Sub 20 - Inaugural Deep Earth Imaging Conference

Wednesday, February 12, 2020
0800
1700

CSIRO’s Deep Earth Imaging Future Science Platform is organising an interdisciplinary subsurface conference around the themes of imaging, conceptualisation and prediction of water, energy and mineral resources. Over two days, we will focus on the science required, developed and deployed by academia, industry and government to prospect today for the resources that will underpin our low energy future. The conference will include a combination of keynotes, panel discussions, presentations and networking opportunities. Particular emphasis will be placed on the next generation of techniques to acquire knowledge about the subsurface; by for example combining machine learning, forward modelling, inverse theory and predictive applications.

Registration now open.

Wednesday 12 - Thursday 13 Feb 2020

Optus Stadium, Perth

333 Victoria Park Dr, Burswood WA

 

 

The Deep Earth Imaging Future Science Platform is holding its inaugural conference that will focus on the scientific advancements required to progress the understanding of the systems behind the formation of water, mineral and energy resources. To unlock challenging-to-recover resources situated at depth requires improving the predictive power of geoscience tools to enable the capture and integration of subsurface, deep earth information for resource modelling. Key to this is to develop knowledge through inference from often incomplete, sparse, indirect and irregularly distributed measurements of the subsurface. The conference will serve as a platform to showcase current developments and to identify challenges and opportunities.

The Three Pillars

Imaging – An ever-increasing volume of geo-data drives the development of novel techniques that are able to produce snapshots of resource systems. Future breakthroughs will be based on advances in sensor networks and computational techniques to extract the maximum amount of information from our observations.

Conceptualisation – Our understanding of mineral, energy and ground water systems only increases when we combine images of the subsurface with geological knowledge. Confidence in predictions will increase if they are underpinned by formal interpretations of images and transparent conceptualisations of geological processes.

Prediction – Robust predictions are the key to de-risking exploration in geological complex settings and managing water and hydrocarbon resources. Improving prediction will require advancing inference capabilities so we can turn images and conceptualisations into insight and understanding.

Program highlights

Sessions dedicated to imaging, conceptualisation and prediction with keynote presentations that identify the challenges and opportunities in these spaces and knowledge development through inference.

Panel discussions by experts in industry, government and academy focused on the roles of imaging, conceptualisation and prediction, and the synergies between these activities.

A stream focused on the relevance and value of imaging, conceptualisation and prediction in the social license to operate context.

An introduction to the current and planned research initiatives by government and academia to aid prospecting for the resources that will underpin a low energy future.

 

Prizes for:

Best presentation by an early career researcher (less than 3 years relevant experience post PhD)

Demonstrated excellence achieved through interdisciplinary research (presentation)

Best poster

ACT tech talk: Earthquake catalogues and 3D earth structure: a coupled problem

Date: Thursday 28th Nov
Time: 4.30 to 6.00pm
Venue: Scrivener room, Geoscience Australia, Symonston
Title: Earthquake catalogues and 3D earth structure: a coupled problem
Speaker: Babak Hejrani
 

Abstract:

The majority of the Earth’s seismic activity occurs within the top 30 km of the crust which illustrates the shallow dynamic of the driving plate tectonics of our planet. At the same time large, shallow and tsunamigenic earthquakes are among the most destructive natural disasters which surround Australia in the Pacific ‘ring-of-fire’. The 2004 Great Sumatra earthquake and associated tsunami killed ~230,000 people in 14 countries. Thus, the accurate estimation of the location and mechanism of shallow earthquakes is highly crucial for seismic hazard assessments and a better understanding of the shallow dynamic of the Earth. I have developed and implemented methods to incorporate the 3D heterogeneity of the earth into seismic source parameter estimation. Based on these developments, I have drawn a new earthquake catalogue for Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands using a 3D continental earth model of the Australasian regions. Using high-resolution 3D Earth models, I present a high-frequency simulation of the 2016 Petermann Ranges earthquake in central Australia.

 

Bio:

I am from Kurdistan (in Iran). I did my bachelor degree in pure mathematics in University of Kurdistan. I moved to Tehran (Iran’s capital) to do a master degree in Geophysics.

I did my PhD studies on 3D Earth imaging in Aarhus University, Denmark. I moved to Australia, 5 years ago, to undertake a post-doctoral research on incorporating 3D earth structure into earthquake monitoring.

My presentation today will bring together various strands of my research and its application to earthquakes within the Australasian portion of the ring-of-fire
