Biography

 

University of Aberdeen Stories

 

Nick Schofield is a Professor of 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 works heavily on oil and gas exploration in the basins West of Shetland.

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
