Missing data simulation inside flow rate time-series using multiple-point statistics

Oriani, F ; Borghi, A ; Straubhaar, J ; Mariethoz, Grégoire ; Renard, Philippe

In: Environmental Modelling & Software, 2016, vol. 86, p. 264-276

The direct sampling (DS) multiple-point statistical technique is proposed as a non-parametric missing data simulator for hydrological flow rate time-series. The algorithm makes use of the patterns contained inside a training data set to reproduce the complexity of the missing data. The proposed setup is tested in the reconstruction of a flow rate time-series while considering several missing data...

When miners become “foreigners”: Competing categorizations within gold mining spaces in Guinea

Bolay, Matthieu

In: Resources Policy, 2014, vol. 40, p. 117-127

Drawing on ethnographic research and problem-centered interviews in Guinean mining areas, this paper presents a comparative reading of the conflicting conceptions of what constitutes a “mining community.” First, I explore how independent artisanal miners describe and identify their activity. The weight of autochthony conventions is discussed concerning their insertion both in the mining...

Integrating aerial geophysical data in multiple-point statistics simulations to assist groundwater flow models

Dickson, N.E.M ; Comte, J.-C ; Renard, Philippe ; Straubhaar, J ; McKinley, J.M ; Ofterdinger, U

In: Hydrogeology Journal, 2015, vol. 23, no. 5, p. 883-900

The process of accounting for heterogeneity has made significant advances in statistical research, primarily in the framework of stochastic analysis and the development of multiple-point statistics (MPS). Among MPS techniques, the direct sampling (DS) method is tested to determine its ability to delineate heterogeneity from aerial magnetics data in a regional sandstone aquifer intruded by...
