18th International Association for Mathematical Geosciences Conference

Wednesday, September 6, 2017

18th International Association for Mathematical Geosciences Conference

On behalf of the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences (IAMG), we invite you to participate in our 18th Annual Conference, IAMG2017. The conference will be held in the historic port city of Fremantle in Western Australia, 2-9 September 2017.

The aim of the conference is to promote the advancement of mathematics, statistics and informatics in the geosciences. Areas of geoscience application include studies of the Earth, its natural resources and the environment.

IAMG2017 will provide a venue for the presentation of new research in the form of oral and poster presentations at the Esplanade Hotel. We invite researchers to submit abstracts via our abstract submission portal. We also welcome proposals for short courses and workshops associated with the conference. The IAMG2017 Scientific Committee, composed of distinguished experts, will ensure an outstanding technical level for the presentations at the conference. There will be exhibition space available for geoscience related industries to showcase recent technological developments, including software. The economy of Western Australia relies heavily on its mineral and energy resources and we particularly urge related industries to participate in this conference and support research.

EAGE Education Tour - Gravity and Magnetic Methods for Oil & Gas and Mineral Exploration and Production

Thursday, August 25, 2016



ASEG-PESA-AIG 2016 conference Workshop


Dr. Yaoguo Li, Colorado School of Mines - Denver, USA


Grosvenor Hotel Adelaide

Target Audience

We anticipate the geoscientists in the following areas will benefit from the course:

  • Potential-field methods
  • Mineral exploration interpretation
  • Integrate
  • Reservoir monitoring
  • Groundwater hydrology


EAGE member $120, non-member $240

Gravity and magnetic data are among the oldest geophysical data acquired for the purpose of resource exploration and exploitation. They currently also have the widest areal coverage on the Earth, span a great range of scales, and play important roles in mineral, energy, and groundwater arenas. The interpretation methods have evolved from data map-based visual inspection, various map enhancements, and depth estimation, to quantitative interpretations based on inversions and integrated modeling. In particular, 3D inversion techniques have emerged as a major component in this evolution. The availability of 3D inversion techniques has advanced potential-field interpretation from 'anomaly bump hunting' to 3D imaging of the subsurface by reconstructing the distribution of density or magnetic properties in various geological units and, thereby, have shifted interpretations from the data domain to the model domain. Similarly, inversion techniques are also poised to make major contributions to integrated modeling and interpretation, as well as to differentiating and characterizing geology, geological processes, and reservoir dynamics. This course will focus on the methodology, numerical computation, solution strategy, and applications of 3D physical property inversions of gravity and magnetic data sets. The course is designed to have two tracks in order to meet the different needs of EAGE community in mineral exploration and in oil & gas exploration and production. We achieve this by dividing the course into two parts, and cover the methodologies common in potential-field methods in Part-I and discuss tools and applications specific to mineral exploration or oil & gas reservoir monitoring in Part-II.
