Integrating new and emergent multi-scale measurements of physical and chemical properties in subsurface drilling and coring: from the micro- to the macro-scale (co-organized)
|Co-Conveners: Nicolas Waldmann , Mimonitu Opuwari|
Upscaling results obtained in field experiments to Earth crust or downscaling the application of geophysical techniques to a laboratory, remains an ongoing challenge in Earth Sciences. Down-hole and down-core rock physic measurements coupled by high resolution geochemical analyses can provide great insight into better understanding the stratigraphy, sedimentary environments, rock properties and geological processes of the subsurface. Such an approach has the great benefit of integrating different disciplines and approaches in a holistic and comprehensive manner while aiming to apply new theories and techniques.
The aim of this session is to bring together scientists working in different disciplines dealing with subsurface drilling and coring projects (such as IODP and ICDP) and aim to couple petrophysics and geochemistry with laboratory/field experiments as a primordial step to model small-scale basin processes to large-scale Earth phenomena. We are particularly interested in discussing broad spectrum of innovative techniques and methods in the development of continental to marine sediments. Case studies of integration of Geology and Engineering will also be considered.
