ST40 CD - Paleogeography, Paleoclimate, and Source Rocks
A research conference on paleogeography, paleoclimate, and source rocks was held in Paris in July 1992 as a special meeting co-sponsored by the AAPG and the Institute Français du Pétrole (IFP). The goal of the research conference was to evaluate current understanding of source rocks as a guide for petroleum exploration.
During the course of the conference, special emphasis was placed on paleoplates and paleogeographic reconstructions, paleoclimate recreation and modeling, global source rock distribution, depositional setting of organic-rich sediments, sequence stratigraphy, cyclostratigraphy, and molecular fossils.
Thirteen (13) papers are presented in this volume. The Conference (and this publication) focused on three main points:
