Structural Diagenesis Field Symposium

Held every other year, and supported by grants from a private foundation, the Structural Diagenesis Field Symposium brings together a small group of key scientists in the area of fracture and diagenesis research to discuss cutting edge research issues on the outcrop.

The aim is to support cross-disciplinary scientific dialog on problems having an important societal impact. Participants include select scientists from industry, from The University of Texas at Austin and from other institutions, and a small group of outstanding students holding Field Symposium Fellowships.

The 2007 symposium, organized by Jon Olson, was held in NW Scotland. The 2009 symposium is being organized by Randy Marrett, and will be held in NW Argentina.
