Held on alternate Fridays in the Spring and Fall, the Master Class consists of a writing workshop, critical review of literature, discussion of current research topics and reports on graduate student research in quantitative structural geology, geomechanics and structural diagenesis.
Meetings last about 2 hrs and the venue is an off-campus location. See the e-mail alerts for last minute plans. Contact Steve Laubach to get on the email list.
Structural Diagenesis Curriculum
The SDI supports creation of a curriculum that merges the disciplines of structural geology and low temperature sedimentary geochemistry. The following is a list of the proposed program.
- Structural Diagenesis: Linked Mechanical and Chemical Processes
- Brittle Structure
- Sedimentary Geochemistry
- Reservoir Geomechanics
- Naturally Fractured Reservoirs
- Experimental & Theoretical Rock Mechanics
- Deformation, Chemical Change, and Transfer Processes in the Upper Crust
- Reservoir Quality Modeling
- Basin Modeling
Fall 2009 Schedule
In Fall 2009, the Structural Diagenesis master Class (SDMC) will meet on Friday afternoons at the Bureau unless otherwise noted. The format this semester is a directed reading and discussion seminar.
Contact Peter Eichhubl or Steve Laubach for further information.
