The lectures will be held in Room GEO 01
1)      7 May 10-13
2)      7 May 14-17
3)      8 May 10-13
4)      8 May 14-17
 
Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of mineralogy, geochemistry, petrography.
 
Short Program of the Course:Course of Economic Geology of Natural Resources
 
The course is primarily designed to provide to the attendees an understanding of the  economic aspects of the exploitation of the natural resources.
 
The course will focus mainly on the oil&gas business and on the overall energy sector providing an in depth description from the inside point of view.
 
During the course will be also debated the ethics and role of the geologist in the society/industry.
 
During the course will be treated the following topics:
 
Energy -Oil&Gas
Fundamentals
Concept of the reserves and resources
Evaluation of reserves and resources according to SEC and PRMS
Project evaluation
Different type of license agreement (US lease system, royalties, production sharing, buy back etc.)
Governance of the JV (the AIPN joint operating agreement)
Portfolio analysis and management
Definition of a E&P strategy
Cases history
 
Energy - Geothermal
Fundamentals
Concept of resources and their evaluation
Geothermal energy in the world
 
Energy World - an overview
Theory of the pick oil and its criticisms
Oil Vs Gas business
The shale gas revolution
The renewable revolution
Is the end of the oil era started? An answer for inside
 
Role and ethics of the geologist in the industry

Titolo della Tesi Integrated analysis of gravity and magnetic data in Southern Italy, for estimating the geothermal potential
Progetto
Integrated analysis of gravity, magnetic and heat flow data to obtain a comprehensive evaluation/ assessment of geothermal potential in Southern Italy. The gravity data analysis is based on a non-linear and non-iterative 3D potential field method which may enable us to determine the depth to the top or to the bottom and density of 3D homogenous sources from its gravity anomalies using a priori information from at least two depth constraints.
Estimation of depth to the Curie temperature using power spectrum analysis of magnetic/aeromagnetic data by considering fractal behavior of crustal magnetization.

Titolo della Tesi Surface uplift history of the southern Apennines (Italy)
Progetto
The project aims at reconstructing the surface uplift of the Southern Apennines thrust belt-foredeep system, performing two transects, SW-NE oriented, along the chain to study the morphological and structural piece of evidence of absolute and relative vertical motions. Marine terraces, fluvial terraces, intramountain basins and longitudinal river profiles will be analyzed to provide new constraints to the Quaternary evolution of the chain.
Il progetto di ricerca è finalizzato a ricostruire il surface uplift del sistema di avanfossa-catena dell’Appennino Meridionale, effettuando due transetti, orientati SW-NE, che attraversano la catena per ricercare le evidenze, morfologiche e strutturali, di movimenti verticali ed assoluti. Terrazzi marini e fluviali, bacini intramontani e profili longitudinali dei fiumi saranno analizzati per vincolare l’evoluzione Quaternaria della catena.

Titolo della Tesi Rising groundwater levels in the Neapolitan area and its impacts on civil engineering structures, agricultural soils and archaeological sites.
Progetto
Il progetto di ricerca riguarda il tema della risalita delle falde in aree urbane e rurali, un fenomeno che ha colpito diversi centri urbani del mondo con forti impatti socio-economici ed ambientali.
Nell’area napoletana il fenomeno è iniziato nei primi anni 90 e perdura tutt’oggi; le conseguenze della risalita delle acque sotterranee (in termini di allagamenti, uplift del suolo, danni alle strutture) sono state registrate con un certo ritardo temporale dall’innesco del fenomeno ed hanno avuto una distribuzione spazialeeterogenea, interessando parte degli edifici, terreni agricoli e siti archeologici.
Pertanto, la ricerca si pone come obiettivo: a) lo studio delle dinamiche attuali delle falde ed i possibili scenari futuri, attraverso la modellizzazione matematica del flusso idrico sotterraneo con il codice Modflow (USGS); b) il monitoraggio delle deformazioni del suolo (uplift) mediante metodi DInSAR e l’implementazione di un modello idro-meccanico per valutare la risposta tensionale del suolo alle variazioni piezometriche; c) la formulazione del GroundwaterFlood Risk e l’individuazione dei possibili interventi di mitigazione del rischio.  
----------------
The topic of the researchis the groundwater rising in urban and rural areas, a phenomenon affecting several urban centers of the world with strong socio-economic and environmental impacts.
The Neapolitan area is affected by this
phenomenon since the early 90s. The consequences (such as floods, soil surface uplift, damage to structures) on buildings, agricultural land and archaeological sites have been recorded with delay from the start of the phenomenon and with heterogeneous spatial distribution.
Therefore, the research objectives are: a) the study of current groundwater dynamics and possible future scenarios, through the mathematical modeling of groundwater flow with the Modflow code (USGS); b) the monitoring of ground deformations (uplift) using DInSAR methods and the implementation of a hydro-mechanical model to evaluate the soil stress response to piezometric variations; c) the formulation of the Groundwater Flood Risk and the identification of possible risk mitigation measures
