced and
molded by the infrastructure.

The environment is a pluridimensional reality which includes both the natural and the
cultural environment, and the actual concept of “environment” has a dynamic character
that allows the knowledge, the analysis and the functioning of the protected systems
with all their complexity.

This work proposes an efficient and modern model for the protection and conservation
of geodiversity and of the cultural (especially archeological) patrimony by means of
non-destructive (geophysical, remote sensing and photogrammetry, geochemical,
seismic corroborated with informatic - GIS) techniques and methods with applicability
in geosciences and especially with direct prevalence in archeology and geology. The
presentation and promotion of these methods and techniques does not include the denial
of the use of the traditional methods, which continue to provide numerous possibilities
of identification and prognosis.

Keywords: infrastructure, geodiversity, cultural patrimony, non-destructive methods
