REVIEW: Berks, Buck & Oxon Meeting
Sequence Stratigraphy – Consume responsibly!
By Jay Sahota, Jay Sahota & Associates, UK, Chamonix and Chandigarh
Some observers may well think that there as many views on where sequence stratigraphy lies – between being a blessing or a curse, as there are geoscientists. Hence this talk by Dr Pamela Sansom was very much welcomed by the PESGB audience at the Stable bar of the Three Tuns pub.
The audience were treated to a quick outline of history, then discussion of the various schools of thought that have evolved since 1977 to date, along with examples of its use in the search for hydrocarbons. A lot of thought was packed into this well illustrated and highly interesting presentation. The audience greatly benefitted hearing from a highly experienced practitioner. It is perhaps a somewhat sobering experience to be updated that all attempts at some sort of standardisation have failed. The analogy of sequence stratigraphy and the effects of several bottles of wine was most appropriate.
