- Understand the theory and the application of classic and state-of-the-art analytical methods for their applications in Earth Sciences including reservoir characterisation
- Evaluate the significance of "classic" and state-of-the-art analytical methods for a specific (research) project in the field of geosciences and renewable energies
- Use quantitative data to understand the rock composition of a reservoir, or rock related to a petroleum play or any other rock formation
- Assess quantitative data from state-of-the-art methods for a specific geological scenario
- Select the ideal analytical method for a geological scenario and evaluate the impact of the data
- Evaluate the quality of quantitative data in geological contexts
- Quantitative methods using geochemical and isotope geochemical data besides petrographic ones are THE tool in nowadays to understand reservoirs and a paramount for modelling purposes - they also are THE major tool to interpret correlation and stratigraphy. Modelling and subsurface studies are dependent on the quantitative results when possible to gain as a comparative tool or THE basic information source. Ideal is a combination of sub-surface and quantitative data to evaluate rock successions for a wide area of expertise including geothermal energy and other renewable energy forms.
- Geochemical applications for hydrocarbons, reservoir, host and seal rocks.
- Isotope geochemical applications for hydrocarbons, reservoir, host and seal rocks.
- Diagenesis and movement of hydrocarbons in rocks.
- Biostratigraphy: methods and analytical techniques.
- Non-standard correlation techniques (chemostratigraphy, magnetostratigraphy, others).
- Modern fieldwork methods.
- State-of-the-art quantification methods of geological material.
