Themes and Topics

Following themes broadly describe the focus areas of deliberations, with a certain degree of overlapping. The structure has been deliberately kept flexible and will evolve depending on research contributions received from the participants. The minimum coverage topics of conference are:

  1. Engineering Geophysics - application in geotechnical investigations, site characterization, tunnel route studies, bridge foundation studies, etc.
  2. Water Resources Geophysics - Groundwater Geophysics, hydro-geophysics & hydrogeology, climate, contamination survey, etc.
  3. Mining Geophysics - Mineral Exploration, Geosciences for surface mining and safety, open cut mining, slope stability, tailings dam, etc.
  4. Archaeological Geophysics - Geophysics for archaeology and cultural heritage
  5. Dam Geophysics - Geophysics for investigation of existing dams and appurtenant structures, investigations for new dam sites, hydropower sites etc.
  6. Environmental Geophysics. Bio-geophysics
  7. Geohazards and Disaster Mitigation - quick clay, landslide, liquefaction, earthquake, volcanic eruption, tsunami, ground subsidence, mining hazards etc.
  8. Petroleum Exploration – improving deep images by understanding near-surface
  9. Shallow marine geosciences
  10. Geophysics for forensics detection
  11. Application of Geophysical Tools during Construction of Underground Structures

The methods in focus are as under:

  1. Seismic (Refraction, Shallow Reflection, MASW, ReMi)
  2. Electrical (ERI, VES, IP, GRP)
  3. Electromagnetic, Magneto-telluric
  4. Ground Penetrating Radar
  5. Gravity & Magnetic
  6. Borehole Geophysics (Well Logging, Tomography, Cross-hole/ Downhole)
  7. Passive Seismic, Micro-tremor method.
  8. Other Geophysical Methods - Radiometry, Thermal, etc.
  9. Marine Geophysics Methods- SBP, SSS etc.
  10. New Emerging Technologies and Instrument Development
  11. Airborne Geophysics
  12. Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning in Geophysics
