I'm absolutely delighted, because I heard this morning that one of the papers on the Gulf of Suez work we're doing at Manchester has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Structural Geology, pending minor revisions. I will write a little more on the paper when I get a chance, probably next week. To summarise, it uses the LiDAR data we have in the Gulf of Suez to reconstruct the geological history of small fault-controlled basin, in a more detailed way than has been possible with other techniques. This is the first paper on the Gulf of Suez LiDAR work to come out, and I think that it is suitably impressive. Watch this space for more details.
This blog is written by Dr. Paul Wilson, a researcher in the field of structure and tectonics of geological basins at the University of Manchester. It contains comments and discussion of new research on the geology of basins and petroleum geology. My intention is to pitch this at roughly the level of the scientifically literate general reader. I welcome comments, and especially suggestions as to how I can improve this site.
