Marcellus & Utica in the Field: Northern Appalachian Basin

03 June, 2010
Who Should Attend
This course is ideal for geologists, geophysicists, engineers, and other energy professionals who want to learn about how faults and fractures affect sedimentary units, including black shales (Marcellus, etc.) in the northern Appalachian Basin of New York State. A mini-virtual field trip, this e-symposium will allow geoscientists, engineers, and others to examine faults and fractures in carbonates, black shales, and coarser clastics as they occur in the northern Appalachian Basin. In addition, this e-symposium is a perfect preparation for individuals who plan to attend a field seminar in the region.
Objectives
Course Content

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to describe faults and fractures in carbonates, black shales, and coarser clastics as they occur in the northern Appalachian Basin.

Key Concepts:

  1. Examine the characteristics of faults and fractures that affect the sedimentary units (including black shales such as the Marcellus) in the northern Appalachian Basin of New York State;
  2. Examine the tectonics that led to the formation of the structures in the northern Appalachian Basin and the adjacent Appalachian Orogen;
  3. Examine slides from field trips that demonstrate faults and fractures in carbonates, black shale, and coarser clastics.

Structure

The one hour live portion will be followed by a full day of independent study (not a live event). The one-hour live e-symposium can be accessed from any computer anywhere in the world using a high-speed internet connection. After the event is over, you will receive via email information about accessing the asynchronous segment (not live) which consists of your independent study materials, to be accessed and studied at any time. You will be able to email responses to the readings, along with your study question answers for CEU credit (if you sign up for the extended package).

Recording of original webinar, packet of independent study reading materials, PDF of original PowerPoint presentation by FTP download. (Original presentation date: June 3, 2010.) Some materials will also sent by e-mail.
