Janet Watson Meeting 2018

The VOG Group was present at the Geological Society of London's annual Janet Watson Meeting. This year the title was "A Data Explosion: The Impact of Big Data in Geoscience", which covered how big data and machine learning are having an impact in geoscience research and industry. In addition, a theme of the conference was virtual field trips, and how digital spatial acquisition techniques have reached maturity, allowing enhanced access to geological environments to support training, teaching and existing excursions. We presented extremely inaccessible outcrops in Arctic Svalbard in LIME, where complex logistics, a short field season and a large amount of travel time make these areas out of reach for most geologists. The Kvalpynten example from University of Oslo's Trias North project was used to showcase seismic-scale outcrops and how they relate to the Triassic on the Barents Shelf.
