Integrated geohazard modelling, visualisation supported by VR
Our group analyses multiple types of geohazards in seismically active regions that require an integrated prospection and modelling approach.
In the field we apply active seismics and ambient noise techniques, to be combined with electrical resistivity tomography, transient electromechanics performed by partner institutes. We can analyse data with single or coupled data inversion techniques and represent related outputs in 3D geomodels, including also strucural geology and topographic data. Landslide and earthquake ground motion dynamics are analysed through 2D or 3D numerical modelling.
Visualisation of inputs and outputs is supported by virtual reality technology (using HTC Vive and Oculus Drift devices). Now, we are preparing a collaborative virtual reality system allowing several people to visit a model together.
