The deposits are geographical areas which are, naturally, large amounts of rocks, stones, fossils, minerals, and are usually exploited for such elements.
The archaeological sites keep ruins and vestiges that are of great value for the culture of today’s society. On the other hand, geological deposits have as their main value the resources they offer, since they are exploitable for their commercialization , as is the case of minerals and oil.
The sites do not cover a single science, but several, since depending on what they keep, there will be experts in different fields who are responsible for the study of these places, such as archaeologists in archaeological sites.
Something to keep in mind about these types of places is that they are never created by the hand of man, they are always discovered places, either by the intentional search for them or by some chance situation. In many cases the deposits are underground or hidden by other materials.

Classification of Reservoirs
The deposits are of great importance and we can say that there are several types and they are the following:
- Dry gas field: hydrocarbons remain in the gaseous phase on the surface, that is, once the pressure decreases, the gas does not condense.
- Wet gas field: in this the hydrocarbons remain in the gaseous phase, but once they are on the surface they fall into the biphasic region.
- Condensed gas field: once the pressure decreases at temperature, we enter the retrograde condensation zone.
- Black oil fields: here the temperature is much lower than the critical temperature.
