Evening Lecture

High impact drilling: Chicxulub, petrophysics and cluster analysis

Presenter – Dr Erwan Le Ber, Leicester University

Tuesday, 17th April, 6:30pm

Dr Erwan Le Ber of Leicester University will talk about ‘High impact drilling: Chicxulub, petrophysics and cluster analysis’. In 2016, IODP – ICDP expedition 364 drilled the Chicxulub impact crater, offshore Mexico. Recovered target rocks, collected from the peak ring of the crater, moved more than 20 km in 10 minutes during the impact. Exciting multidisciplinary research is ongoing: scientists study the physics of the impact, how it compares with analogues on other planets, how life was affected on Earth, how it recovered, and more. The research presented focuses on unsupervised and semi-supervised clustering performed on petrophysical data collected on the cores from the expedition.
