Many group members 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 Basin Studies & Petroleum Geoscience program is offered by The University of Manchester.
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 Faculty of Science and Engineering is offering a number of scholarships to both UK and overseas students.
Our research is focused on:
- Controlling land- and sea-scape evolution,
- Seismic and sequence stratigraphy,
- Sedimentary basin tectonics,
- Clastic and carbonate sedimentology
- Environmental change.
