GWL talk: 20th June 2019

June’s talk explores the fascinating coastal sabkha of Abu Dhabi under the expert guidance of Stephen Lokier. In his presentation, “Application of a Recent Analogue to the Ancient Petroleum System: A Virtual Field Trip to the coastline of the Tethys Ocean”, Stephen will describe the coastal sabkha system of Abu Dhabi, discussing the sedimentological characteristics and preservation potential of each of the depositional settings and comparing them to equivalent facies preserved within the ancient petroleum system of the Jurassic Arab Formation. With over 18 years of applied experience in the field of carbonate sedimentology, many of those in the Middle East, Stephen is extremely well qualified to show us this classic – and endangered – geological setting.
