Enrollment by the permission of the instructor only. An introduction to basin analysis techniques applicable to the petroleum industry, with an emphasis on sequence stratigraphic concepts and seismic stratigraphy. Alternating years will highlight different aspects of petroleum basin analysis, including field-based sequence stratigraphy and workstation-based interpretation of seismic data. Projects will cover a diverse industry dataset (outcrop observations, seismic, well-log, core, bulk and organic geochemical, and outcrop data) to advise on exploration strategies in established and "unknown" basins. Previous or concurrent registration in PICP I is strongly recommended. Meets with GEO 6520.
