Register today for the upcoming Field Seminar: Strike-Slip Tectonics, Tectono-Stratigraphy And Petroleum Systems Of The Levant Restraining Bend In Lebanon that will take place in Beirut, Lebanon from 26-28 April 2018. Don’t miss out! Seats are limited.

The purpose of this activity is to investigate on a first-hand the growth and evolution of strike-slip systems by visiting key locations along the Lebanese restraining bend.

The field trip leaders Fadi Nader, IFP Energies Nouvelles and Ramadan Ghalayini, Independent Consultant, Lebanese Petroleum Administration will guide attendees in investigating the growth and evolution of strike-slip systems by visiting key locations along the area.

The itinerary will include:

Day 1: General overview of the stratigraphy and geology of Lebanon with a brief description of the LFS and the regional evolution of the Levant region. We will visit northern Mount Lebanon to see the surface expression of the Yammouneh fault and examine pull-apart basins observed across the path of the LFS.

Day 2: Overview and investigation of the E-W lateral strike-slip faults in northern Lebanon by examining their surface expression, their geological history and evolution through time. In the afternoon, we will examine the interaction between the strike-slip faults and anticlines and discuss analogue examples from seismic data offshore Lebanon.

Day 3: Visit of southern Mount Lebanon to examine the along-strike structural style variation of Mount Lebanon. We will have a look at the large Niha overfold and investigate the role of transpression in the uplift of the southern segment of Mount Lebanon. We will review the structures of the Bekaa valley and reconstruct its geological evolution.
