Strategies and techniques of fractal geometry penetrate numerous branches of human wisdom to an expanding measure. This tendency is very remarkable within the geosciences, simply because many methods taking place in and at the Earth lead to time dependences and spatial styles that experience a fractal personality. The contributions during this quantity arose from the "3rd overseas Symposium on Fractals and Dynamic platforms in Geosciences", held at Stara Lesna, Slovakia in June, 1997. the amount includes new rules and functions of fractal geometry in such diversified branches of geoscience as engineering geology, the physics of the lithosphere (including faulting, seismicity, and fluid flow), and weather habit.
