Several new education opportunities have been added to the AAPG calendar -- for both the classroom and beautiful outdoor settings -- and now is the time to add them to your schedule in the next few months.
- First up is our new course on “Application of Structural Geology in Prospecting in Thrusted and Extended Terrains,” taught by Charles Kluth and Ronald Nelson.
The spectacular outcrops in and around Jackson Hole, Wyo., provide the backdrop for this exciting new course, being held July 31-Aug. 4. One full day will be spent in the field to illustrate the various structure patterns discussed in class.
Full course details can be found at www.aapg.org/education/shortcourse/details.cfm.
- Following the great success of our Winter Education Conference, we’ve added a Fall Education Conference, with courses centered around the theme of “Deepwater Exploration.” This five-day conference will take place in Houston on Sept. 11-15, and includes six courses to choose from, including:
- Interpretation of 3-D Seismic Data.
- Risk Analysis of Deep-Water Exploration Prospects.
- Deepwater Salt Tectonics.
For the complete list of courses, descriptions and registration details, go to www.aapg.org/education/fec.cfm.
- Another new field seminar also scheduled for September is on “Deepwater Siliciclastic Reservoirs.”
This seminar will be led by Stephan Graham and Don Lowe, from Stanford University, and is based on a trip originally held as an AAPG Hedberg Field Conference.
The dates for this trip are Sept. 17-22, and you can find out all the other specifics on our Web site at www.aapg.org/education/fieldseminars/details.cfm.
- Several online courses remain available during the coming holiday season. Details on the IOL modules and our other online courses can be found at www.aapg.org/education/online/.
- If some of your support staff need to know a little more about geology before diving into those fall projects with you, they can take advantage of the Aug. 29-31 offering in Houston of Norman Hyne’s popular course on “Basic Petroleum Geology for Non-Geologists,” co-sponsored by AAPG and the University of Tulsa’s Continuing Engineering and Science Education (CESE) Department.
