Advanced Offshore Structural Geology

James N. Kellogg Ph.D.
Descripción del instructor

Dr. James N. Kellogg, is a Professor in the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences, Director of the Andean Geophysical Laboratory, at the University of South Carolina, (AndeanGeophysical.com) and is Editor-In-Chief of the Journal of South American Earth Sciences. Jim pursued geophysical and structural studies of the northern Andes, funded by the Venezuelan Ministry of Energy and Mines, for his M.A. (1978) and Ph.D. (1981) in geology and geophysics at Princeton University. In 1987 he joined the faculty of the University of South Carolina as professor of applied geophysics. His principal research interests include geodetic, gravity and tectonic studies of active margins and the Andean orogenic belt where he has worked for the last 30 years. He was Principal Investigator for the GEGEO (Guinea Equatorial GEOscience) Program, the Central and South America (CASA) GPS Geodesy Project, and the Colombia, Peru, and Bolivia Geophysical Projects. Dr. Kellogg’s research has been published in over 60 peer-reviewed articles.

ABOUT THE COURSE

 

COURSE OBJECTIVE

Students will learn advanced structural interpretation skills through hands-on mapping of offshore geologic structures. Exercises will include application of the “kink method” of volume-balanced interpretations to extensional and compressional marine structures and the evolution of salt structures. In optional final project, students interpret 3-D volumes and time slices in an offshore exploration environment.

 

  • Learn the basic principals of balanced geologic interpretations of marine structures.
  • Recognize and interpret compressional (fault-bend folds and fault propagation folds) and extensional structures (roll over anticlines).
  • Interpret evolution of marine salt structures.
  • Learn how to interpret 3D volumes and time slices.
