Course Description & Objectives: 

Basin analysis involves making an interpretation of the formation, evolution, architecture and fill of a sedimentary basin by examining geological variables associated with the basin. Basin analysis provides a foundation for extrapolating known information into unknown regions in order to predict the nature of the basin where evidence is not available. This can assist the exploration and development of energy, mineral and other resources (e.g. water, brines, etc.) that may occur within sedimentary basins.

Learning Outcomes: 

By the end of this course students should be able to:

  • Describe the elements that make up the sedimentary basin.
  • Explain the paleogeographic architecture and evolution.
  • Use a range of methods for determining controls on sedimentary basin development from geophysical modeling to sequence stratigraphic analysis.
