WHAT WE DO

Running a technically robust, logistically smooth and safe field course involves much more than engaging a technical expert. GeoLogica’s deep expertise in all aspects of field training ensures that the technical content is relevant, all logistical items are in place and that safety management is integral to the event. Our commitment to complete field- and office-based support saves companies significant time and effort.

This exceptional field support capability allows us to provide options for companies to outsource specific elements, or hand over responsibility for the complete field course planning and delivery, according to their business needs.

BENEFITS

FIELDWORK BENEFITS

We believe that field learning is best achieved through a combination of active observation, practical exercises at outcrop and supporting classroom sessions. The field environment:

  • Bridges the ‘resolution gap’ between cm-scale core data and dm-scale seismic data.
  • Provides a true sense of scale that can be related back to available subsurface data.
  • Reinforces classroom learning.

Studies have shown that people learn best through direct observation and experience, interpreting their observations, reflecting on these experiences, then putting the learnings into practice, through exercises and on their return to the workplace. While ‘virtual field trips’ can address direct observation to a degree, the experience of seeing and examining a section of rock outcrop physically (with the accompanying sensory stimuli of the environment, weather conditions, personal interaction and discussion) cannot be replicated. These aspects contribute fundamentally to the learning experience and consolidate this in ways that classroom-based learning alone does not.
