Learning Objectives

Student must:  - reach a good skill in MOVE workspace environment, working and thinking simultaneously in 2D and 3D, developing a consciousness on field data collection and meaning;  - be able to draw a cross-section in 2D and to create a 3D geological model from filed data, geologic map or seismic sections;  - get basic concepts on cross-section and 3D model restoration, in order to validate interpretation.


1_ Introduction to MOVE workspace 2_ Field data import, editing and georeferencing: raster, vector and .shp files. Digitization linear (geological/structural limits) and punctual (dip data) data. 3_ 2,5D and 3D surfaces. Surface construction, editing and dressing with linear, punctual data and thematic maps. 4_ Seismic section import and editing: Import .segy and raster file, digitization, creation of datasets and time/depth conversion. 5_ Geologic section and 3Dmodel: Cross-sections validation through unpacking and restoration according to different algorithms; Cross-sections and 3D models construction?from field data, geological maps, seismic sections and well data;

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

knowledge and understanding - Student will acquire knowledge to work in an environment multidimensional. applying knowledge and understanding - The course foresees the study of real cases and the processing of data from the student who apply its knowledge. At the end he will be able to implement all its skills. making judgements - With the introduction of a multidimensional workplace, student acquires a greater awareness during data acquisition and processing. communication skills - Student will be able to communicate in different ways (reports, presentations, etc.) the results of the work done. learning skills - Since tools and applications are evolving rapidly, the student will be able to continually update, proposing solutions and original procedures.
