International Workshop on Gravity, Electrical and Magnetic Methods and Their Applications

SEG/CGS Workshop: GEM Chengdu 2011

10–13 October 2011
Beijing, China

Workshop Goals

Significant advances in gravity, electrical, magnetic and remote sensing methods and technologies have been made recently while new types of geological targets, problems, and application settings bring new difficulties and challenges. Various industry and academic groups have applied these different geophysical techniques with noticeable successes in a wide range of areas including the exploration and development of oil and gas and minerals and investigation of environmental and engineering problems. Researchers and practicing geophysicists in different regions have developed innovative and successful approaches that are not widely known in the worldwide geophysical communities, whereas a lot of challenging exploration and engineering problems may not be exposed to researchers from different regions. The goal of this SEG/CGS workshop is to bring together experts from academia, government agencies, resources companies, and contractors to share the latest technological and methodological developments and successful experiences, and to discuss challenges and future directions and needs.
