Cancun, Mexico
10-11 September 2016

This two-day short course will provide an overview of salt tectonics in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM), including both the US and Mexican portions of the basin. It will cover a range of topics ranging from the fundamental mechanics of salt-related deformation to the regional distribution of different structural styles, including relevant aspects of extensional, contractional, vertical, and allochthonous salt tectonics. It is intended for geoscientists with different levels of expertise, from those new to the GoM or salt tectonics to those with years of experience in exploring in this complex basin.
