Lewis, M.M., Jackson C.A.-L., Gawthorpe R.L. (2013) Salt-influenced normal fault growth and forced folding: The Stavanger Fault System, North Sea. Journal of Structural Geology. DOI: 10.1016/j.jsg.2013.07.015.
Chris Jackson (in absentia), Rebecca Bell, Oliver Duffy, Han Claringbould and Antje Lenhart (along with Thomas Phillips, a PhD student due to start with BRG in October) attended and gave a series of oral presentations at the start-up meeting for the MultiRift project. The two-day meeting, held at the Statoil offices in Bergen, was attended by collaborators from the Universities of Oslo, Bergen and Manchester, as well Statoil representatives from London and Bergen. The second day included a field workshop led by Professor Haakon Fossen (University of Bergen) which focused on basement rocks exposed in the Bergen Arc, west of Bergen. Field discussions highlighted how these onshore exposures provide important information on the timing, nature and and general evolution of the multiphase North Sea rift.
Peter Fitch has been awarded the Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts (SPWLA) Best Poster Presentation at the 2013 Symposium in New Orleans for my paper “The petrophysical link between reservoir quality and heterogeneity: application of the Lorenz coefficient”. Following from this, the SPWLA has invited Peter to be a Distinguished Speaker 2013-2014. Congratulations!
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).
