ECSA 56 — Coastal systems in transition
ID
773082
Dates
04 Sep 2016 - 07 Sep 2016
Location
Bremen, Germany
Abstract
Welcome to ECSA’s next major symposium, ECSA 56 Coastal systems in transition: From a 'natural' to an 'anthropogenically-modified' state, which will take place from the 4-7 September 2016 in Bremen, Germany. Humans are drivers of and affected by global change. Human-induced global climate and regional environmental change dramatically modify the structures and functions of coastal systems driving them into a new system state. The altered resource potentials and ecosystem services then, in turn, significantly affect the livelihoods of the population. Distinguishing between natural and anthropogenic control factors and quantifying their impacts is a major challenge in the investigation of hydrodynamic, sedimentological, biogeochemical, ecological and socioeconomic processes in the coastal zone. Inter- and transdisciplinary efforts are required to gain a profound understanding of these "novel" systems, which provides the basis for a sustainable management. ECSA 56 brings together a global multi-disciplinary community of researchers and professionals to discuss and address issues of outstanding scientific importance in the science and management of estuaries and coastal seas in this rapidly changing world.

EAGE Workshop on Evaluation and Drilling of Carbonate Reservoirs
ID
761680
Dates
27 Nov 2016 - 30 Nov 2016
Location
Muscat, Oman
Abstract
More than 60% of the world’s oil and 40% of the world’s gas reserves are held in carbonate reservoirs. Carbonates especially dominate fields in the Middle East with around 70% of oil and 90% of gas reserves found in these reservoirs. Carbonates accumulate predominately through the in situ growth and destruction of organisms, with transportation over relatively short distances. The nature of carbonate deposition, along with evolutionary changes in biota and primary mineralogy, results in the development of facies that can exhibit highly varying properties.

HS_DT — Hydrodynamic Stability and Dynamo Theory
ID
833045
Dates
09 Dec 2016 - 20 Dec 2016
Location
Warangal, India
Abstract
The topics of the course, related to recent astrophysical and geophysical problems, is also very attractive to applied mathematicians. Sophisticated mathematical approaches applying wide spectra of numerical as well as analytic and asymptotic methods are necessary for successful and effective solutions of those physical problems. The first goal of the course is to motivate mathematicians to solve complex physical problems. Therefore, the course indicates an attractiveness and practical usefulness of topics related to the magnetic fields generation of cosmic bodies, in particular of the Earth and Sun. Understanding and the ability to predict the time behaviour of the last two fields has also enormous practical significance, and it is not yet solved. The second goal is to show how various branches of mathematics are indispensable in solving the problems of Convection and Dynamo Theory in astro- and geophysics. The 3rd goal is to introduce the basic physical background for the topics with emphasis on mathematical expression of this physics, i.e. to underline the correspondence between the physics and mathematics of the topics.

We will highlight breaking results from K2's Campaign 9 ( K2C9 ), which constitutes the first combined ground- and space-based microlensing survey, as well as progress in Spitzer's program of obtaining "satellite parallaxes." Talks on ground-based surveys and advances in theory will also be featured prominently. Finally, we will have a number of talks on the revolutionary promise of the WFIRST mission for exoplanet science, which was recently approved to enter Phase A. Together these endeavors provide invaluable insight into topics such as the Galactic distribution of exoplanets, the abundance of free-floating planets, and the demographics of cold exoplanets.

Abstract
Naturally fractured reservoirs contain a major part of the world’s remaining hydrocarbon reserves, but their successful characterisation and development remains very challenging. Difficulties when characterising naturally fractured reservoirs are encountered across the entire G&G domain and include, but are not limited to, developing conceptual models for fracture formation, using appropriate seismic attributes, obtaining 3D fracture statistics from well logs, selecting adequate outcrop analogues, or building representative models for the rock matrix.

Workshop III: Data Assimilation, Uncertainty Reduction, and Optimization for Subsurface Flow
ID
832045
Dates
22 May 2017 - 26 May 2017
Location
Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States
Abstract
There are major computational challenges and substantial uncertainties associated with model inversion and performance optimization in oil field applications. As production and (in some cases) 4D seismic and electromagnetic data are collected, there are inevitably discrepancies between the predicted and actual reservoir responses. This drives the need for data assimilation, usually referred to as history matching in petroleum engineering. History matching involves the solution of a computationally demanding, highly ill-conditioned, inverse problem. Key complications that arise are the uncertain nature of the geology (and thus the need to "properly" sample the posterior distribution), combined with the need to retain geological realism in history-matched reservoir descriptions. Additional complexity enters as a result of the unknown rock-physics quantities needed to integrate multiphysics data sets. Applications received by Monday, March 27, 2017, will receive fullest consideration.

International Earth Science Colloquium on the Aegean Region, IESCA-2017
ID
800818
Dates
02 Oct 2017 - 06 Oct 2017
Location
Izmir, Turkey
Abstract
The Aegean region and its environment are located in a complex geological belt in the eastern Mediterranean region that was shaped by almost the whole range of geological events, such as oceanic to continental subduction and collision followed by syn- to post-orogenic extension during the closure period of the Paleozoic to Mesozoic Tethys oceans. Therefore, the region preserves many records of several pulses of magmatic, sedimentary and metamorphic events together with economic mineral deposits and energy resources. With this complex framework, the region has become a geological laboratory to study, discuss and understand almost all of the geological processes and problems rising in an orogenic system.    In order to share and discuss the new findings and ideas, we are now organizing the seventh of the traditional "International Earth Science Colloquium on the Aegean Region", IESCA-2017 which will be held at Dokuz Eylul University, Izmir, Turkey (coastal city in the eastern Aegean Sea), 2-6 October 2017.
