Artificial Intelligence for Subsurface Characterization and Monitoring provides an in-depth examination of how deep learning accelerates the process of subsurface characterization and monitoring and provides an end-to-end solution. In recent years, deep learning has been introduced to the geoscience community to overcome some longstanding technical challenges. This book explores some of the most important topics in this discipline to explain the unique capability of deep learning in subsurface characterization for hydrocarbon exploration and production and for energy transition. Readers will discover deep learning methods that can improve the quality and efficiency of many of the key steps in subsurface characterization and monitoring.The text is organized into five parts. The first two parts explore deep learning for data enrichment and well log data, including information extraction from unstructured well reports as well as log data QC and processing. Next is a review of deep learning applied to seismic data and data integration, which also covers intelligent processing for clearer seismic images and rock property inversion and validation. The closing section looks at deep learning in time lapse scenarios, including sparse data reconstruction for reducing the cost of 4D seismic data, time-lapse seismic data repeatability enforcement, and direct property prediction from pre-migration seismic data.

Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence for Earth Resource Management offers a detailed look at the different ways data analytics and artificial intelligence can help organizations make better-informed decisions, improve operations, and minimize the negative impacts of resource extraction on the environment.The book explains several different ways data analytics and artificial intelligent can improve and support earth resource management. Predictive modeling can organizations help understand the impacts of different management decisions on earth resources, such as water availability, land use, and biodiversity. Resource monitoring tracks the state of earth resources in real-time, identifying issues and opportunities for improvement. Providing managers with real-time data and analytics allows them to make more informed choices. Optimizing resource management decisions help to identify the most efficient and effective ways to allocate resources. Predictive maintenance allows organizations to anticipate when equipment might fail and take action to prevent it, reducing downtime and maintenance costs. Remote sensing with image processing and analysis can be used to extract information from satellite images and other remote sensing data, providing valuable information on land use, water resources, and other earth resources. And most urgently, data analytics and artificial intelligence can model and predict the impacts of climate change on earth resources and help organizations to develop plans to adapt.This text is a vital resource for data scientists, data analysts, engineers, and administrators working in earth resource management.

Prestressed Members with External Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Tendons: Design, Assessment and Modelling provides an overview of using FRPs, including how to predict the short-term and long-term behavior of externally prestressed concrete or steel-concrete composite members, their second-order effects, and how to examine the effectiveness of using FRP tendons instead of steel tendons for external prestressing. As external prestressing is considered to be one of the most powerful techniques in strengthening of existing structures, this book provides a comprehensive resource on the topics covered.The conventional use of prestressing steel is, however, naturally prone to corrosion. The best strategy to solve completely the corrosion problem is the use of nonmetal materials instead of prestressing steel. Fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites are ideal materials used for external tendons for their excellent corrosion resistance, high strength and low weight.
