 Lineament mapping

 

Challenge ID:

HCP-2101

Originator:

Onshore: Hatfield

Title:

Lineament mapping.

Theme:

ON 2.1: Surface Geology Mapping - Mapping geological features

Consortium Lead:

Arup

Interviewed Company:

Arup

Geography:

ON.REG.00 - Generic onshore

Challenge Description

What is not possible / not adequately addressed at present?

Need to identify structural geological lineaments (joints, faults, discontinuities), presence, orientation, length, quantitative data (stereo-nets). Required for exploration, field development and seismic hazard appraisals including identification of active faults.

What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Information required to reduce uncertainty, improve decision making for exploration and field development.

Thematic information requirements:

Topographic information

Lithology, structural geology,  surficial geology.

What do you currently do to address this challenge? 

How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Approach varies by geographic area and density of vegetation cover. Geological and topographic mapping. DEM analysis (SRTM, ASTER, High Res stereo satellite, LiDAR)

Air photo interpretation. Geophysics. Ground investigation and boreholes.

What kind of solutions do you envisage could address this challenge?

Radar DEM

High Res stereo DEM

Thermal

Multispectral and hyperspectral

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need?

Are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

EO is already well suited, but new technologies coming on stream with increased spatial and spectral resolution (e.g. EnMAP) and new processing techniques will be of benefit.
