|Spectral Geology in Exploration (minerals, hydrocarbon, geothermal) and Production||
An escalating range of proximal and distal sensor technologies, which are capable to produce multispectral, superspectral, hyperspectral and ultraspectral data across the visible, near-shortwave infrared to thermal infrared wavelengths, are progressively fostering the discovery, sustainable recovery and monitoring of mineral, hydrocarbon and renewable energy resources. These include field instruments, drill core profiling/imaging systems, airborne and satellite sensors.
This Symposium aims to be a vitrine for a series of positive case studies spanning the mineral, hydrocarbon and geothermal exploration and resource development applications, as well as to unveil available and emerging software and systems adjusted to these objectives.
A tangible notion in this Symposium is to prove that these instruments, data and derived mineral, hydrocarbon and geothermal information that are extracted in a “telescope approach” can provide new and key knowledge about the 2D, 3D and 4D geologic architecture and processes and further influence the choice of scientists and exploration managers. This will demand innovative principles to design and create products so that uniform information is accurate and accessible in all scales, from hand samples and drill core, up to deposit/reservoir and large continental and oceanic settings.
