Event Details

This course will inspire geoscientists to explore if EM geophysics can be relevant to their problem, build a foundation for choosing an appropriate survey based upon knowledge of physical principles, and set realistic expectations for what information you might be able to extract from a survey based on physical principles.

The course will be hosted by Doug Oldenburg from the Geophysical Inversion Facility at UBC.

This course is run over two days.

Day 1 is the DISC Course

Day 2 is the DISC Lab which is non-compulsory.

Both days are covered in the price for the DISC Lab, catering is provided both days.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is covered on the second day - DISC Lab?

A. The DISC Lab is designed for a smaller group of geoscientists. We ask participants to provide informal 5 min lightning talks about problems of local interest. We will then work as a group to break down the problems in terms of the 7-Step Framework introduced in the DISC course (Day 1). If participants agree, their talks and results from discussions will be uploaded to the web. By capturing these problems and state-of-progress onto the web, we hope to promote interaction between geoscientists worldwide. Tutorials on simulations and inversions are also available upon request.

Q. Is the second day compulsory, who should attend the DISC Lab?

A. The DISC Lab is non-compulsory, it is available to any persons registered for the DISC course. The LAB is designed for a smaller group of geoscientists, only those interested in working though specific EM/IP problems should attend.

Q. Do I need to be an SEG member to register?

A. No, however you will need to create an SEG profile in order to register. Use the link provided, create a username and password and follow the prompts to pay for the course registration.

Q. Do I get the SEG Member discount as an ASEG Member?
