Field Seminar

ACE FT 06 | Shelf to Basin Sequence Framework and Facies Architecture of a Cretaceous Carbonate Ramp: Late Albian Maverick Intrashelf Basin, Southwest Texas  
Houston, Texas, United States
5-10 April 2017

This six day Pecos River Canyon trip uses the superb and remarkably laterally continuous outcrops of this upper Albian ramp-to-intrashelf basin profile to develop a process-based, sequence stratigraphic framework for analogous Cretaceous reservoir systems surrounding the Bab intrashelf basin in the Middle East.

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.

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.

Short Course

ACE SC 06 | Basin and Petroleum System Modeling in Conventional and Unconventional Petorleum (ADD) Exploration - American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)  
Houston, Texas, United States
1-2 April 2017

This course provides an introduction to Petroleum Systems Modeling (PSM) in Exploration, with both conventional and unconventional examples.

Houston, Texas, United States
6-7 April 2017

This course is designed to provide the industry geologist and engineer with a working knowledge of fracture characteristics and variability as they affect production in hydrocarbon reservoirs. This is a hands-on, applied course in fracture interpretation, description, analysis, and effects.
