Seismic Interpretation in Fold-and-Thrust Belts: Field Trip to the Southern Canadian Rocky Mountain Foreland

23-29 June 2016
  |  
Calgary, Alberta, Canada

This structural field course in the Front Ranges of the Canadian Rockies focuses on relating outcrop to seismic expressions of compressive structural styles that are common in fold-and-thrust belts and deepwater passive margins (toe thrust belts) worldwide. Course topics include seismic interpretation of thrust and reverse faults, detachment surfaces, fault-bend folds, fault-propagation folds, detachment folds, growth structures, wedge structures, and imbricate structures. The course offers an extensive "atlas-style" guidebook with seismic examples from petroleum basin throughout the world, as well as instructional materials and exercises on quantitative structural interpretation of seismic data. Each day will be spent visiting three to five field locations, where new concepts will be introduced and applied in seismic interpretation projects.

Participants stay at the University of Calgary Kananaskis Field Station, in Kananaskis Country, Alberta, Canada, about an hour drive from Banff and two-hour drive from Calgary. The geology is extraordinary, and the scenery and wildlife are tremendous.

All participants are responsible for making their own travel arrangements to Calgary (you will be provided with arrival and departure details at least 30 days prior to the start of the trip).
