Bayesian Lithological Inversion

By Daniel Bartels • June 22nd, 2015

Airborne electromagnetic (AEM) data are used in minerals exploration and to aid construction of groundwater models. Typically, these data are inverted using deterministic methods, for parameters of interest which must be interpreted for geological structure.  In contrast, our novel approach employs a stochastic methodology which attempts to invert directly for geologically-meaningful parameters and their uncertainties.more…

Understand metal partitioning in liquid-vapour-melt systems using molecular dynamics

By Daniel Bartels • June 19th, 2015

Metals are transported from mantle or lower crust to shallow crust via various kinds of chemical forms then form economic ores. Liquid-vapour-melt systems cover some types of ore deposits with economic importance such as porphyry, skarn and epithermal deposits. Reliable knowledge of metal partitioning in liquid-vapour-melt systems is essential in understanding the enrichment, transport andmore…

In silico design of robust porous materials for energy and environmental applications

By Daniel Bartels • June 19th, 2015

Hybrid porous materials have the potential to outperform other candidate materials for application in selective storage and release of clean fuels such as hydrogen or methane and in detecting and separation of toxic gases. However, choosing the right material for the operating conditions is highly time consuming and costly, thus creating significant challenges that remainmore…

Predicting evolutionary potential under climate change from phylogenomic data

By Daniel Bartels • June 19th, 2015

Climate change is occurring and species are moving, adapting, or facing extinction [1]. There are now good indications that features of the phylogeny and ecological niche of species can be used to predict a species’ ability to adapt to climate change [2, 3, 4]. The core of this proposal is to develop a framework thatmore…
