Workshop Description

Today, geoscientists have to handle a huge variety of data on a wide range of scales. These data can be derived from measurements in the lab, in wells, at the surface, from satellite… or they can result from different geoscience modelling or simulation approaches. Challenges arise in the integration of the multiphysical features of these data, which is required to provide a consistent understanding of the medium under study. Standard approaches relying on the determination of a model aiming to synthetize all these multiphysical multiscale phenomena are quite complex, time consuming and often hampered by difficulties encountered when coupling the different (thermo-, hydro-, geomecha-, geochemical…) mechanisms as well as their limited capacity to cover scales ranging from core to basin scale. Considering the rapid increase of data in volume and variety, development of sustainable infrastructure, as well as clever data management and analysis approaches seem a promising way, enabling to deduce from data themselves patterns yielding a consistent understanding of the medium. The pending question is the potential of statistical or machine learning methods potential, to name a few, for practical geosciences applications.

Tackling this challenge requires to address following aspects:
– Which efficient infrastructure to manage huge amount of data?
– Raw versus representative database? Which level of data curation, quality control and preprocessing provides a significant added value?
– What kind of data analytics? Which “big data” technologies for specific geosciences applications?
– How to interpret these tool outputs? How to calibrate them? Which confidence can we have on the results?

Examples of what can be expected from application on real or synthetic data would be much appreciated, in particularly to advance on following issues:
– Can we/should we compare big data technologies results to standard approach results?
– Can we estimate the added value of a large range of data?
– Can data science approaches reveal hidden patterns that are not explained by standard modelling approaches?
– How to extrapolate outputs derived from a specific database?
