Computer Methods in Geology

Lectures:

  • Methods and aim of the usage of numerical, computer methods and modeling.
  • Deterministic and stochastic models, conceptual, mathematical and physical models. Input and output data, variables, parameters.
  • Numerical approximations (Finite Difference Method, Finite Element Method, others). Stochastic methods, Monte Carlo approaches.
  • Spatial analysis with GIS tools (QGIS or ArcGIS): interpolation of spatial data, raster analyses, slope and relief analyses, contours, visibility, area and volume calculations, 3-D analyses, lidar data.
  • Geostatistical methods (variograms, kriging, trend analysis, spatial interpolation).
  • Special software for data management (hydrogeological and engineering geological modeling, fractals…)

Exercises:
Computer exercises using the aforementioned software.
Seminar paper (solving spatial problems with the selected computer software).
