Geophysics Call for Papers

Hydromechanical phenomena at the pore scale and their upscaling

This special section of Geophysics is dedicated to studies of hydromechanical phenomena at the pore scale which complement or extend the classical understanding of rock poroelasticity. In the process of upscaling coupled hydromechanical phenomena of fluid-saturated porous media, classical theories of poroelasticity neglect certain pore-scale effects, which may strongly affect geophysical acoustic measurements in the seismic-to-sonic frequency range.

Rock Physics Opportunity


The Department of Geophysics at Colorado School of Mines is continuously seeking exemplary scientists to add to our faculty. At present we are particularly interested in individuals with expertise in the area of petroleum geophysics. Our faculty is collaborative and future hires are expected are expected to interact with multiple researchers in the department and across the Mines campus including the Reservoir Characterization Project (RCP).  RCP is a 30-year-old, well established industry consortium that is sponsored by oil and gas operators and service companies and is dedicated to the study of integrated reservoir characterization. The unique model emphasizes a multidisciplinary, collaborative team approach for practical research and preparation of graduate students. For details on the consortium please see Mines seeks highly qualified individuals who will contribute to the excellence of our academic community through their research, teaching, service, and dedication to diversity in the geosciences.

16th Rock Physics Influencer March - April 2018

Tiziana Vanorio

Tiziana got her MS and PhD from the University “Federico II” in Naples, Italy. She then joined the Rock Physics group at Stanford for her post-doctoral research, working on the rock physics of volcanic rocks and clay-bearing analogues. She started her career in Europe, in France, at the University of Nice Sophie-Antipolis, as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie awardee. Then, in 2008 she got the degree for a habilitation thesis based on independent scholarship, thus receiving formal qualification to professorship the same year. Read more
