Abstract—The engineering geological heterogeneity of the Earth’s lithosphere is studied at different hierarchic
levels. Logical and factual classifications of engineering geological structures are presented. Differences
between them are related to inconsistency of separate regional and zonal geological factors or to the impossi-
bility of separate combinations of neotectonic and geological climatic structures.
