The present site is a collection of resources for rock physicists and those who use the results of rock physics in their work.
Geophysicists are skilled at deducing static earth structure from observations of seismic, electromagnetic, and gravitational fields. A fuller appreciation of earth dynamics cannot, however, be realized without a rigorous understanding of the physical properties of earth materials under in situ conditions. Rock Physics investigations provide this key link between rock physical properties and geophysical, deformation and transport signatures. Over the last half-century, Rock Physicists have made considerable progress addressing problems in exploration geophysics, volcanology, crustal seismology, earthquake faulting and petrophysics. Somewhat regrettably, however, much of this work is carried out independently within these increasingly specialized communities; and our experiences are not as widely shared as they should be. The aim of this workshop is to gather Rock Physicists from these various disciplines to share information of state-of the art laboratory measurements, theory, modelling and interpretation that will assist our common goals of evaluating the effects of fractures, rock composition, microstructures, and fluids on geophysical observations. This workshop will centre on new and novel practices in experimental design, modelling, and borehole logging and be illustrated by results from Scientific Drilling programs, hydrocarbon and geothermal exploration, and volcanology, among others. The format of the workshop is intended to foster lively and open debate. Invited speakers will kick-off each session to be followed by set periods for discussion and modified speed-geeking format poster presentations. The Technical Committee is seeking a broad range of participants from industry, academia, and research institutions to share their Rock Physics work within the general session themes of:
