Geomodels Research Institute

Geomodels logo

The Geomodels Research Institute promotes the use of new technologies in earth science research. Specifically, it develops modelling techniques to characterize and study the systems and processes that determine the formation, localization and quality of geological resources and reservoirs, the geomechanical behaviour of land, and events related to geological hazards and their impact.

The aim is to establish a multidisciplinary team that models geological processes and thus improves their quantification and the prediction of certain events, both in space and time. In particular, the activities of this institute focus on the 3D characterization of geological bodies, the numerical simulation of processes that act on these bodies and the use of 3D geological models and simulators to assess risk scenarios.

The Institute’s work is multidisciplinary, as it involves the use of techniques from geology, engineering and mathematical modelling. The results are both scientific (advances in knowledge of processes and their characterization) and technological (development of work methods and modelling tools).
