Basin Studies and Petroleum Geoscience / Engineering

Our research incorporates all aspects of the sedimentary basin system, from source to sink and from micro- to macro-scales. Projects integrate structural, sedimentological and geomorphic studies and span the fundamental and petroleum geosciences. We use state-of-the-art acquistion, modelling and interpretation tools on a wide range of landscape, outcrop and subsurface datasets. The Basins Group Newsletter 2016 provides an outlook on current research and achievements within the Group.
