Field Seminar

ACE FT 01 | Unconventional Carbonate Mud Depositional Environments and Facies Distribution: A Modern Perspective  
Miami, Florida, United States
26 March - 1 April 2017

Carbonate rocks make up the majority of reservoirs being explored and exploited in unconventional resource plays. This trip will spend five days exploring a variety of modern, mud-dominated carbonate settings in South Florida, where the elements influencing the deposition of these unique strata will be observed first-hand and used as learning points for similar ancient deposits.

ACE FT 08 | Revised Stratigraphic Framework for the Cutoff Formation and Implications for Upper Bone Spring and Avalon Reservoirs  
El Paso, Texas, United States
5-8 April 2017

The field trip will include stops at Shumard Canyon and Bone Canyon to observe the scale and internal architecture of submarine channels incising the bedrock of the relict platform. Other field-trip stops will include Stratotype Canyon, Black Stove Canyon, and Rest Area Gully to observe basin-restricted carbonate and siliclcastic sediment gravity flow deposits, carbonate channel-levee complexes, failure scours associated with the downslope transport of olistostromal blocks, and thick (>50 m) accumulations of recumbently folded deposits associated with these failure events.

ACE FT 04 | Inside NASA Space Center Houston  
Houston, Texas, United States
1 April 2017
A tour of the NASA Space Center Houston with Harrison H. Schmitt the only geologist to walk on the moon. This trip seeks to provide an understanding of NASA's role in exploring the geologic characterization of the solar system.
