This chapter describes an algorithm that predicts events by mining Internet data. A number of specialized Internet search engine queries were designed to summarize results from relevant web pages. At the core of these queries was a set of algorithms that embody the wisdom of crowds hypothesis. This hypothesis states that under the proper conditions the aggregated opinion of a number of nonexperts...
Physical properties such as bulk density (gamma ray attenuation), P‐wave velocity (primary or compressional wave acoustic velocity), electrical resistivity and magnetic susceptibility are related to characteristics of the marine sediments that, in turn, are indicative of the lithology. Non‐destructive physical properties are routinely measured during Mission Specific Platform expeditions conducted...
