While multi-rotor drones have flexibility and can work in tight spaces, they may not have the enough range and cannot carry enough weight for large projects. Fixed-wing drones can often provide the solution needed for a large surveying or surface geology study. Welcome to an interview with Lyndon Nance, who discusses his experiences with large mapping projects in which he uses fixed-wing drones.

VG Abstract

The following short course option was developed for geology and geophysics students that have not had much exposure to how geoscience is applied in industry. It can be tailored for undergraduate juniors and seniors or graduate students. The agenda can be modified to meet specific needs and time constraints. Contact the presenter to discuss options.

VG Abstract

In 1991, Gulf Indonesia and its partners discovered South Sumatra Basin’s first major gas field at Dayung in the Corridor PSC. A key feature of this field is that most of the reserves are held within fractured basement rocks of pre-Tertiary age.
