Rock mechanical modelling of the Bentonite Rock Interaction Experiment, Äspö Hard Rock Laboratory, Sweden

Introduction An important task for a society that aims at sustainability is to be able to conceptualise, characterise and model different geological systems. The ability to transmit and store fluids … Read More

Mapping erosion and deposition in an agricultural landscape: Optimization of UAV image acquisition schemes for SfM-MVS

Introduction Structure-from-motion (SfM) is a photogrammetric technique used to generate a 3D pointcloud from a collection of overlapping 2D images (Carrivick et al., 2016). The SfM process starts with feature … Read More

The weathering of granitic rocks in a hyper-arid and hypothermal environment: A case study from the Sør-Rondane Mountains, East Antarctica

Introduction The weathering process in Antarctica is key to our understanding of the geomorphological processes that take place in hyper-arid and hypothermal environments on Earth. Although rock disintegration and soil … Read More

3D Electrical Resistivity Imaging (ERI) for subsurface evaluation in pre-engineering construction site investigation

Introduction The success of engineering structures which are directly established on the surface of the earth is among other factors dependent on the support offered by the foundation materials that … Read More

Automatic correction and simplification of geological maps and cross-sections for numerical simulations

Introduction Geological models honoring subsurface data are central objects involved in a wide spectrum of applications (Ringrose and Bentley, 2015). A model, whether it be three dimensional or two dimensional, … Read More
