In May 2010 the CSPG, CSEG and CWLS will join with GAC, MAC, IAH-CNC, CCPG and CFES to bring GeoCanada, a once-in-a-decade event, to Calgary. This valuable earth science Convention will boast an expanded technical program, extended Exhibit Floor and plenty of networking opportunities for the more than 4,500 expected attendees.
Geophysics related Sessions:
Advances in Seismic Acquisition
This session may include any topic to do with onshore seismic acquisition (offshore is a separate session) including, but not limited to; land access, environmental aspects, line clearance and reclamation, geomatics, community relations, sources, receivers and case histories.
Seismic Interpretation and Case Studies
Innovative Groundwater Exploration and Discovery Methods
Groundwater exploration and discovery methods have seen many advances in the past decade, particularly in the application of downhole, airborne, and space-based remote sensing methods as well as computer modelling and scientific visualization. But sound geological mapping, rigorous field observations and aquifer testing are still required to turn conceptual ideas into wells. This session invites papers highlighting innovative geological, geochemical and geophysical methods to explore for groundwater or to map aquifers.
Geophysical Exploration 1: Gravity, Magnetics, MTEM, Remote Sensing
Potential Fields, EM, MT, Remote Sensing Papers are invited which describe the application of gravity, magnetics, electro-magnetics, magneto-tellurics and remote sensing to mining and petroleum exploration and exploitation. The topics will be broken down into land, marine, airborne and satellite techniques.
Geophysical Exploration 2: Lidar, Sonar, Hi-Res Seismic
Signal Processing and Algorithms
Signal processing is at the very heart of seismic analysis. This session welcomes theoretical submissions discussing new or existing algorithms, but also presentations featuring applications of these algorithms in the seismic process. It is hoped that the final programme will feature a combination of the theoretical and the practical.
Subsurface Imaging and Structure
How do we unlock the secrets of the Earth? Knowledge of the Earth’s structure, whether the near subsurface or the core, is essential to geoscientists. This “subsurface imaging and structure” session will present the latest techniques employed to further our knowledge of the structure and geological history of our planet.
