On Oct.9, Prof. Carcione from the National Institute of Oceangraphy and Experimental Geophysics, Italy and Prof. Boris Gurevich from Curtin University of Technology, Australia visited IACAS.
Prof. Carcione and Prof. Boris Gurevich gave lectures titled: "Rock Physics and Seismic Modeling to Monitor CO2 Sequestration in the Underground" and "Modelling Attenuation and Dispersion of Elastic Waves in Porous Rocks due to Wave Induced Fluid Flow", respectively.
Friendly and warm discussions followed after the lectures.
José M. Carcione
José M. Carcione was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1953. He received the degree "Licenciado in Ciencias Físicas" from Buenos Aires University in 1978, the degree "Dottore in Fisica" from Milan University in 1984, and the Ph.D. in Geophysics from Tel-Aviv University in 1987. In 1987 he was awarded the Alexander von Humboldt scholarship for a position at the Geophysical Institute of Hamburg University, where he stayed from 1987 to 1989. From 1978 to 1980 he worked at the "Comisión Nacional de Energía Atómica" at Buenos Aires. From 1981 to 1987 he was a research geophysicist at "Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales", the national oil company of Argentina. Presently, he is a senior geophysicist at the "Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e di Geofisica Sperimentale (OGS)" (former "Osservatorio Geofisico Sperimentale") in Trieste, where he was Head of the Department of Geophysics from 1996 to 2000. He is editor of GEOPHYSICS since 1999. His current research deals with numerical modeling, the theory of wave propagation in acoustic and electromagnetic media, and their application to geophysical problems.
