2017 Conference of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists

April 8, 2017

The CoRE research group that I lead at Colorado School of Mines visited Houston, TX last week to attend the 100th conference of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG). It is an industry-focused scientific conference that brings together academia and industry to address basic and applied scientific problems for the petroleum industry. I include a few photos below to show some highlights from the conference.
