Fieldwork in Mallorca
Our Mallorca field course gives an opportunity to study carbonate depositional processes, environments and diagenetic processes using a young, well-preserved and well-constrained depositional system. The field course emphasises the petroleum geology of the area, putting field outcrops into the context of reservoir, source, seal and petroleum system analysis
Did you know?Excellent opportunities to study large scale stratal geometries of the Miocene Llucmajor classic rimmed carbonate platform are provided by a boat trip.
More about Mallorca
Mallorca is a world-famous example of a young carbonate platform, but the island also has excellent examples of Triassic fluvio-aeolian sandstones, some of the best-preserved Pleistocene aeolianites, Tertiary turbidites and black shale source facies.
