Chris Jackson, along with collaborator David Hodgson from the University of Leeds, gave a series of invited presentations at BG Group’s ‘Lunch-and-Learn’ seminar series (7th November). The presentations focused on the seismic expression, stratigraphy and sedimentology of mass-transport complexes (MTCs) and their impact on petroleum systems development along passive margins.
Susie Maidment gave a talk at the Annual Meeting of the Society of Verterbrate Palaeontology entitled ‘Red blood cells and collagen fibres preserved in 75 million year old dinosaur specimens’.
