The Geological Society of London is the UK national society for geoscience, providing support to over 10,000 members in the UK and overseas. Founded in 1807, we are the oldest geological society in the world.
This meeting is intended to bring together a diverse range of sedimentary geologists to foster a critical examination of the current state of the sequence stratigraphic model, and to highlight robust new methods, concepts and protocols that could evolve or maybe even potentially revolutionize stratigraphic understanding and prediction.
Developments in this area seem likely to come from a combination of outcrop, geostatistical / stochastic approaches, physical experiments including large flume tank studies, and numerical approaches to the modelling of erosion-transport-depositional systems, all under the umbrella of the Landscape Into Rock concept. However, we will also encourage presentation of brand-new innovative methods, including cross-disciplinary methods that bring in ideas from other branches of science.
The meeting will be organized into a series of themed sessions, with an emphasis on provocative but practical presentations. Presentations will be scheduled to ensure there is plenty of time to debate all the issues raised in the meeting. In a final session, the conveners will chair a discussion targeted at achieving a consensus view on how the subject should move forward.
Registration will open at 8.30am on 22 September and the meeting will commence at 9.00am. The meeting is due to finish at approximately 6pm on 23 September. For full timings, please download a copy of the programme in the Downloads box. Please note that timings may be subject to change.
