AAPG Event Barranquilla Atlántico Colombia 10 February, 2023 8:00 AM 5:00 PM 10 January, 2023
Barranquilla, Colombia
10 February 2023

Date: 10 February 2023
Time: 8:00am - 6:00pm
Trip Leaders: Camilo Montes and Felipe Lamus
Fee: Registration available during workshop registration
Fee Includes: Transportation, Lunch, Field Guide, Refreshments

The Sinú-San Jacinto Basin is a very promising petroleum basin in Colombian offshore and onshore. This fieldtrip has the potential of encouraging exploration activities in the region and trigger collaboration projects between industry and academia. The fieldtrip has the potential to gather people from different institutions and companies who might be able to identify problems and discuss potential solutions. This could be the inception of collaboration projects that will enhance the geological knowledge of the Sinú-San Jacinto Basin.

The main objective of this field trip is to identify the main outcropping lithologies and structures in the northern part of the Sinú-San Jacinto onshore basin.

Work Plan

Barranquilla - Tubará - Juan de Acosta - Boca Tocino Beach - Totumo Volcano - Galerazamba: Structural styles and depositional environments of Cenozoic rocks

What to Bring

The field trip fee includes transportation, refreshment, lunch, and field guide. Participants may bring cash (in pesos) to purchase additional snacks, souvenirs and to pay the admission to the Totumo mud volcano (if times allow it).

Participants should bring hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, and insect repellent as well as comfortable walking shoes. Those who plan to take a bath in the mud volcano should bring an old bathing suit, towel and sandals.

Join a SIG

The function of the Visiting Geoscientist Program SIG is to provide college and university students worldwide a balanced picture of geosciences in the petroleum, energy minerals, and environmental industries; provide information about careers in the geosciences; present a positive image of a geoscience professional; and encourage geoscience career options for young scientists of high caliber. These goals will be achieved through direct student contact during college and university visits by active geoscientists. To maintain active status as a VG, each committee member must complete at least one visit per fiscal year. This program is funded through the generosity of the Visiting Geoscientists, their companies, the AAPG Foundation and AAPG.
