27th Annual Bob F. Perkins Research Conference
The "Paleogene" encompasses critical components of petroleum systems around the world. In addition to the traditional components of source, reservoir, seal rocks, and traps, there are numerous broader scale phenomena affecting petroleum systems that are unique and characteristic to the Paleogene, some of which are:
-Influence of long-term sea level fall on sequence stratigraphic development and deep water depositional systems
-Stages of basin development associated with Laramide and Andean orogeny
-Creation of great rivers (hence reservoirs) in relation to orogenesis and long-term eustatic fall
-Structural and depositional effects of the K-T impact and recovery of the biosphere
-Flexural effects of sediment redistribution during forced regressions and marginal failure common to the Paleogene
-Role of Eocene onset of polar/continental glaciation on sequence cyclicity; did the "3rd-order" exist prior to Eocene?
-The onset of convergence between North and South America
-The entry of the Caribbean Plate into the intra-American gap from the Pacific
-Mass wasting and failure of continental margins
-Global circulation patterns in light of global Paleogene paleogeography and climatic perturbations.
Paper and poster presentations are solicited for two specific areas: The circum-Gulf of Mexico and northern South America. Each author of an accepted paper is required to submit a manuscript for a short paper with a minimum of four published pages including illustrations. Publication will be on CD-ROM. No maximum page limit has been set at this time. Animations or movie files can be used as figures to enable readers to view simulations, etc., as they read your paper.
