EAGE LC virtual field trip event

Last night the VOG Group's work on virtual outcrop modelling and virtual field trips was on show as an invited presentation for EAGE Local Chapter London and partners. In an online event, Simon introduced the emerging field of virtual geoscience, showing the major changes that have taken place the last years through adoption of drones and photogrammetry for 3D modelling of field localities, combined with new possibilities for sharing 3D models and incorporating them into multidisciplinary virtual field trips. The showcase was an updated trip to the large scale outcrops of Edgeøya, Svalbard, where geology, geophysics, geospatial and computer science converge to allow us to generate simulated seismic data scenarios directly from outcrop interpretations. This is a fantastic approach to help bridge the gap between geology and geophysics. We rounded off the evening with a snap poll for the audience to democratically select another outcrop to visit - and the Book Cliffs was the winner (after a tiebreaker) in a tightly contested field!

 

Thanks to EAGE LC London for facilitating this event and inviting us to participate! For those who participated, a reminder of the Book Cliffs in unconventional colours as we investigated the tilt in the system.
