Access to physical rock properties is a primary requirement to model geophysics of rocks under cover. Mira Geoscience, the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) and CAMIRO developed a fully operative, web-based and populated National Rock Property Database System (RPDS). Objectives of this project are: - enter a significant amount of BC data into the system including all existing well-log data; - set up a rock property database for the Central BC Priority MPB study area; - set up a database for the southern BC study area for Targeted Geoscience Initiative 3; - carry out initial analysis and demonstrate applied use of the data at UBC under direction of Nigel Phillips and the GSC in collaboration with Mira Geoscience; and - hold a workshop for the BC Industry to explain the rock property database system and its application to modeling and interpretation of regional geophysics.
