The mandate of the Geological Modeling and Analytics Division is to provide CSPG members with opportunities for education and information related to technical developments in the subject areas of geomathematics and computer technologies as they are used in the pursuit of petroleum exploration and development. As a main contribution of the division, technical luncheon presentations are held once a month, usually on the last Thursday of the month.
The subjects that are presented in these technical talks include, for example, the latest developments in geomathematical applications, Machine learning, Geological modeling technology, Geostatistical approaches to modeling and uncertainty analysis, Geological data analytics approaches, Case studies using geomodeling technology and the benefits. In addition, ad hoc forums may be organized where members can discuss geological modeling and analytics issues with experts in the field. The Geological Modeling and Analytics Division does not endorse or promote the use of specific commercial software products, nor does it perform any testing or comparative studies of such products. We do encourage volunteers to present public talks on case histories that illustrate the use of technology and methods.
