Multivariate geostatistical modeling of unconventional shale gas reservoirs in the presence of sparse dataDownload
A geostatistical workflow for modeling multivariate sparsely sampled variables in shale gas reservoirs is proposed in this thesis and applied to a study area in the HRB. This workflow accounts for direct and cross spatial correlation between variables while decreases computational modeling time...
Hydraulically fractured horizontal wells are widely adopted for the development of tight or shale gas reservoirs. The presence of highly heterogeneous, multi-scale, fracture systems often renders any detailed characterization of the fracture properties challenging. The discrete fracture network...
The mining industry has become increasingly concerned with the effects of uncertainty and risk in resource modeling. Some companies are moving away from deterministic geologic modeling techniques to approaches that quantify uncertainty. Stochastic modeling techniques produce multiple realizations...
Natural attenuation refers to the observed reduction in contaminant concentration via natural processes as contaminants migrate from the source into environmental media. Assessment of the dimensions of contaminant plumes and prediction of their fate requires predictions of the rate of dissolution...
Soil Quality Dynamics and Spatial Heterogeneity in Grasslands and Cropping Systems in Western CanadaDownload
Managing the land properly should lead us to conserve the soil which is a critical substance for sustaining our life and the global society. Quantifying the effects of land management and land-use conversion on soil physical and biological properties can aid to identify best management practices...
Growth of the human population within the next half century is projected to reach a staggering quantity. Maintaining our food security for future generations without causing further environmental degradation in an ever dynamic landscape is a complex challenge, which may be partially remedied...
Evaluating the resource contained in a precious metals deposit is a challenging task because they are often characterized by heavily-skewed grade distributions and outlier values. Traditional geostatistical modelling methods are difficult to apply in the presence of outlier values because they...
Studies of spatial variability and simulation of available soil water and extractable soil water are scarce and yet such data are essential in hydrologic and solute transport modeling. A study was conducted to characterize spatial variability of available soil water and extractable soil water on...
Subsurface geological characterization requires solving a classification problem to obtain a model of facies that is later populated with continuous properties. The classification problem, which consists of assigning a single category to any unsampled location based on observed data, is analyzed...
Quantifying uncertainty is key to rational decision‐making in a geological context. Samples collected for Mineral Exploration are usually sparse and only represent a very small portion of the volume that might be mined in the future. To characterize and quantify geological uncertainty, it is...
