Field Seminar

ACE FT 02 | Upper Cambrian Microbial Carbonate Mounds in Central Texas (Mason County)  
Houston, Texas, United States
30 March - 2 April 2017

In Conjunction with AAPG 2017 Annual Convention & Exhibition (ACE)
This field trip to the Cambrian microbial facies in the Mason, Texas, area will highlight several aspects of microbialite reservoirs including their composition, size and geometry. The Mason, Texas, outcrops afford spectacular views of both cross-section and plan views of microbialite facies, offering an opportunity for a truly 3-D view of the architecture of these potential reservoirs.

ACE FT 10 | Modern Galveston Island and the Brazos River Delta as Reservoir Analogs  
Houston, Texas, United States
6 April 2017

In Conjunction with AAPG 2017 Annual Convention & Exhibition (ACE)
This field trip focuses on the late Quaternary depositional systems of the upper Texas coast, including the Brazos River and its wave-dominated delta, the Oyster Creek meanderbelt, Follets Island, the San Luis Pass tidal delta, and Galveston Island. The trip will emphasize the physical processes associated with shaping these various depositional environments, and will discuss the stratigraphic occurrence of sand bodies associated with these coastal systems. There will be a focus on linking physical processes to the geological record, and also describing the sequence stratigraphic framework of the upper Texas coastal systems.

ACE FT 07 | Unconventional Source Rock Reservoir Field Seminar:  Eagle Ford Group (West Texas)  
Houston, Texas, United States
5-8 April 2017

In Conjunction with AAPG 2017 Annual Convention & Exhibition (ACE)
This Field Trip offers the opportunity to examine the Eagle Ford Group in West Texas. This hiking trip provides a unique opportunity to visit locations on private property with restricted access.

ACE FT 03 | Fluvial and Coastal Clastic Sedimentology and Ichnology in Modern Environments and Core  
Houston, Texas, United States
31 March - 1 April 2017

In Conjunction with AAPG 2017 Annual Convention & Exhibition (ACE)
This course combines detailed investigations of modern fluvial, estuarine, deltaic, shoreface, and tidal inlet depositional environments with subsurface examples in core to provide participants with a more holistic understanding of the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of shallow marine and fluvial reservoirs.

Short Course

ACE SC 16 | Seismic Geomorphology and Seismic Stratigraphy:  Extracting Geologic Insights from 3-D Seismic Data  
Houston, Texas, United States
2 April 2017

In Conjunction with AAPG 2017 Annual Convention & Exhibition (ACE)
The application of seismic geomorphology and seismic stratigraphy to exploration and field development is a natural consequence of the advent of high-quality and increasingly more affordable and widespread 3D seismic data currently available.
