Structural Geology

Identify and interpret different structural styles in their tectonic setting using geologic maps, cross sections, seismic and well log data. Analyze and predict potential trapping configurations based on the structural style. Evaluate the effect of structural style on the overall petroleum system. Upon completing the course, the learner will be able to: use surface maps, subsurface maps, cross sections and logs to identify and interpret structural styles, predict the potential types of faults and folds associated with a structural style, understand key characteristics of different types of faults and folds, and determine different trapping mechanisms which result from different structural styles.
