Seminario - New horizons in shale sedimentology - How experimental advances allow a new look at the rock record

Relatore: Juergen Schieber, Indiana State University (USA), Department of Geological Sciences I Martedì 16 Maggio 2023 – ore 16:30 | Aula Arduino

Mud is the main substrate for the microbial biomass of Earth, and as such is intricately woven in with biogeochemical cycles that exert control on the composition of atmosphere and ocean. For petroleum systems, mudstones are essential as source rocks and seals, and more recently also as unconventional hydrocarbon reservoirs. In contemporary petroleum geology mudstones are a key resource that we need to be able to read accurately if we are to make correct predictions about the economic viability of hydrocarbon production in sedimentary basins. The first step towards that goal is to abandon long held notions about mud accumulation and embracing new emerging paradigms about energetic and dynamic mud transport and depositional processes. Experimental studies are the key towards that end, and they will be the focus of this presentation. We will examine key experimental studies, their functional premises and experimental outcomes, and what we learn from them about how mudstones may have formed in the past.

Seminario - Securing critical raw materials for the twin green and digital transition

Relatore: Dr. Fabio Ferri, EIT RawMaterials CLC South, c/o Talent Garden, Roma I Martedì 9 Maggio 2023 – ore 16:30 | Aula Arduino

09.05.2023

The energy production and the mobility sector will completely transform in the next decade. In Europe, additional push is expected by the REPowerEU plan and the 2035 combustion engine ban. Therefore, a huge increase in the demand for base metals, battery materials, rare earths used by local manufacturers of batteries and clean tech is foreseen. The EU has classified some materials as critical due to their strategic relevance for local industries and the potential risk of supply chain shortages.

Seminario - "Towards Resilient Infrastructure”: A Clay Recipe for Treatment of Expansive Soils in Construction

Relatore: Dr. Joseph Mwiti Marangu, Meru University of Science and Technology (Kenya) - Martedì 2 Maggio 2023 – ore 16,30 | Aula Arduino

02.05.2023

The most common practice in stabilization of expansive soils during construction is the addition of Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC). However, OPC remains unaffordable in most developing countries, and its production also contributes about 6-8 % of global anthropogenic CO2 emissions that are responsible for global warming and climate change. There is need for green solutions. The presentation will highlight the key aspects of a clay recipe for treatment of expansive clay soils in construction with a view to promote resilient infrastructure in the built environment.

Seminario - Global analysis of rivers with deep learning

Relatore: Prof. Patrice Carbonneau, Department of Geography, Durham University (UK) - Lunedì 17 Aprile 2023 – ore 15:30 | Aula 2M

17.04.2023

Many obstacles remain in place and the construction of a data processing pipeline that can effectively deliver global scale river classification is not trivial. This seminar will present a prototype pipeline that combines deep learning with classical remote sensing and image processing methods in order to produce semantic classes for rivers, lakes and gravel bars from Sentinel-2 imagery and at a resolution of 10 meters.

Seminario di Avvio al Lavoro “Northern Lights” and the role of subsurface in Carbon Capture and Storage

Relatrice: Dr.ssa Renata Meneguolo - Equinor, Stavanger (Norway) | 4 Aprile ore 16,30 ! Aula Arduino

04.04.2023

Capture and storage of carbon dioxide (CCS) is considered a crucial tool for the decarbonization of emissions from energy and hard-to-abate industries. Geoscience has a crucial role in the multidisciplinary assessment of the three building blocks of safe CO2 geological storage: containment, injectivity and capacity.
