Field Trips:
Canyon Lake Gorge: Cretaceous Glen Rose (Wed., Nov. 1)
The “Canyon Lake Gorge” Field Trip will provide access to excellent exposures of the
Cretaceous Glen Rose Formation at the recently (2002) exposed area below the Spillway at
Canyon Lake. It will feature the Stratigraphic, Structural, and Aquifer Characteristics of this
Upper Cretaceous Sands of the Eagle Pass Area (Fri.-Sat., Nov. 3 & 4)
The “Upper Cretaceous Sands of the Eagle Pass Area” Field Trip will provide a detailed look
at the Upper Cretaceous Sands, including the Escondido, Olmos and San Miguel. Along the
way we will look at the Austin Chalk and the Anacacho Lime, as well as Igneous (“Serpentine”)
Intrusions in the area.
Austin Chalk and Eagle Ford Shale in San Antonio (Sat., Nov. 4)
The “Austin Chalk and Eagle Ford Shale in San Antonio” Field Trip will provide a good look at
the full Austin Chalk section in the San Antonio area, with several newly examined outcrops.
It will include nicely exposed underlying Austin Chalk contacts with the Eagle Ford Shale and
an overlying contact with the Taylor Formation. The trip will see nearly 500’ of beautifully
exposed, easily accessible Buda Lime / Eagle Ford Shale / Austin Chalk.

Short Courses:
3D Seismic Attributes for Prospect Identification and Reservoir Characterization
In this 2-day short course, you will gain an intuitive understanding of the kinds of seismic features
that can be identified by 3D seismic attributes, the sensitivity of seismic attributes to seismic
acquisition and processing, and how ‘independent’ seismic attributes can be coupled through
geology. Instructor Kurt Marfurt: Tues.-Wed., Oct. 31-Nov. 1
Integrated Exploration Methods for Clastic Depositional Systems
This 2-day course is designed to provide participants with a modern appreciation of the full
spectrum of deep-water depositional systems and their petroleum reservoirs in the context of oil
and gas exploration and appraisal. The course examines sediment transport and deposition,
stratigraphic architecture, and predictive reservoir characteristics in a variety of basins using
hands-on lectures, core-log-seismic exercises, and collaborative discussions.
Instructor John Rotzien: Tues.-Wed., Oct. 31-Nov. 1
Log Analysis for Unconventional Reservoirs
This is a 1-day short course on log analysis of unconventional reservoirs. It will cover basic
characteristics and mineralogy of unconventional reservoirs; estimation of Total Organic Carbon
(TOC wt.%) from well logs; log analysis of organic rich, gas-bearing and oil-bearing mudstones
using both conventional logs and newer advanced logging technologies including geomechanical
properties, NMR and dielectric logs. Case studies from both gas and oil bearing unconventional
reservoirs are presented. Instructor George Asquith: Tues., Nov. 1
Introduction to Seismic Interpretation: STUDENTS ONLY
This is a 2-day short course that introduces participants to seismic interpretation as applied in the
petroleum industry. Lectures, hands-on exercises and discussions focus on the tools and
concepts used by interpreters to derive structural and stratigraphic information from 2D and 3D
seismic data. Topics include the principles of the seismic method, data acquisition and processing,
interpretation tools and workflows, and how all of these factors affect structural and
stratigraphic interpretations. Instructors Carl Fiduk & Bruce Hart: Fri.-Sat., Nov. 4-5
Ethics for Geologists (Includes Breakfast)
This is a 1-hour collaborative/interactive lecture to satisfy the Texas Board of Professional
Geoscientists ethics credit requirement. Participants must bring a text capable phone to
interactively participate in the lecture. Students may suggest specific ethical topics for class
discussion by contacting the instructor at prior to the course.
Instructor John Jordan: Thurs., Nov. 3
