DEEP WATER RESERVOIRS  An Integrated Course and Field Seminar, Tabernas and Sorbas Basins, Spain
2019, November 6-10 Course Leaders: Dr. Steve Cossey & Dr. Kick Kleverlaan 5-Day Field Course and Field Seminar Cost: €3000 per person (includes tuition, final group dinner, guidebooks, ground transportation)
In the field, participants will study outcrops in the Tabernas and Sorbas Basins and learn the stratigraphy, shape and scale of submarine fan bodies in a small, active basin. The outcrops will illustrate the types of geological heterogeneity that occur in deep water reservoirs, as well as the value of sequence stratigraphic approaches, paleobathymetric analyses and structural settings for predicting the large-scale character of fan deposits. In the classroom, participants will learn the characteristics of architectural elements in deep water reservoirs (sheets, channels, levees, contourites, mass transport complexes) as well as deep water processes, sequence stratigraphy, biostratigraphy, sedimentary remobilization  This instruction incorporates new observations and has been presented around the world to over 1500 geoscientists, engineers, and managers.
This course and field seminar will be based in the small village of Carboneras, just east of Almeria, Spain. Each day will consist of field stops in the morning through late-afternoon and classroom presentations in the early evening. The field seminar will be led by Dr. Kick Kleverlaan and the classroom course will be taught by Dr. Steve Cossey.
