2017 PSIGGMA group

The Penn State Initiative for Geostatistics and GeoModeling Applications (PSIGGMA) will bring together top-notch scientists/faculty in the Department of Energy and Mineral Engineering and the College of Earth and Material Sciences and the university who are engaged in critical research in Geostatistics and GeoModeling. Some of the initial research challenges that will be undertaken include:

  1.     Fast assimilation of multi-physics, multi-scale data in subsurface models
  2.     Building models for subsurface structures constrained to spatial connectivity measures
  3.     Rapid extraction of information from BIG earth science datasets and model synthesis
  4.     Understanding and modeling complexity induced by non-equilibrium processes in the subsurface

Three vision statements guide the formation of this initiative:
