Clastic Basin-Fill Sedimentation in the Pyrenees

Course Description:

The exceptional exposures of the southern Pyrenees exhibit Eocene to Miocene sedimentary basin fill deposits of predominantly clastic material, deposited in a range of continental to shelfal and marine depositional settings. Also to be examined are the complex Late Cretaceous to Pliocene extensional and compressional structures and their relation to sedimentation patterns. The quality of exposure allows for sand body geometry and connectivity to be examined in 3 dimensions, providing an analogue for some of the producing units of the Central Graben of the North Sea petroleum system.

This field trip can also be delivered in conjunction with our courses on Clastic Reservoir Geology or Structural Geology.
