Steinar Løve Ellefmo
Background and activities
MSc in resource geology, 1999.
Dr. ing in technical resource geology, 2005.
Working with 3D modelling of geodata. Include both geometric and qualimetric (mathematical geoscience and geostatistics) modelling of regional and local geology (deposit scale).
Uses GeoX, Matlab, Isatis, Leapfrog, Surpac, Datamine (CAE Mining) and MicroStation.
