2018 AAPG Siliciclastics Theme

 

Theme 1 (Siliciclastics) covers the full range of siliciclastic sedimentary systems, and the plays and reservoirs that they host. Of particular interest are submissions that emphasize the novel application of analogs, analytical tools, modelling methods, and big data analytics to aid understanding and prediction of siliciclastic reservoir distribution, character, and quality.

Theme Chairs: Gary Hampson (Imperial College London) and Zane Jobe (Colorado School of Mines)
