Attendees must be registered for the ACE meeting to attend.

Although the geometric complexity of the stratigraphic record has long-been noted, until recently, models have not existed to adequately address the three-dimensionality of the subsurface. This SEPM research symposium is aimed at directly addressing three-dimensional stratigraphic variability, particularly in the context of better characterizing sedimentary basins and hydrocarbon systems, and better understanding allogenic and autogenic controls on this variability. The symposium will include a diverse set of topics, and draw from outcrop, core, well-log, and seismic data, as well as from experimental studies, both physical and numerical.

Speakers:

  • Introductions
  • 8:05am - John Holbrook The Diachronous Sequence
  • 8:45am - Christopher Fielding Sequence Stratigraphy of Late Paleozoic Cyclothems; A Signal of Sediment Undersupply, Large-Magnitude Sea-Level Changes and Low Accommodation
  • 1:20pm - Charles KeransTemporal and Lateral Variability in Permian Shelf to Basin Systems of the Permian Basin
  • 2:00pm - Tetsuji Muto Recent Progress in Autostratigraphy: Autogenic Grade in the Context of Shelf Growth

Co-Chairs:

Ashley Harris, Andrew Madof, Wen Lin, Victorien Paumard, and Jinyu Zhang
