Introduction to Depositional Environments, South-West England, UK

Course Description:

The south-west coast of England is famous for its rolling landscapes and its spectacular exposures of folded sedimentary strata. This field trip covers an almost complete stratigraphic section from the Devonian to the Cenozoic, with examples of almost every major depositional environment: deltaic and marine sandstones and shales, conglomerates, alluvial fans, lake sediments, fluvial and aeolian red beds, and restricted, shallow marine, pelagic and freshwater limestones.

This field trip can also be delivered in conjunction with our courses on Clastic Reservoir Geology, Fluvial-deltaic Depositional Systems, and Carbonate Reservoir Geology.
