"Petroleum Exploration in Fold and Thrust Belts - and Beyond" 
-Dr. Peter Jones.

SUMMARY: This course deals with the practical problems that exploration geologists and geophysicists encounter in their daily work in structurally complex areas. Problems include log correlation, interpretation, and reinterpretation of geologic and geophysical data to create new exploration or exploitation possibilities. The Structural Source Book (300+ pages) contains chapters on fault systems, folds, duplex structures, gravity driven structures, mud volcanoes, inversion tectonics, and exploration methods, and is illustrated with many practical examples from different continents.  Hundreds of 35mm slides are used to illustrate various topics within the PowerPoint presentation.  They include aerial views of structures taken by Dr. Jones from his own aircraft specifically for the course. Workshop problems include both actual and simulated structural problems of petroleum geology. Although some topics of structural Geology may not be covered during the 3 days of the course, all aspects of the science are covered in the Structural Source Book that is provided to each participant as a resource for years to come.
