2015 Reservoir Geomechanics: a free online course by Mark Zoback from Stanford University|
Mark Zoback, Professor of Geophysics at Stanford University, asked that ISRM membership be made aware of this educational opportunity. While the course is free, students must register online.
This interdisciplinary course encompasses the fields of rock mechanics, structural geology, earthquake seismology and petroleum engineering to address a wide range of geomechanical problems that arise during the exploitation of oil and gas reservoirs.
In 2014, 3,500 people, on average, watched the lectures and 2,200 completed the homework and received a Certificate of Accomplishment.
