From 2010-10-17 to 2010-10-22
Venue: Queretaro, Mexico
The relation of fracturing to sediment compaction and subsidence is complex and an important area of research in Mexico, Latin America and globally. The analysis of these phenomena requires a multidisciplinary approach to improve understanding of the triggering factors, failure modes, and propagation processes of fracturing. Geologists, geophysicists, hydrologists, geotechnical and geomechanical engineers, other scientists, resource managers and stakeholders are encouraged to participate in this symposium and contribute papers describing the development of new techniques for monitoring, analysis, interpretation and prediction of subsidence and (or) related fracturing processes. Case studies of applied science and engineering and social/cultural investigations of these processes are welcome.
