Structural Geology is that the study of the three-dimensional distribution of rock units with regard to their alteration histories. The first goal of structural earth science is to use measurements of current rock geometries to uncover data regarding the history of deformation (strain) within the rocks, and ultimately, to grasp the strain field that resulted within the discovered strain and geometries. This understanding of the dynamics of the strain field will be coupled to special events within the regional geological past; a standard goal is to grasp the structural evolution of a specific space with regard to regionally widespread patterns of rock deformation (e.g., mountain building, rifting) owing to geomorphology.
Use and importance of Structural Geology is the study of geological structures has been of prime importance in geology and economic geology. Collapsible and faulted rock strata ordinarily kind traps for the buildup and concentration of fluids like fossil fuel and gas. Faulted and structurally complicated Aras is notable as porous zones for hydrothermal fluids and therefore the ensuing concentration areas for base and valuable ore deposits. Veins of minerals containing varied metals ordinarily occupy faults and fractures in structurally complicated areas. Structural earth science could be an essential a part of engineering earth science that cares with the physical and mechanical properties of natural rocks. Geotechnical risk, as well as earthquake risk will solely be investigated by inspecting a mixture of structural earth science and geophysics. Additionally areas of karsts landscapes that are underlain by underground caverns and potential sinkholes or collapse options are of importance for these scientists. Additionally, areas of steep slopes are potential collapse or landslide hazards.

Scope and Importance
Structural Geology Conferences provides the scope for opportunities to learn progressed by international scientists and academicians. Structural Geology Conference offers excessive quality content to suit the diverse professional development of science and technologies. It is a perfect platform to discuss the current discoveries and developments in the field of Structural Geology.
Structural geology is a critical part of engineering geology, which is concerned with the physical and mechanical properties of natural rocks. Structural fabrics and defects such as faults, folds, foliations and joints are internal weaknesses of rocks which may affect the stability of human engineered structures such as dams, road cuts, open pit mines and underground mines or road tunnels. Geotechnical risk, including earthquake risk can only be investigated by inspecting a combination of structural geology and geomorphology. In addition areas of karst landscapes which are underlain by underground caverns and potential sinkholes or collapse features are of importance for these scientists. In addition, areas of steep slopes are potential collapse or landslide hazards. Environmental geologists and hydro geologists or hydrologists need to understand structural geology because structures are sites of groundwater flow and penetration, which may affect, for instance, seepage of toxic substances from waste dumps, or seepage of salty water into aquifers. Plate tectonics is a theory developed during the 1960s which describes the movement of continents by way of the separation and collision of crustal plates. It is in a sense structural geology on a planet scale, and is used throughout structural geology as a framework to analyze and understand global, regional, and local scale features.
As per the National Geological and Geophysical Data Preservation Program, Survey for funding opportunities is done among different states of USA. From this survey report the total funding amount is $625,993.29. According to MICAD (Ministry of International Cooperation and Development), in 2013 total aid from the UAE amounted to US$5.89 billion (Dh21.63 billion). Much of this funding comes under the definition of Official Development Assistance (ODA) as stipulated by the Development Assistance Committee of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD DAC). Net ODA in 2013 was estimated at US$5.42 billion, moving the UAE into first place globally in terms of development assistance as a percentage of gross national income (GNI). In other words, the UAE provided 1.33% of its GNI as ODA in 2013, exceeding the UN target of 0.7% for donor countries.
