ACE FT 11 | Deepwater Deposits of the Pennsylvanian Ouachita Trough: Fans, Faults and Seafloor Failures  
Little Rock, Arkansas, United States
6-8 April 2017

The objective of this field trip is to examine the deposits of an upper slope and slope canyon to deep basin floor deepwater depositional system developing along a Pennsylvanian-age fold and thrust belt called the Ouachita Trough. The units under study are part of the Stanley Group, Jackfork Group and the overlying Atoka Group.

ACE FT 07 | Unconventional Source Rock Reservoir Field Seminar:  Eagle Ford Group (West Texas)  
Houston, Texas, United States
5-8 April 2017
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 10 | Modern Galveston Island and the Brazos River Delta as Reservoir Analogs  
Houston, Texas, United States
6 April 2017

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.
