Chris Jackson, Gary Hampson and Lidia Lonergan led an MSc Petroleum Geoscience field trip to Utah, aided by demonstrators Carl Jacquemyn, Susannah Maidment, Daisy Rood, Adamu Suleiman, Carl McDermott and Alex Coleman. Principally focusing upon sequence stratigraphy, clastic sedimentology, structural geology and salt tectonics of some world-class exposures.
Susannah Maidment spent three weeks in the field in Utah studying the Morrison Formation and collecting magnetostratigraphic samples and ashes for radiometric dating, ably assisted by Chris Dean (ESE PhD student).
The Basins Research Group (BRG) at Imperial College London focuses on the geodynamic, struc-tural, and stratigraphic evolution of sedimentary basins. This range of ac-tivities is centred around a multidisciplinary group of Earth Scientists who are committed to understand-ing the fundamental geo-logical processes opera-ting in evolving sediment-ary basins, and the application of this under-standing to determining the nature, origin and occurrence of natural resources (see Themes).
