E-125 - Sedimentology & Sequence Stratigraphy Workshop

  • Geologists, geophysicists working in multidisciplinary-team dedicated to exploration.
  • This course provides a practical, comprehensive understanding of new concepts and methods applied in stratigraphy, sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy analysis.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • review fundamentals of main depositional environments,
  • understand and apply sequence stratigraphy concepts and methods,
  • identify sequences on seismic lines, and interpret core and log data with regard to stratigraphy.
  • The course requires a good grasp of fundamentals in stratigraphy and in sedimentology, with a first experience in seismic interpretation.
Ways and means
  • Lectures, exercises, hands-on sessions on real case studies.
