Rapid Fire Talks by YPs

“Rapid Fire Talks by YPs” is a series of exploitation videos with technical content. 

The rapid fire talks concept has been used during the project meeting in January 2019 in Athens. Project’s Young Professionals presented their results within the project work in a 3-mins powerpoint presentation. These talks have been recorded and released as a series of videos in bi-weekly timeline.

 

Rapid Fire Talks - Lena Brauning

Lena Bräunig is one of the Young Professionals hired by Smart Exploration Project at TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany. This is her 3-mins fire rapid talk explaining her research so far.

Within the Smart Exploration project Lena is dealing with the seismic characterization of mineral deposits. She focuses on the application of advanced seismic depth imaging approaches using existing as well as new acquired seismic data in order to reveal high-resolution seismic images of the deposits.

Rapid Fire Talks - Federico Da Col
Federico Da Col is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Technical University of Torino (PoliTO), Italy. He is in charge of developing innovative methods for surface wave retrieval, processing and inversion from active and passive data (Smart Exploration Tasks 3.1 and 4.4). In this rapid talk Federico gives us an overview on which results his research has reached so far.
Rapid Fire Talks - Bláthnaid McKevitt and Viveka Laakso

Bláthnaid McKevitt and Viveka Laakso are both MSc students at the University of Helsinki.

Bláthnaid is working on processing and interpretation of 2D active-source reflection seismic profiles that were acquired as part of Smart Exploration at the Yara Siilinjärvi phosphate mine site in order to use the reflection seismic data to determine the depth and the lateral extent of the southern continuation of the phosphate-bearing Siilinjärvi carbonatite complex.

Viveka is working on processing and interpretation of 2D active-source reflection seismic, ground penetrating radar and magnetic data from the Siilinjärvi phosphate mine site operated by Yara. Her MSc thesis focuses on combined interpretation and geological modelling of these data, with particular emphasis on the waste-rock dyke network that cross-cuts the phosphate-bearing Siilinjärvi carbonatite complex.

In this presentation they describe their achievements and challenges in carrying out their tasks.

Rapid Fire Talks - Simo Piippo

Simo Piippo is a PhD candidate at the University of Turku and is also working at the University of Helsinki. He is using self-organizing maps to analyze existing multivariate datasets, in order to recognize geochemical and geophysical signatures related to known mineral deposits and various ore-forming processes.

In this talk he gives an overview on the results he reached so far.

Rapid Fire Talks - Paula Rulff

Paula Rulff is Ph.D. student at Uppsala University. She is developing a 3D inverse modelling code for controlled source electromagnetic (CSEM) data using unstructured finite element meshes based on an existing 3D finite element forward modelling code developed at Åarhus University.

In this talk she gives an overview on the results she reached so far.

Rapid Fire Talks - Tuomas Kauti

Tuomas Kauti is a PhD student at the Turun yliopisto – University of Turku, and within Smart Exploration he is producing a comprehensive 3D-model about the diabase dyke network of Siilinjärvi carbonatite complex.

In this talk he gives an overview on the results he reached so far.

Rapid Fire Talks - Florencia Balestrini

Florencia Balestrini is one of the Young Professionals hired within Smart Exploration and is a PhD student at Technische Universiteit Delft. She is applying seismic interferometry for high-resolution imaging of deeper mining targets.

Rapid Fire Talks - Myrto Papadopoulou

Myrto Papadopoulou is PhD student at Politecnico di Torino. She is focusing on near-surface characterization by implementing and developing new surface-wave analysis methods on active data.

In this Rapid Fire Talk she explains us what are the achievements she reached.

Rapid Fire Talks - Katerina Polychronopoulou
Katerina is a Ph.D. student at the National Technical University of Athens. Her research focuses on exploring the limits and capabilities of passive seismic methodologies in the context of mining exploration. She is also Head of the Processing Team at Seismotech S.A., and participated in the acquisition and processing of passive seismic data at the Gerolekas bauxite mining site of Delphi-Distomon S.A., in Greece.

Rapid Fire Talks - Magdalena Markovic
Magdalena is Ph.D. Student at Uppsala University. Her work focuses on high-fold active-source reflection seismic data for deep iron-oxide deposit targeting and high-resolution imaging challenges due to the near-surface conditions. She’s been taking part in the planning, acquisition and processing of a 3D active-passive surface reflection seismic experiment in the Bloberget mine site (Sweden) to study survey design and processing approaches for deep iron-oxide deposit targeting.

Rapid Fire Talks - Konstantinos Leontarakis

Konstantinos Leontarakis is Mining Engineer and Senior Geophysicist in Seismotech SA. His role within the project is the application of Gravity, MT and Passive Seismic methods and the exploitation of all geological, geophysical and geotechnical data.

 The focus area is the Delphi-Distomon bauxite mines at Gerolekas region, Greece. Konstantinos’ primary task is related to the development of a multi-parameter analysis algorithm, in cooperation with Dr. Christos Orfanos, for the integration of all available information in a common Unified Geophysical –Geological model.
