September 2020 commences with two educational highlights:
September 15-16: CSEG Symposium https://cseg.ca/symposium/
Honouring geophysicist and sci-fi author, Lee Hunt, this year’s online symposium focusses on such topics as developing lithium extraction technology, predicting reservoir properties with physics and machine learning, geomechanics in the Montney, the Doug “A” sandstone, Utah, the application of machine learning for log modelling and incorporation into pre-stack depth migration, and the importance of understanding crustal stress and the potential for inducing large seismic events with respect to fluids and greenhouse gas disposal and hydraulic fracturing.
Registration for CSEG Members is $75 plus GST and is free for students/underemployed.
September 21-23: GeoConvention https://geoconvention.com/
Virtual GeoConvention 2020 will be hosted in the comfort of your home or office through your computer or mobile device with an interactive platform that will allow for learning, knowledge sharing, direct interaction with exhibitors and even group networking. With a world-wide reach like never before, GeoConvention 2020 is a must-attend event to learn from and engage with the brightest minds in earth science. This year’s virtual convention includes over 600 presentations, covering a vast array of geoscience topics that we have come to expect from GeoConvention in addition to specific content from Geological Association of Canada, Mineralogical Association of Canada and International Association of Hydrogeologists-Canadian National Chapter.
