Geotechnologies Applied to the Study of Natural Resources

This line concentrates on methods and techniques for the extraction and analysis of information on natural resources based on satellite images, aerogeophysical and geochemical data, in addition to the integrated spatial analysis of the same using geo-referenced information systems (GIS). The research conducted within the scope of this line is geared to the development and implementation of quantitative and qualitative techniques for the analysis of spatialised information processing, such as the digital processing of remote sensing images, geostatistics and specialist systems. The results of this research are used in the mineral and oil/gas industry, more specifically in exploration (the search for new deposits of these mineral assets), as well as in geo-environmental analysis geared to natural resources.
