Following the success of last month’s Zagros workshop, held in London in collaboration with Nautilus, some people who were unable to attend have asked whether we plan to schedule other events on a similar theme. Contact us if you’re interested and we’ll keep you fully posted.
Some of our recent research has appeared in this month’s issue of “Geosphere” journal, describing a robust mathematical method to analyse planar elements (such as fractures) from geospatial outcrop data.

Modern geospatial methods allow us to make high resolution virtual copies of real-world outcrops, which can then be analysed in detail, for example to characterise the geometry of fracture systems for use in reservoir fracture modelling. One important aspect of this approach is to be able to approximate fracture surfaces as planes from the virtual outcrop data. See here for a pre-print of the Geosphere paper.
