DSTA at the Annual meeting on UNESCO IGCP 663 group

A team of the DSTA (Roberta Bonì, Claudia Meisina and Francesco Zucca) is involved in the project UNESCO IGCP 663 "Impact, Mechanism, Monitoring of Land Subsidence in Coastal cities"  (Leader Prof Xuexin Yan, chief engineer of Shanghai Institute of Geological Survey)(). 
The project proposes a scientific cooperative program between institutions and researchers to develop better understanding of land subsidence at international level, especially the less developed countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. It plans to research the Impacts of human activities and sea-level rise, hydro-Mechanism and Monitoring methods of Land Subsidence in Coastal cities. The project results will be transferred to sites in other developing countries, and recommendations will be released to play an effective role in the planning, construction, management and security assurance for different coastal cities.
The 31 October the IGCP project meeting was held in Shanghai and Roberta Bonì has presented the group's activities.

PETEX supports teaching and research activities

At the beginning of October 2018 our Department and Petroleum Experts Limited ( signed an important Educational Agreement.

Petroleum Experts Limited will support research and teaching activities of the Earth and Environmental Sciences Department providing us 10 licenses for their Move Suite 
Move Suite is a powerful structural modelling and analysis toolkit providing  digital environments to carry out structural modelling to reduce risk and uncertainty in geological models. 
The Move suite is composed of a Core Application for data interpretation and 3D model building and 7 modules for more specific processes: 2D kinematic modelling - 3D kinematic modelling - Geomechanical Modelling - Fracture Modelling - Stress Analysis - Fault Analysis - Fault response Modelling.

Move Suite is a well known and widespread tool in more than 420 oil and gas industries worldwide.

Providing 10 licenses, Petex is donating the equivalent of more than 1.300.000 pounds to support our teaching and research activities.

This is a great opportunity for both faculty staff and students.The software will be installed on the computers of the PC lab (Centro di Calcolo, Piano E) so that MS.C students, Ph.D students and teaching activities can take advantage of it.

Winter School MEREMA: an International success

The International Winter School MEREMA (MElting and fluid/melt-rock REactions in the MAntle) has been held in the historic lecture center of the University of Pavia from 13 to 17 February 2017.
This International School on Solid Earth Geoscience, organized by the Italian Society of Mineralogy and Petrology (SIMP), in collaboration with the PhD programs of the Universities of Pavia, Ferrara, Genova, Milano and Modena-Reggio Emilia, and the University of Parma, focused on the Mantle melting process and reaction mechanisms between melting rocks and migrating melts/fluids. 

 PhD and master degree students, and young researchers, coming from 17 countries, approached the main themes by theoretical, experimental, thermodynamic, analytical, geochemical and macro/microscopic studies of mantle rocks.
Lectures have been completed by exercises and practice tests, continuously monitored by a high number of international teachers.
