Quantitative Clastics Laboratory
The Quantitative Clastics Laboratory (QCL) carries out geologic studies of the processes, tectonics, and quantitative morphology of basins around the world. QCL research emphasizes the use of mega-merged 3D seismic data sets for quantitative seismic geomorphologic study of the basin fill, evaluation of source-to-sink relationships between the shelf, slope and deep basin and analyses of the influence of tectonics and fluids (such as gas hydrates) on the evolution of these complex continental margin settings. The program was established in 2001 and is funded by a consortium of oil companies and supported by numerous software vendors and foreign energy ministries. The QCL is widely considered the world's premier research group in the application of seismic geomorphology to reservoir characterizations, and is a Jackson School of Geosciences collaboration between the Department of Geosciences, the Bureau of Economic Geology and the Institute for Geophysics.
The Deepwater Systems Meeting and AAPG are both a wrap for QCL.
We enjoyed a great field trip, meeting and core workshop, hosting reps from the majority of the 17 consortium companies in the IA. We look forward to seeing you all in September when we host our fluvial, deltaic, shallow marine meeting out in Grand Junction, Colorado. Have a great summer (or fall) field season.
