Collecting information is of vital importance for the development of a mineral project. The capital costs of mining projects are high and there is significant risk due to the available data. At all stages of a project, from exploration to mine closure, decisions need to be made that are based off...
Calculating and modeling a variogram from sparsely sampled data can be complex and time-consuming due to the need for expertise in selecting the appropriate parameters and fitting functions to the experimental variogram. To assist with variogram modeling, a novel approach based on Convolutional...
Network connectivity is an indispensable component of any computer related activities. Any computer-like machine is connected to some kind of a network, which is further connected to another computer network. Technological advances allow users to connect any devices and use multiple applications....
Modeling spatial variables involves uncertainty. Uncertainty is affected by the degree to which a spatial variable has been sampled: decreased spacing between samples leads to decreased uncertainty. The reduction in uncertainty due to increased sampling is dependent on the properties of the...
Wind energy is an important renewable resource to meet the continually increasing global energy demand. The high wind power potential in the sea has led to the development of wind farms in the sea, referred to as offshore wind farms (OWFs). OWFs are an array of wind turbines built in the sea to...
This thesis aims to investigate, develop and advance solution techniques for optimization under uncertainty in process control, scheduling and operations research applications. Decision rule methods offer a rich and flexible framework for solving these classes of problems. Recent literature has...
Life cycle assessment (LCA) is becoming a popular tool to quantify environmental impacts including greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Because of the high number of assumptions and low quality of available data, the results of LCA are often viewed with skepticism. It is common for studies to provide...
Bioclimate envelope models are widely used to project potential species habitat under changing climate. Conceptually, these models are also well suited to match natural resource management practices to new climatic realities, for example by guiding species choice in reforestation programs....
