Geological stochastic imaging for aquifer characterization

Mariéthoz, Grégoire ; Renard, Philippe (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2009 ; Th. 2105.

Accurately modeling connectivity of geological structures is critical for flow and transport problems. Using multiple-points simulations is one of the most advanced tools to produce realistic reservoir structures. It proceeds by considering data events (spatial arrangements of values) derived from a training image (TI). The usual method consists in storing all the data events of the TI in a...

Stochastic simulation of rainfall and climate variables using the direct sampling technique

Oriani, Fabio ; Renard, Philippe (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2015.

An accurate statistical representation of hydrological processes is of paramount importance to evaluate the uncertainty of the present scenario and make reliable predictions in a changing climate. A wealth of historic data has been made available in the last decades, including a consistent amount of remote sensing imagery describing the spatio-temporal nature of climatic and hydrological...
