Abstract

Source to Sink: The Creation and Sorting of Clastic Reservoirs
With Duncan MacGregor, MacGeology

One-day course on Tuesday 8th January 2019, 9am – 5pm

Source to sink has become a hot topic in recent years, particularly in the regional analysis of turbidite plays, as it has been realised that the occurrence of economic reservoirs is often dependant on the geological composition of the hinterland and on the supply and sorting from a large drainage system.  Past topographies, marine currents and climates clearly also exert strong controls. This day course will explore all the various techniques that can be used to reconstruct drainage systems and their likely sedimentary products. It will  emphasise the need for the use of multiple techniques applied to an integrated study of both source and sink rather than the single techniques commonly applied over just the source . Case studies will be examined from the Nile, East and West Africa, Brazil, Guyana, the Mississippi system, the North Sea and West of Shetlands.
