A sponsors’ field trip from 31st April to 5th May was run in NW Argentina. We focused on turbidite sheet systems, including:
- The effects of various controls such as flow magnitude, sand/mud ratio and basin size on reservoir architecture
- Various turbidite and non-turbidite facies within sheet systems (including clastic and carbonate ‘megabeds’), and their potential impact on reservoir connectivity
- The effect of local ponding on top of mass transport deposits, and the mass transport deposits themselves.
