Sequence Stratigraphy of the Book Cliffs of Utah, USA

Course Description:

The Palaeozoic and Mesozoic sequences of the famous Book Cliffs outcrops of Utah display beautiful examples of most clastic depositional environments, including fluvio-deltaic, shoreface, shelf, incised valley, channel and shallow marine sands and muds. This trip offers a world-class opportunity to study the effects of sea-level change on lithology and architecture. A high-resolution sequence stratigraphic analysis may then be applied to the understanding of the spatial relations of source, reservoir and seal units within a petroleum system.

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