Description: This is a five day trip that takes place in northwestern New Mexico. The trip is intended for students with strong interests in sedimentology and stratigraphy and focuses on field methods in interpretation of clastic sedimentary deposits in terms of their depositional environment, sequence stratigraphic occurrence and reservoir and source rock potential. The field area includes four different basins, which provides further opportunity for discussion of sedimentary basin evolution. The course also includes reading assignments and class presentations on topics related to the trip. Repeatable for Credit.
