Seminar - Career Workshop - Il ruolo del geologo nel settore estrattivo. Dalle risorse del territorio ad una progettazione sostenibile

Speaker: Dr. Geol. Antonio Rigon (Free-Lance Geologist) | Thursday 30 November 2023 – ore 16:30 | Arduino Classroom

30.11.2023

Nell’articolato comparto delle attività estrattive il geologo riesce a rivestire con successo la funzione di tecnico, grazie alle conoscenze dei giacimenti, dei cicli produttivi, delle tecniche di estrazione e di valorizzazione dei prodotti, grazie alla capacità di operare nel complesso apparato normativo nonché per la rilevante predisposizione nella valutazione degli impatti derivanti dai lavori di coltivazione. La conoscenza dell’impiantistica e la conseguente abilità di ottimizzare i costi di produzione combinate alla completa disponibilità di operare in cantiere, conferiscono al geologo un ruolo fondamentale per la progettazione e per una corretta gestione operativa di cave e miniere, per la prevenzione e la sicurezza dei lavoratori e per la tutela dell’ambiente.

Seminar - The “complex” electrical conductivity of ice and frozen ground

Speaker: Dr. Dr. Adrian Flores-Orozco (Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation, Technical University of Wien - Austria) | Thursday, November, 23, 2023 – 4.30 PM | Arduino Classroom

23.11.2023

This Seminar will revise ongoing approaches in the investigation of alpine permafrost using geophysical electrical methods and demonstrate the importance of accounting for interfacial conductivity in the case of frozen ground, as presented in Figure 1. Moreover, the seminar will present some of our recent results regarding the application of transient electromagnetic soundings to delineate ice‐rich areas in alpine permafrost. To this end, we propose a stochastic modeling and inversion approach explicitly considering interfacial conductivity that permits us to evaluate the uncertainty of the resulting model parameters.

Seminar - Ancient impacts, early life, and gemstones: Insights into the Archean Eon from southern West Greenland

Speaker: Dr. Chris Yakymchuk - Waterloo University (Canada) | Thursday, November, 9, 2023 – 4.30 PM | Arduino Classroom

09.11.2023

The Akia Terrane of southern West Greenland hosts several peculiar geological features that record a transitional period in global geodynamics during the Archean Eon. The terrane is dominated by grey gneisses, metasedimentary rocks, and ultramafic complexes metamorphosed to granulite‐facies conditions. In the northern Akia Terrane, microstructures and structural map patterns have been used to argue that the ~100 km wide Maniitsoq structure formed from a giant meteorite impact at 3.0 Ga; however, diagnostic evidence of impact metamorphism is absent.
