As part of his Visiting Scientist role, Chris Jackson spent six weeks at the Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG), University of Texas at Austin, working with members of the Applied Geodynamic Laboratory (AGL). Chris worked on a range of project focusing on salt tectonics of the Southern North Sea and Kazakhstan.
Katie Lenette and Jenny Reeves are undertaking a UROP summer placement in the Basins Research Group, analysing seismic reflection data from offshore New Zealand. Kathryn is cataloguing and mapping igneous bodies across an extensive array of 2D seismic reflection data that surround New Zealand, whilst Jenny is using 3D seismic data to conduct a high-resolution study of forced fold geometries developed above saucer-shaped sills in the Canterbury Basin, offshore E New Zealand. Both students will undertake MSci projects with the group.

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).
