Oil and Gas Technical training > Micro Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) - Carbonate and Carbonate/ Evaporite Sequence Stratigraphy

About this Micro Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

Carbonate sediments react very differently to clastic sediments during changes in relative sea-level. Creation in the basin of deposition means that varying accommodation space can control the position of the carbonate factory and thereby the distribution of facies and the character of the diagenetic overprint.

The identification of surfaces and sequences is key to understanding the deposition and modelling of carbonate sediments and the non-sequence gaps between sediment packages.

This Micro VILT examines key changes in carbonate sedimentation patterns and discusses how they can be much better understood by applying our understanding of controls on deposition and their response to relative sea-level change.
