Scientific drilling provides access to fluids and rocks in the shallow subsurface that are essential for ground truthing interpretations from geophysical data and geological interpretation, for providing samples for detailed characterization, and for providing inputs to models. This workshop will provide an overview of scientific drilling including: site surveys; drilling, logging, and coring; post-drilling monitoring, experiments, and modeling; and science done in each part of the process.


The SEG-lecture will take place on Friday March 3rd, between 14:00 and 15:00. The talk will be given by  Brandon Dugan – Associate Professor, Department of Geophysics, Colorado School of Mines  - with the topic: Investigating Submarine Slope Failures with Geophysical Data, Scientific Drilling, Laboratory Experiments, and Numerical Modeling.
