Field trips and Field Courses
We organise and lead field trips to various localities in Devon, Cornwall and Dorset, in the southwest of England. These range from half-day excursions in North Devon as part of a training course held at IGI’s premises to 5-day field-based courses looking at the petroleum systems of the Wessex Basin in Dorset.
The localities that we routinely use lie in two areas:
Devon & North Somerset: These focus on Devonian to Jurassic sedimentary sections and structural geology, and can be used to support aspects of our basin modelling courses.
Wessex Basin, Dorset: Trips on Dorset’s famous “Jurassic Coast”– a World Heritage Site including Triassic & Jurassic petroleum reservoirs, oil seeps and Jurassic source rocks. IGI have particular expertise in the petroleum geochemistry of this area, and field visits can be supported by review and analysis of relevant geochemical data from these localities.
Field trips for individual clients can be organized to include pick-up from, and return to airport, full coach hire, all accommodation and meals, field safety equipment and the provision of an experienced field leader. A wide range of taught course content can also be included to provide the desired mix of classroom training and field visits.
