4th Applied Shallow Marine Geophysics Conference


会议名称:4th Applied Shallow Marine Geophysics Conference









Following the successful conferences in Athens (2014), Barcelona (2016) and Porto (2018), professionals from academia, research institutes, service and engineering companies, operators and offshore energy companies will reconvene in Belgrade 30 August - 3 September 2020,to further present and discuss the state-of-the-art in characterizing the shallow subsurface in aquatic settings (rivers, lakes, fjords, coastal systems, offshore and deep offshore).

The safe assessment of site conditions for all types of marine installations and infrastructure requires a detailed understanding of the shallow subsurface and the changes therein over the lifetime of the areas of interest. This essential objective can only be achieved through the extensive use of complementary geophysical methods and monitoring approaches, as well as a proper, data-driven integration of geotechnical, geomechanical, metocean and geophysical data and models.

The 4th conference will cover the widest range of topics of applied high-resolution geophysics in all types of aquatic settings, with specific focus on:

Characterization and monitoring in shallow water environments, lakes, river beds and coastal areas for engineering (bridges, tunnels, harbour installations,dredging) and specific processes assessment (liquefaction, excavations, erosion) and their mitigation;

Geophysical investigations for offshore wind energy and Oil & Gas activities;

Environmental geophysics (e.g., pollution of sewage,nuclear waste deposits, identifying contaminants,archaeology);

Research into the effects of global warming/climate change in vulnerable areas (e.g., polar regions, coastal areas);

Advances in integration and very-high-resolution inversion for establishing data-driven ground models and uncertainty assessment;

Novel data acquisitions, data processing and data analysis techniques (multi-method approaches, beyond P-wave reflection for the marine environment; Machine Learning);

Monitoring and risk mitigation assessment (including CO2 Capture and Storage activities);

International guidelines and standards;

Case studies.
