OGS, Trieste, Italy,  October 10th-12nd 2022

The EurofleetsPlus “Blue Skills LABS”

During the past decade new technologies have remarkably extended the scope of marine research and now offer exciting novel perspectives for pioneering research. Unmanned underwater vehicles have reached a high level of reliability and they develop towards standard equipment on modern research vessels. However, the technical complexity of the systems and their integrated scientific payload is a challenge for both the operational team and the scientists. Eurofleets+ will address these needing through the proposed dedicated training courses (Blue skills Labs) to enable the next generation of marine researchers to fully exploit the possibilities offered by this kind of scientific instrumentation onboard European research vessels.

Workshop overview

The Seismic Lab workshop is organized as part of the EurofleetsPlus training program and will be held at OGS, National Institute of Oceanography and applied Geophysics in Trieste (Italy).

The three-day workshop (October 10-12, 2022) is offered to researchers in the field of marine science who have no or only basic experience and knowledge in the acquisition and processing of multichannel seismic data.

The workshop will cover topics such as

  • Marine Seismic data acquisition (sources and geometry)
  • Basic of waves propagation
  • Seismic data processing
  • Seismic numerical modelling
  • Seismic tomography and applications to marine data
