This one-day course provides an introduction to strategies, tactics, and tools that can help you more effectively evaluate opportunities, avoid pitfalls, and improve results in your geotechnical decision-making. Numerous examples and exercises will change your perspectives on the everyday challenges we face and provide you with techniques to surmount them.
This two-day short course is designed to teach the principles, concepts, and methodologies of sequence stratigraphy. Sequence stratigraphy is a methodology that uses a hierarchy of stratal surfaces to subdivide the stratigraphic record. This methodology allows the identification of coeval facies, documents the time-transgressive nature of classic lithostratigraphic units, and provides geoscientists with an additional way to analyze and subdivide the stratigraphic record. Using exercises that utilizes outcrop, core, well-log and seismic data, this course provides hands-on experience for learning sequence stratigraphy. The exercises include classic case studies from which many sequence stratigraphic concepts were originally developed.
