Summer School on Computational Modeling in Geosciences

Summer School on Computational Modeling in Geosciences


Modeling in geosciences is necessary in a wide range of fields such as physics, geophysics, petroleum engineering, geothermal, oceanography, hydrology, and can even be applied in other fields. Elementary geology, surface geophysics, and petrography will be given as introductory topics. Through the summer school program, students are expected to be able to obtain a comprehensive knowledge and brief experience in the topic of inversion modeling, digital rock physics, and multi-phase fluid transport. The inversion modeling includes forward and inverse modeling. Topics of rock physics include seismic rock physics and digital rock physics. The multi-phase fluid transport topics will discuss the discrete approach of modeling multi-phase fluid flow in porous medium. The topics are very useful for the students both for research and for industry-related works. Inversion, rock physics and fluid transport are intensive topics studied by researchers and practitioners, given that the materials are still open to be developed as research topics or applications in industries.
