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 COURSE

 

COURSE OBJECTIVE

This Advanced Structural Geology course is useful for exploration geologists and geophysicists. The conservation of rock volume can be an important constraint in evaluating the feasibility of a geological interpretation. Volume-balanced cross sections are especially useful in structurally complex areas. Learn to evaluate common mistakes in structural interpretations. Construct balanced cross sections in a “hands on” workshop emphasizing the kink-bend model, fault-bend folding, and fault-propagation folding. Some exercises will involve the use of computer software for forward modeling.

 

  • Students will learn to evaluate the feasability of geologic models.
  • Learn how to construct models of fault-bend folds and fault-propagation folds with the kink method.
  • Learn to construct “volume-balanced” cross sections.
  • Students learn to apply kink method to seismic interpretation.
  • Exercises may involve the use of Move or GeoSec geologic modeling software.
