This time around attendees of the webinars were exposed to the application of micropaleontology study in predicting the future and understanding the past changes of planet Earth. The attendees were undergraduate, postgraduate, industrial partner (Mineral and Geoscience Department of Malaysia) and faculty members from UTP and UMT. Finally, a talk by Gs. Dr. Muhammad Hafeez on the Electromagnetic Method for Investigating Antarctica Ice-sheet Stability ended the webinar series in July 2021. The talk was very successful with attendance from students and faculty members from UTP and UMT.

National Marine Geology Webinar is an annual event under the umbrella of Institute of Geology Malaysia (IGM). The host of this event were rotational given among the peers and affiliate of IGM which includes University Technology of PETRONAS (UTP).

This webinar already running for the 3rd year and this year UTP were selected to become the host. In conjunction with that and since UTP is a member of ERASMUS+ MARE initiative, a collaborative event was plan for this year National Marine Geology Webinar.

14 – 18 March 2021: DELFT3D FM SUITE WORKSHOP

The Delft3D FM suite workshop is a five-day training session aiming to give the participants some first hands-on experience in using the software to define the input of basic scenarios, verify the input, execute the simulation and inspect the results. On the first day of the workshop, participants will be given a brief introduction about the software and taught on how to create a land boundary and computational grids for the study area. The second day of the workshop will be focused on defining the input for the hydrodynamic simulation, in which all the parameters to be used originate from the same area being modeled. The hydrodynamic model simulation will be executed on the third day of the workshop. Further, the post processing program to visualize or animate the simulation results will be introduced to the participants. On the last two days of the workshop, participants will be given a freedom in getting familiarized with the software using their own set of data. The instructor will guide the participants if they are facing any problems with the simulation.
