"Integrated Geophysical Models - Theory, examples and implications on creativity"
The necessity to integrate multidisciplinary geophysical data has been increasing significantly over the past one or two decades. Paolo Dell'Aversana, Eni E&P, introduced the theoretical fundamentals of geophysical data integration with the support of practical examples extracted from his 30-years experience in the field.
Paolo Dell’Aversana graduated in Geology in 1988 and in Physics in 1996, at Naples University. From 1997 to 2000 he studied Philosophy of Science and Aesthetics at University of Rome “La Sapienza”. He started his career in 1988, in a private company of geophysical services were he has been employed for about five years. Then he worked as temporary researcher at the Department of Geophysics and Volcanology at Naples University. From 1996 to 2002 he worked at Enterprise Oil Italiana, in seismic acquisition, processing and travel time tomography. He was responsible also for acquisition, modelling and inversion of magnetotelluric and gravity data. Since 2002 he is technical leader and senior researcher in eni E&P. His main responsibility is to develop and to apply integrated approaches in geophysics, using electromagnetic methods combined with seismic and gravity. Over the past decade he has been project manager of many projects of electromagnetic data acquisition, modelling, inversion and interpretation. He is expert in joint inversion of multi-disciplinary geophysical data, borehole electromagnetic, rock physics and seismic tomography.
