Resolution and Revelation – Strategies for imaging and exploring the Earth’s crust and near-surface

Speaker
Assoc Prof Anya Reading, UTAS.

Date & Time
Tuesday 20 October, 11 AM

Location
Madsen Building, Level 4 – Conference Room

Abstract
Highlights of research in computational geophysics from the UTAS group in recent years are presented. In the quest for improved resolution of contrasts in structure in the Earth’s crust, the use of ambient seismic energy is outlined together with results from recent field experiments in southeast Australia. Moving up the frequency range, a novel ambient energy technique for characterising upper layers of cover for minerals targeting will also
be covered.  … Read more…

Some Surprising Ways That Plate Tectonic, Paleogeographic, and Paleoclimatic Models are Used in Resource (Hydrocarbon & Mineral) Exploration
