Sedimentology Course 2015

Participants will be able to view a number of the Petroleum Exploration Society of Great Britain (PESGB) cores that are stored by Iron Mountain (c 700 ft ) and which represent a wide range of ages and depositional environments.

Participants will be able to view a number of the PESGB cores that are stored by Iron Mountain (c 700 ft ) and which represent a wide range of ages and depositional environments.  During this informal course participants will be helped with the identification and significance of sedimentary structures and trace fossils.  They will be shown how to produce quick descriptions of the cores and will be encouraged to develop their own interpretations for the intervals being studied and to contribute to the resulting discussions.
