Arid Shallow- Marine Carbonate Environments in North-East England, UK

Content

The famous Permian rocks along the coast of north-east England comprise a sequence of limestone, anhydrite, halite and desert sands deposited when this region lay at around 20ºN. These outcrops give us a window on lagoonal, reef and platform carbonate depositional environments and processes, and illustrate the role of eustasy as a dominant control. Some of the units to be observed are equivalent to reservoir units of the Southern
North Sea hydrocarbon province.

This field trip can also be delivered in conjunction with our Carbonate Reservoir Geology and Integrated Sequence Stratigraphy courses.
