PESA WA: Applied high resolution sequence stratigraphy workshop – investigating Pleistocene sediments, Dalkeith foreshore

Friday, 18 March, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm (Australia/Perth time)

Free – $30.00

Guest Speaker(s): Robert Seggie

Robert worked as a petroleum geologist for over 40 years since graduating in geology.  He worked for BHP Petroleum, Oil Company of Australia, BMR (now GA), Santos, as a consultant, Woodside Energy and has now retired into an Adjunct Professor role at Curtin University together with some consulting.  Robert has been a successful explorer and a development/production geologist. His expertise includes high resolution sequence stratigraphy, structure, hydrodynamics, appraisal co-ordination, and commercial.  For over 20 years Robert focused on applying high resolution core based sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy to reservoir development and exploration as well as mentoring and improving outcomes for teams.  His current lines of research are into dinoturbation and the global tectonostratigraphy of the Triassic. He has run courses for AAPG, Nautilus, PESA and SPE, has published numerous papers, and presented and chaired at conferences.  He is a member of AAPG, and PESA and has held executive and editorial positions.

PESA WA invites you to join us for a late afternoon field trip to the Dalkeith foreshore on Friday 18th March. Robert Seggie will lead the field trip and workshop focusing on sequence stratigraphic relationships in the Pleistocene-aged Tamala Limestone outcrops. Afterwards, there will be a short debrief and Q&A session with our trip leader at the Captain Stirling Hotel.


Date: Friday, March 18th 2022

Time: 3:00pm – 5:00pm

Meet at the northern end of Point Resolution Reserve (Location 2 – use the path opposite the end of Beatrice Road).  See map below.

Followed by refreshments and discussion at the Captain Stirling Hotel, 80 Stirling Highway, Nedlands.  As per government requirements, proof of vaccination will be required to enter the Captain Sitrling Hotel.

During the course of the trip we will examine and log two sections at either end of the Dalkeith Foreshore, consider their sequence stratigraphic interpretation, possible correlations between them plus climatic and tectonstratigraphic implications of observations.  Given the state of the tides, you may end up with wet feet, so suitable footwear, such as crocs, is advised.  Bring a note book, hand lens, pencils and a tape measure!
