As a kick-off of the coming EAGE Annual Meeting in Amsterdam (8-11 June 2020), we organize a workshop on ‘Uncertainty Quantification and Visualization in Geological modelling’
This full-day workshop will cover all aspects of uncertainty related to geological models. Topics include model accuracy, model precision and the visualization and communication of these uncertainties for geological models ranging from detailed reservoir models to regional scale multi-purpose models.
The workshop is aimed at geoscientists and policymakers that deal with uncertainties, by bridging gaps between producing uncertainty information and understanding and using it.
The uncertainty in these models has different sources, ranging from uncertainties related to wells, i.e. metadata and interpretation, seismics, i.e. 2D or 3D, vintage, velocity model, fault model, property modelling, etc. But also even less quantifiable sources as geological knowledge used in the modelling process. Furthermore, what would be the best way to communicate these uncertainties, using statistical measures, diagrams, cross-sections?
In this workshop we start with a morning session for non-specialists by giving mini-lectures on accuracy, precision and visualization, given by Florian Wellmann and by Bjorn Zehner. For the afternoon session we invite all interested in the topic to submit an abstract for an oral presentation to present case-studies showcasing the important role of the quantification of uncertainties or the visualization of uncertainties.
When: Sunday June 7th 2020
Where: Amsterdam RAI
Abstract submission deadline: February 15th 2020
