"Cracking the Source” is the theme for this year’s Rocky Mountain Section meeting, slated July 20-22 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.
The theme is intended to focus on the source rocks of the Rocky Mountain area and their impact on the unconventional resources of the region.
The meeting, hosted by the Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists, will include over 100 presentations covering not only source rocks, but also other topics such as technologies used in the identification, characterization and exploitation of these reservoirs, and new insights on the structure and stratigraphy of the Rockies and beyond.
Presentations will range from oral to poster to core poster.
Also offered are four field trips, with one especially designed and offered for young professionals and students: It will tour the outcrops near the city with a focus on the region’s structure and stratigraphy.
The three other field trips, open to all geologists, are:
- One that focuses on the strata of the Eagle Basin.
- Two to study the Cretaceous and Paleozoic reservoir rocks, respectively, of the Denver Basin.
Those registering for the meeting before June 1 can save $100 in fees.
