Andrea Viezzoli, Ph.D., Principal Geophysicist.
CV: M.Sc. in Physics (Bologna University), Ph.D. in Geophysics (Monash University), postdoc at the Hydrogeophysics group of Aarhus University. Director of Aarhus Geophysics since 2009. Andrea is coauthor of numerous publications on peer reviewed journals and conference proceedings on Airborne EM, especially for groundwater applications. Reviewer for several scientific journals in the field, invited keynote speaker on hydrogeophysics at international conferences, contributor to white paper on AEM for groundwater mapping.
Skills and industry experience: Over the last 10+ years, Andrea has contributed at scientific and industry level to the development of the field from data processing to inversion, data integration and interpretation. He has numerical and modelling skills, an appreciation for data quality, accuracy, precision and calibration. Andrea has either carried, or supervised and managed numerous projects of AEM data processing, inversion and modelling for both industry and government in different countries, including Australia. He also participated in publicly funded research projects with similar roles. His experience and skills are a perfect match for the processing, inversion and data integration (e.g. integration of new and old data/models from the older AEM surveys included within the model boundary) part of this request to quote.
Antonio Menghini, M.Sc.
CV: Antonio received a degree in Geological Sciences from the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, Italy in 1989. He is currently employed by Aarhus Geophysics Aps, as an expert geophysicist in the processing of Airborne EM data. He worked previously as a free-lance geophysicist using EM, Electrical, Magnetic and Refraction Seismic methods. During the period 2006-2009 he worked as consultant for Rocksource and Nordic Mining, companies involved in energy and mining exploration, for the application of onshore EM methods, by means of feasibility studies and field testing. He was a lecturer of Applied Geophysics to the Sedimentary Successions in the University “Gabriele D’Annunzio” of Chieti (Italy), during the 2008-2009 Academic Year. He has participated in numerous international projects. He is currently a member of ASEG, SEG, EAGE, EEGS and Associate Editor of the Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics, as expert on EM and Electrical methods.
Skills and industry experience: Antonio is an expert processor and modeller of ground and airborne TEM and HEM data, specializing in geological and hydrogeological interpretation for different applications integrating AEM with existing geological data, boreholes, logs and other geophysical results (mag, seismics, grav).
