Micropaleontology, Biostratigraphy, Paleobathymetry in Petroleum Basins of the North Sea, Norwegian Sea, offshore E. Canada and NW. Greenland

Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland GEUS

November 22-26, 2010


From 22-26 November 2010 the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS), in Copenhagen, Denmark will host the 5 days shortcourse ‘Micropaleontology, Biostratigraphy, Paleobathymetry in Petroleum Basins of the North Sea, Norwegian Sea, offshore E. Canada and NW. Greenland’.

The instructor is undersigned; Emma Sheldon and Caterina Morigi at GEUS are course coordinators.

The public course follows the same plan and outline as presented in Houston, Tx earlier this year, with Chevron hosting. Morning presentations (with a great many handouts) are followed by afternoon self work at the microscope with major and large micropaleontological reference collections for eastern Canada and offshore Norway.

A short review of the effective and enjoyable Houston course by Ron Waszczak, ConocoPhillips is attached File:NAMS News April2010.pdf. Attached to this email are also two pdf files with the File:Flyer Norway Canada Biostrat Shortcourse.pdf and File:Program Norway Canada Biostrat Shortcourse.pdf.

Handouts include a memory stick with a very large number of pdf files with important literature and atlas style plates with zonal markers. This includes many studies that today are difficult or impossible to obtain, directly relevant to offshore Canada, NW Greenland and offshore Norway (incl. Barents Sea) biostratigraphy and paleobathymetry. It is desirable to bring a small portable computer device to the course.

Deadline for application with undersigned is 15 October 2010.

A maximum of 15 professionals, academics and/or advanced graduate students can attend.
