Royal Holloway Research Uses PaleoGIS

Reconstruction of India, Australia and Antarctica's breakup from Gondwana

Reconstruction of India, Australia and Antarctica’s Breakup from Gondwana

We are pleased to share with you a reconstruction animation created using PaleoGIS by Dr. Lloyd White of Royal Holloway, University of London’s Department of Earth Sciences (Royal Holloway). Dr. White included this reconstruction in his presentation at the The Roberts Conference: Passive Margins 2016 (Roberts Conference), held at Royal Holloway April 6–8. The conference explores the role of mechanisms such as “depth-dependant and differential stretching through the lithosphere, polyphase deformation, magmatic activity, and the interplay between structure and sedimentation in rift and passive margin development.” (See Event Details at GlobalEventsList.elselvier.com)

Dr. White’s presentation focused on the tectonic evolution of Gondwana and geological record of breakup along the Indian, Australian and Antarctic passive margins.

The plate model illustrated in the reconstruction was developed by Dr. White and follows work presented in White et al., (2013) “A reassessment of paleogeographic reconstructions of eastern Gondwana: Bringing geology back into the equation” published in Gondwana Research. The model was also presented by Dr. White at this year’s Roberts Conference at Royal Holloway.

LoCrA sponsorship, plus meet us at AAPG 2015 ACE

PaleoGIS Sponsors LoCrA for a Third Year

Lower Cretaceous basin studies in the Arctic consortium logo

We are pleased to announce that Rothwell is entering its third year as a primary software sponsor of the Lower Cretaceous basin studies in the Arctic consortium (LoCrA). According to its website:

LoCrA is a consortium managed by the University of Stavanger and the University Centre in Svalbard [both in Norway] in cooperation with other universities [including The University of Texas at Austin Institute for Geophysics] to improve the knowledge of the basin configuration and fill of the Lower Cretaceous basins in the high Arctic in order to predict coarse-grained siliciclastic wedges as plays.

Meet Us at the AAPG 2015 Annual Convention & Exhibition

The consortium has 21 industry and government sponsors. Several consortium collaborators will present research at the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) 2015 Annual Convention & Exhibition (ACE) in Denver, June 1–4, including:

  • Tuesday, June 2: Afternoon Oral Sessions Reservoir Architecture of Deep Marine Rift Climax Deposits: An Outcrop Study From East Greenland, Presented by Sten-Andreas Grundvåg – Theme 4: From Chaos to Order: Reducing Reservoir Architecture Uncertainty in Deepwater Systems
  • Wednesday, June 3: Morning Oral Sessions Formation of the Gulf of Mexico Salt Basin, Presented by Ian Norton – Theme 5: Tectonic Evolution of Passive Margins

If you plan to be in Denver for the AAPG 2015 Annual Convention & Exhibition, please let us know! We welcome the opportunity to meet up or invite you to our offices.

Save the Date: 2014 PaleoGIS and PaleoClimate User Conference and Workshop

Mark your calendar now and plan to be in Houston on Wednesday, November 5, 2014, for The Rothwell Group’s 4th Annual PaleoGIS/PaleoClimate User Conference and Plate Tectonics Reconstruction Workshop.

Join your colleagues from the oil, gas and mineral exploration industries, and from the geoscience research community, for a highly informative day (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.). The conference will include presentations of industry user case studies, current research from leading scientists and the latest technological advancements from our plate model partners.

In addition, the Rothwell team will demonstrate new product capabilities and share our future development plans. These include updates to our web-based product strategy and a new offering for the academic community.

Stay tuned for a detailed agenda and formal invitations, in the near future. We look forward to seeing you again—or welcoming you for the first time!
