In-person: NSRG and FORCE presents Shallow sedimentology and implications for offshore infrastructure and renewable industries seminar

Shallow sedimentology

NSRG and FORCE sed+ strat group present a seminar that focuses on the sedimentology and stratigraphy of the shallow offshore and how this impacts offshore infrastructure and renewable industries offshore. Don't miss out on this great event.

Date Time Duration Register by Location
30. Nov 2022 10:00 1 Day 23. Nov 2022 Odin - NPD




The shallow focus is a different view from often is the focus in oil and gas, and we hope that the sed+strat community can broaden its knowledge and experience. The seminar will also be a great event for networking between students, researchers and industry (oil and gas, and renewables) – a great event to learn and to catch up before Christmas.
