A 2 to 5 day field course discussing the facies and diagenesis of 4th and 5th order sequences in different tectonic settings.
The Derbyshire carbonate platform developed during the rift phase of Carboniferous basin evolution. We will discuss sedimentary sequences formed in platform margin and interior settings under the influence of rifting and glacio-eustasy.
The seismic sequence stratigraphy of the sub-surface Dinantian can be directly matched to facies type and geometry seen at outcrop. The following topics will be addressed:
The field trip can be run over two to five days depending on clients’ requirements. Clients have used this trip for:
