GI3.5/EMRP4.19Innovative instrumentation and data processing methods in near surface geophysics (co-organized)
|Convener: Raffaele Persico | Co-Conveners: Salvatore Piro , Neil Linford|
Progressively stricter requirements in geophysical prospecting make it important to find new solutions to complex problems. Investigation and monitoring of pollution, hydrological resources, cultural heritage for example, now require technological and methodological innovations of geophysical techniques in order to properly understand the limits of the current state of art and identify where possible the most convenient strategies to overcome limitations of current approaches.
Integrated prospecting, refined data processing and hardware innovations can and should cooperate with each other in this sense. It is important that the scientific community finds a moment for considering the connection between adjacent aspects of the same problem, i.e. to achieve improved geophysical data and reliable interpretations for them.
The session “Innovative Instrumentations and data processing methods in near surface geophysics” aims to provide one such moment, where multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary competences can interact with each other, hopefully finding possible new ways to cooperate and exchange experiences.
