Looking forward to see you there!

We are delighted to invite you to Lisbon, Portugal for the GeoENV 2016, the 11th International Conference on Geostatistics for Environmental Application Conference from 6-8 July 2016.

GeoENV conferences have been held biennially at venues across Europe. The first conference was held in Lisbon in 1996 with the aim of bringing together researchers working on environmental subjects approached by geostatistical methods. At that time, papers were attracted from fields as diverse as hydrogeology, biology, soil sciences, air pollution or ecology.

Since then, research on these fields has expanded and new fields have emerged. Today, GeoENV conferences have become a leading forum for scientists across a broad range of disciplines to share their experiences on the application of geostatistics to environmental problems.

During the GeoENV 2016, twenty years after the first conference, we aim to bring together scientists, researchers and research scholars to share contributions on recent or new developments or applications in various disciplines focused in the solution of environmental problems using geostatistical methods.

                    ADVANCED GEOSTATISTICS IN ENVIRONMENTAL APPLICATIONS: DIFFERENT DATA INTEGRATION IN GEOSTATISTICAL MODELS (6 hours).

                    Lecturers: Amilcar Soares(CERENA, IST – Lisbon University), Leonardo Azevedo (CERENA,

                    IST – Lisbon University)

                    Course Description:

                    The cost of information in environmental studies – soil samples, drilling bore holes, well log data, air quality monitoring – usually results in a lack of data and consequently in loss of quality of the proposed models. The use of different data in a same modelling framework is one of the most important challenges in environmental geostatistics. This short course intends to give the most recent advances in geostatistical integration of different data in the same model of spatial or space-time characterization of main properties of a physical phenomema.  Different spatial support soil samples, different types of data –electromagnetic survey and bore-hole data- for contaminated site characterization, data from deterministic models, remote sensing data with different spatial and spectral resolutions, are examples of data which can be integrated through inverse modeling or simulation with different support data. The topics will be illustrated with real case studies.

                    • Stochastic Simulation with different spatial support and uncertain data
                      • Different Spatial Support Data Integration for soil quality characterization.
                      • Integration of uncertain data for soil quality characterization.
                    • Inverse Models to integrate Geophysical Information.
                      • Electro-magnetic data integration for contaminated sites characterization.
                      • Seismic Inversion for subsurface geological and petrophysical properties modeling.
                    • Hybrid Models: Deterministic dispersion models and stochastic models for environmental applications
                      • Hybrid Models for air quality characterization in industrial areas.
                      • Hybrid Models for characterization of contaminated sediments in a coastal lagoon.
                    • Dynamic data integration and Uncertainty Assessment.
                      • Characterization of main properties of an aquifer by integrating the dynamic data.

                    Lisboa’s location, spread over seven low hills, overlooking the river Tejo, once lured traders and settlers, and continues to be a stunning site.
                    Add to that the cultural diversity, a pleasantly temperate climate all year-round and a people that by longstanding tradition offer visitors a warm welcome. Medieval Alfama is the charming and oldest part of the city with its maze-like streets, crowned by the impressive Castelo de São Jorge. The Baixa’s commercial avenues lies just below. The elegant Chiado shopping area climbs away up another hill, next to Bairro Alto, home of much of the Lisbon nightlife.
