The use of A.I and SAR data to characterize and assess geohazards at multiple scales

28.02.2024

Advanced numerical modelling and remote sensing techniques can play a crucial role in the challenge of managing the risks caused by geohazards. Junaid Khan is a Ph.D. student from Pakistan who has just started his project at the Department of Geosciences of the University of Padua, in the framework of the Excellence Project "Geosciences for Sustainable Development", working on monitoring, mitigating and forecasting geohazards through A.I. techniques by using remote sensing optical and SAR data.

Making geothermal energy accessible almost anywhere: the goal of DeepU project

02.02.2024

Easily accessible deep geothermal resources for heating and power are fundamental for accelerating the decarbonisation of energy supplies in Europe. The goal of the DeepU project is increasing the accessibility of deep geothermal resources for low carbon heating and power generation, by offering a substantial reduction of well drilling costs to deliver deep heat exchange systems. The project, coordinated by the University of Padua, is funded by the European Union and the technical feasibility of DeepU technology, based on an absolute innovation on the use of laser techniques for deep drilling, is demonstrated at the laboratory scale.
