Field Seminars

Getting out in the field and being able to touch, see and feel the objects of your training makes for the best possible experience. Our field seminars are designed to maximize your time and travel with a combination of field work, lecture and class work.

AAPG Event Cancun Mexico 03 September, 2016 05 September, 2016 Member, Student, Field Trips, Conventions, Pre-Convention 8:00 AM 6:00 PM 10 May, 2016
Cancun, Mexico
3-5 September 2016

The objective of this field trip is to visit locations in the Mexican Caribbean Shore, to study recent sedimentary environments in carbonates related to coastal dunes, oolite sedimentation by eolian activity (eolinites), fracture systems in the Yucatan Platform, and their possible relationship with the formation of inlet, as well as modern sedimentary environments for the development of current reefs.

AAPG Event Columbia South Carolina United States 11 September, 2016 18 September, 2016 Sedimentology and Stratigraphy, Clastics, Regressive Deposits, Marine, Low Stand Deposits, High Stand Deposits 8:00 AM 8:00 PM 01 November, 2013
Columbia, South Carolina, United States
11-18 September 2016

This field seminar offers an excellent opportunity for the students to walk on a variety of modern terrigenous clastic depositional systems while observing sedimentary processes, modern sedimentary structures, and numerous trenches illuminating the three-dimensional architecture of each area.

Great Falls, Montana, United States
12-17 September 2016
The seminar will utilize traverses to examine multiple thrust sheets exposed in Sun River Canyon, the famous Teton Anticline, and an outstanding example of an exposed fractured reservoir along a fault‐propagated fold in Mississippian carbonates as Swift Reservoir. Participants will examine the mechanics of fracturing, folding, and faulting in thrust belt terrains, identify and discuss new ideas regarding the geometry and kinematics of the development of thrust belts, compare seismic interpretation with outcrop examples, and analyze stratigraphic concepts which are essential in the exploration of thrust belt targets.

AAPG Event Salt Lake City Utah United States 18 September, 2016 25 September, 2016 Sedimentology and Stratigraphy, Carbonates, Clastics, Lacustrine Deposits, Oil Shale, Geochemistry and Basin Modeling, Source Rock, Fluvial Deltaic Systems, Petrophysics and Well Logs, Geophysics, Seismic 8:00 AM 8:00 PM 01 November, 2013
Salt Lake City, Utah, United States
18-25 September 2016

Participants will learn a specific and comprehensive methodology for finding and developing conventional and unconventional oil and gas resources associated with lake deposits. The seminar will start with the Quaternary Bonneville basin in Utah, to build familiarity with lacustrine depositional processes. Participants then examine world-famous exposures of organic-rich mudstone, fluvial sandstone, and carbonate microbialite facies in Wyoming.

AAPG Event Grand Junction Colorado United States 28 September, 2016 05 October, 2016 Sedimentology and Stratigraphy, Clastics, Sequence Stratigraphy, Fluvial Deltaic Systems, Estuarine Deposits, Marine, Incised Valley Deposits, High Stand Deposits, Low Stand Deposits, Petrophysics and Well Logs 8:00 AM 8:00 PM 01 November, 2013
Grand Junction, Colorado, United States
28 September - 5 October 2016

Participants will learn through the use of spectacular outcrops, subsurface datasets, and stratigraphic modeling how these systems tracts and key surfaces (flooding surfaces and sequence boundaries) may be recognized.

AAPG Event Naples Italy 01 October, 2016 07 October, 2016 Sedimentology and Stratigraphy, Carbonates, Structure, Fold and Thrust Belts, Engineering, Reservoir Characterization, Carbonate Platforms 5:00 PM 8:00 PM 04 November, 2013
Naples, Italy
1-7 October 2016

The main part of the field seminar will focus on the description of the fractured carbonates and the extrapolation from the outcrop observations to the subsurface for building geologically plausible reservoir models.

AAPG Event Oamaru New Zealand 16 March, 2017 16 March, 2017 14 March, 2017 16 March, 2017 8:00 AM 8:00 PM 01 June, 2016
