Basin-Fill Sedimentation on the Isles of Raasay and Skye, Scotland UK

Course Description:

The rugged islands of the Inner Hebrides, western Scotland, include some of the most spectacular natural scenery in the UK. Their geology is beautifully displayed in extensive coastal outcrops that illustrate a complete basin fill history that has parallels in all the basins of the Atlantic seaboard. Details of potential Jurassic reservoirs, source rocks and tilted fault block traps are explained in detail and the course also includes Palaeogene intrusive and extrusive igneous rocks that were emplaced in the early phases of creation of the North Atlantic.

This field trip can also be delivered in conjunction with our courses on Clastic Reservoir Geology, Rift Basins or Basin Analysis.
