Craig Magee and Chris Jackson attended a 2-day workshop at the University of Oslo in early January, the focus for which was planning the next stage in a collaboration aimed at assessing sill emplacement mechanisms in sedimentary basins using seismic reflection data.
Astratti, D.*, Jackson, C. A-L., Cosgrove, J.W. (2016) Geometry and kinematics of normal faults in a salt-related minibasin, Santos Basin, offshore Brazil. Tectonic Studies Group Annual Meeting, 6-8 January 2016, UCL, London.
Grant, R.J.*, Astratti, D., Jackson, C. A-L. (2016) Geometry and kinematics of a salt-detached fault system, Santos Basin, offshore Brazil. Tectonic Studies Group Annual Meeting, 6-8 January 2016, UCL, London.
In addition, Craig Magee presented a talk entitled, “Lateral magma flow in sill-complexes: towards a paradigm shift in volcanology”, at the Volcanic and Magmatic Studies Group meeting in Trinity College, Dublin in early January.
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).
