About

The Basin Studies and Petroleum Geoscience programme at The University of Manchester focuses on fundamental studies of Earth surface processes and sedimentary basins, and their application to petroleum geoscience.

Overview

Programme description

Many group members in the Basin Studies and Petroleum Geoscience programme at The University of Manchester have industrial experience in the petroleum geoscience sector and are actively collaborating with industry on various research projects linked to understanding the structural and sedimentary evolution of sedimentary basins, 3D seismic interpretation and reservoir modelling.

The group has dedicated state-of-the-art facilities for digital outcrop data collection and analysis (including terrestrial laser scanning) and for the interpretation, modelling and visualisation of 3D seismic data. We also have dedicated facilities for numerical modelling, in addition to central University HPC facilities.

The group runs several major industrial consortia including the rifts Analogues project (TRAP) and the North Africa Research Group (NARG).

Programme Structure

Research areas include:
  • Processes controlling land- and sea-scape evolution
  • Seismic and sequence stratigraphy
  • Sedimentary basin tectonics
  • Clastic and carbonate sedimentology and environmental change
