Chris Jackson visited the University of Liverpool to visit Dan Faulkner and Pete Burgess to discuss ongoing collaborative research in the areas of geological controls on CO2 storage and stratigraphic forward modelling, respectively.
Rebecca Bell, Chris Jackson, Dylan Rood and Alex Whittaker met with Joanna Faure Walker (UCL) and Gerald Roberts (Birkbeck) (17th June) to discuss collaborative research related to the growth of normal faults and associated earthquake hazards.
Leonardo Muniz Pichel of the University of Manchester visited ESE (13th-17th June) to work with Chris Jackson on the salt tectonics of the Santos Basin, offshore SE Brazil. His work will focus on the stratigraphic record of horizontally translating minibasins, with this work complimenting his ongoing research on the salt tectonics of the Moroccan continental margin.

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).
