Members of the Basins Research Group were out in force at this year’s European Geoscience Union (EGU) General Assembly in Vienna, Austria (17th-22nd April 2016). Rebecca Bell, Christopher Jackson, Antje Lenhart, Tom Phillips, Duna Roda-Boluda, Adamu Suleiman, Stephen Watkins and Alex Whittaker presented a series of talks and posters, as well as convening a number of sessions and PICOs. They worked hard and played hard…
Matt Reeve presented a poster at the Passive Margins conference, held between 6-8 April at Royal Holloway University. Other BRG members Becky Bell, Tom Phillips and Alex Coleman also presented their work at the conference.
Carl Jacquemyn presented at the AAPG GTW on Exploring and Exploiting Carbonate reservoirs (https://europeevents.aapg.org/ehome/143363/home/) in Bari (Italy) with several contributions on sedimentology-fracture-related karst, 3D geostatistics and storm scour heterogeneity.
Craig Magee gave a talk the Passive Margins conference at Royal Holloway entitled 'Igneous activity and continental break-up offshore NW Australia'.
MSc Petroleum Geoscience field trip to Utah led by Chris Jackson, Gary Hampson and Lidia Lonergan. This trip focused on sequence stratigraphy, clastic sedimentology, structural geology and salt tectonics amidst spectacular world-class outcrops and exposures.
Museum of the Rockies
Whilst in the USA, Susie Maidment spent a week studying a new stegosaur in the Museum of the Rockies, in Bozeman, Montana.
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).
