SEPM Carbonate Research Group 

Carbonate

Who is this community?

The carbonate research group focuses on carbonate rocks, namely limestones and dolomites. Discussions include trends in facies modelling, isotope geochemistry, carbonate mineralogy, non-marine carbonate depositional environments and carbonate deposition and diagenesis.

Upcoming Meetings

SEPM Carbonate Research Group Meeting will be announced at a later date.

There is a two-day carbonate workshop planned prior to IMAGE
Advances in the Understanding and Interpretation of Carbonates

Date: Saturday and Sunday, August 26-27, 2023

Location: Houston, TX

SEPM will sponsor this two-day event scheduled immediately before the 2023 International Meeting for Applied Geoscience & Energy (IMAGE). It will include invited speakers focusing on key carbonate themes and additional presentations covering broader research topics and student projects. The format will encourage strong discussion with ample time for Q&A, and participation from a diverse mix of academia and industry, professionals and students, domestic and international is planned. To be as inclusive as possible, the registration fee will be as low as possible.

Invited oral sessions focus on themes that highlight recent advances in carbonate research:

From Modern Sediments to Deep-Time Carbonate Stratigraphy (Keynote by Charles Kerans)

Deep Water Carbonates (Keynote by Gregor Eberli)

Visualization and Quantification of Carbonates (Keynote by Volker Vahrenkamp)

Carbonate Diagenesis and Pore Systems (Keynote by Cathy Hollis)
