Spatial Analysis for Geology

04-GEO-MET2

Lecturer

Hartwig Frimmel

ECTS

5 ECTS

 

Aim

Modern exploration for georesources is based on the spatial quantification of all those geological parameters relevant to the formation of mineral deposits. The students will obtain knowledge of the methods that can be applied to the formulation of mineral potential maps for a given region.

 

Content

Mineral deposits are considered products of complex mineral systems, which can be described by a number of parameters that vary in space and time. Various methods of spatially quantifying these parameters and integrating them into mineral potential maps will be discussed and applied with the help of conventional GIS software.

 

Coding

Coding examples and individual work will be covered

Software

Various software programs will be used, but mainly OpenSource software such as R.

Techniques

Different techniques will be introduced and practically applied.
