Geology and Me....

Tracing Ore deposits... In Rajasthan..during M.Tech

I never thought that I will take up Geology or Earth Sciences as my career option. I wanted to be an engineer. But you know how strange destiny is. I took geology as my main for Degree and Post Graduation.
No doubt...its a fascinating science. There are many divisions and subdivisions to that. I can give you the best available sources in the internet, for some of my favorite Geology related topics. If you are a person belonging to Earth Science community, I am sure you will find this page very useful
 
General Geology sites

Geostatistics
 
Geostatistics is the extension of Statistical techniques in Geology. It has its origins in the mining industry. Its is being actively used in the Oil and Gas Exploration field as well. Some of the internet resources in this field are
 
http://uncert.mines.edu/tutor/ ..... It explains the basic building blocks of Geostatistics with tutorials
 
http://people.web.psi.ch/kosakowski/geostatistics/  ......links to other resources on geostatistics
 
http://www.ai-geostats.org/  ..... rich resource on Geostatistics
 
To understand Geostatistics, you need to understand the basics of statistics well. The following links would help you on that
 
 
 
 
 
Neural Networks
 
Artificial Neural Netwrks are widely used in many research fields as well as in many industries. Geology is not an exception. Neural Netoworks are used for doing supervised and unsupervised facies classification using well log data or seismic data. If you are looking for some basic information on the Neural Networks, you better go through these sites
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Sequence Stratigraphy
 
Techniques enabling geologist to interpret depositional history and do a better  characterization of the reservoir. This relatively new branch of stratigraphy is fast becoming a par to the essential studies in reservoir characterization. The following web links are useful
