Title: METHOD FOR PREDICTION OF A SURFACE EVENT
Abstract:
Methods and systems for predicting surface failure of a surface, for example a method comprising the steps of: obtaining a group of measured datasets, each including: a measurement value of at least a first type for each of a plurality of grid elements, each grid element associated with a location on the surface; and a time value, such that the group of datasets includes datasets associated with a plurality of unique time values, identifying an interface set of grid elements for each measured dataset, each interface set comprising grid elements of the associated measured dataset meeting a connection threshold according to a connection rule in dependence on the measurement values of the grid elements, determining a risk of surface failure in accordance with identification of a pattern of grid elements of the interface set which has a persistent location with respect to the surface of interface sets over a plurality of measured datasets.
