Geotechnological and mining research are closely related to observations of the phenomena in geospace. Measurements are basic for observations, and correct interpretation is highly reflected in the quality of the data obtained. Designing and implementation of measurements represent fundamentals of monitoring in geosciences and geophysical research. While observation methods are different, they have something in common, i.e. each measurement must be verifiable and reproducible. All measured data are subject to certain errors that can be determined by analysing the quality of the data measured. Thus, topics on measurement monitoring in geosciences will enable that students get acquainted with practical data acquisition, with implementation of field measurements such as measurements of displacement of single points on surface and in underground spaces, measurements for determining geological structure and properties of rocks, e.g. seismic, geoelectric, electromagnetic, magnetometric, gravimetric, geotechnical and core-boring measurements in drilled wells, and measurements to determine hydrodynamic and fluidodynamic properties of layers of rock reservoirs for oil and gas and aquifers for geothermal and underground water. The objective is to acquire knowledge in the topics listed above with emphasis on implementation of quality measurement analysis before being further processed.
