University of Aberdeen Stories

 

Nick Schofield is a Reader/Assoc. Prof. in Igneous and Petroleum Geology. He specializes in the seismic and field interpretation of intrusive and extrusive sequences in volcanic terranes and their interaction with hydrocarbon systems.

He is at the forefront of allowing the industry to understand the challenging volcanic geology in the subsurface around the UKCS, Atlantic Margin, East Africa and Australasia
