Use plant and animal fossils from cuttings, cores or outcrops to distinguish among rock units, determine their ages and infer the sedimentary environment. Upon completing this course, the user will be able to: describe the different classes of microfossils and their use, infer sedimentary environments based on occurrences, identification and classification of microfossils, use microfossils as a basis for estimating the ages of rock units, demonstrate the use of abundance and diversity charts, and use microfossils as a basis for correlating rock units between two wells.
