SUT-US Webinar Marine Site Characterization


A marine site investigation integrates geology, geophysics, and geotechnical data to develop the soil properties required to understand geological constraints and to gather information to design submarine foundations and layouts.

The webinar is aimed to Geoscientists, Marine Archeologist and Geotechnical engineers that want to learn how to integrate the geophysical and geotechnical data. It provides a high-level overview of the three-day comprehensive course offer by SUT on 11 December 2019 titled “Introduction to Integrated Marine Site Characterization” which provides the basic concepts related to geosciences for geotechnical engineers. And provides the basics concepts of geotechnical engineering for geoscientist. Topics related to Marine Archeology and Metocean are also covered in the three-day course.

Target audience: Geoscientists, engineers, and managers who work, contract, and plan marine site survey and geotechnical programs for exploration and field development.

About the presenter

Earl Doyle
Shell Retired, Independent Consultant
Earl H. Doyle received his B.S.C.E. and M.S. Ocean Engineering degrees from the University of Rhode Island and retired from Shell Oil Company in Houston after more than 30 years of employment. At Shell he was responsible for the company’s deepwater geotechnical and foundation design activities. This included the integration of high-resolution geophysical data to a geological model from which development assessments were made. During his first 17 years, he was involved in geotechnical engineering research at Shell Development Company. While there, he was responsible for the development of the Remote Vane and the EDO deep tow system and its extensive use on the U.S. East Coast and Gulf of Mexico. For his last 13 years, Doyle led the geohazard, geotechnical and foundation design efforts for several important structures, including the Xijiang structures offshore China, several shallow water Gulf of Mexico platforms and the Auger, Mars, Ram/Powell and Ursa Tension Leg Platforms (TLP’s). He has authored or co-authored more than 40 publications in the geotechnical and geoscience field. Doyle presently is a consultant in the area of geotechnical engineering and integrated geoscience studies and specializes in the design of pile foundations for TLP’s where he has designed pile foundations for more than half of the world’s installed TLP’s.
