Shale Sedimentology and Sequence Stratigraphy Short Course

“Bookings now closed – to be added to the waitlist for the course, please contact Sandy Menpes at sandymenpes@bigpond.com”

Presented by: Juergen Schieber

A two-day Shale Sedimentology and Sequence Stratigraphy short course will be held at the Tonsley Core Library on 16th and 17th August. The short course will combine both lectures and practical sessions. Lectures will cover shale facies variability, classification and description, flume studies of shale deposition and erosion, early diagenesis and microbial processing, and shale sequence stratigraphy. The course will also include a lecture on “what makes a good shale gas candidate” from a sedimentology and diagenesis perspective. Practical sessions will include examination of a selection of shale cores from several different basins:

  • Arckaringa Basin (Early Permian organic rich marine shales),
  • Officer Basin (Neoproterozoic marine shales including Acraman impact layer),
  • Cooper Basin (Early Permian lacustrine shales),
  • Eromanga Basin (Cretaceous marine shales)
  • Otway Basin (Jurassic/Early Cretaceous lacustrine shales).
