Idrus Puasa, Howard Johnson, Chris Jackson and Pete Fitch spent a week investigating potential outcrop locations for detailed sedimentary logging of Tertiary thin bed successions in Northern Borneo. Idrus will be spending the next 20 days logging recently exposed sections in Labuan and Kola Kinabalu, as part of his PhD research. These data will be integrated with subsurface data to investigate and characterise the spatial distribution and properties of deep water fan systems offshore Brunei.
Both Antje Lenhart and Dan Collins have been awarded prizes for outstanding contributions during the recent SW England Field Trip organised by Shell. The prize was a copy each of the Peter Ziegler report, "Geological Atlas of Western and Central Europe". Congratulations both!
Both Matt Reeve and Tom Phillips have now passed their 9-month PhD examinations. Congratulations both!

Rosa Polanco-Ferrer and Hamed Khani from the University of Bergen visited the BRG as a part of the ongoing MultiRift project to discuss future possibilities for the project.
Rosa presented some of her work looking at fault intersections within the Tampen spur area, focussing on the Gullfaks field. She also gave an excellent demonstration and tutorial on 2D Move, using examples from her own work.
Hamed presented the results of his work so far looking at a series of regional transects across the North Sea. He was able to collaborate with Han, Antje and Tom, tying his regional interpretations to more local, higher resolution studies.
Craig Magee has been invited to present in a session on ‘Continental Volcanic Rifted Margins’ at AGU in December 2014. Congrautlations Craig!
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).
