Sedimentology and Petroleum Geology

Sedimentology and Petroleum Geology

The sedimentary geology program focuses primarily on diverse aspects of clastic basin analysis in a variety of tectonic settings. Studies are broadly integrative with other members of the faculty here and elsewhere. In cooperation with the Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute, there is also an emphasis on aspects of petroleum geology concerning reservoir analysis and carbon sequestration. Approaches emphasize the combination of observations at outcrop, subsurface and seismic scales and encourage multidisciplinary approaches. Presently there are a variety of projects being pursued in the United States, particularly the Rocky Mountain region, South America, Europe and Asia.
