EAGE/DGG Workshop on Mining and Tunneling Geophysics

16 - 16 February
Leoben, Austria
Call for papers

Join EAGE and DGG in Leoben!

In this workshop we want to focus on technical problems related to the construction and operation of mines and tunnels, including mine heap investigations. One of the key factors in mining and tunneling is the mechanical properties of the rock mass. Stress changes due to excavation affect those properties and cause rock fracturing and increased safety, technical and economic risks. Geophysical exploration and monitoring technologies may help recognize potential risks. We invite papers that deal with all aspects of the characterization and the monitoring of rock mass properties in mines and tunnels, including active and passive seismic methods to look ahead of the tunnel face, to monitor stress changes, to characterize rock quality, or to characterize and monitor mine heaps.

 More information about the workshop will follow shortly!
