Event Details

The AAPG Asia Pacific Region will hold a 2-day Geological Technical Workshop (GTW) in Sydney from 6-7 July 2022.   The theme is Structural Geology and our Future – The Role of Tectonic Geoscience in Energy Transition, Focusing on the Asia-Pacific Region.

The proposed sessions/sub-themes:

  1. Regional tectonic settings - Plate movements within the region; tectonic history; palaeo-tectonic reconstructions
  2. New structural and tectonic techniques: remote sensing; potential fields; digitalisation; data integration; modelling and simulation
  3. Tectonic stresses, faulting and fracture systems, including implications for CO2 sequestration and geothermal/thermodynamic energy
  4. Geomechanics and prediction of trapping configurations
  5. Fold and Thrust Belts in the Asia Pacific Region
  6. Structural controls in base metal, rare Earth, and mineral exploration
  7. Tectonic settings and structural regimes key to Hydrogen and Helium exploration
  8. Impact of tectonics on geohazard assessment and geo-engineering
  9. Structural and fracture understanding for groundwater management

ASEG members are able to register at the AAPG member rate. Additional details can be found here.
