Call for Abstracts | 38th Annual GCSSEPM Foundation Perkins-Rosen Research Conference


The SEPM Gulf Coast Section is inviting submissions on the topic:


The Cenomanian-Turonian Stratigraphic Interval Across the Americas:

Argentina to Alaska December 5-7 2022 | Houston, Texas

We are soliciting contributions for oral and poster presentations from individuals in academic, industry, and governmental organizations with experience in the structural, stratigraphic, oceanographic, climatic, and geochemical characteristics of Cenomanian-Turonian rocks or petroleum products from different locations across this wide-ranging geographic area. These foundational contributions will provide a basis for linking the underlying controls to the rock record, and ultimately the prospectivity of these basins. We intend that these contributions will lead to a more robust understanding of the fundamental mechanisms controlling the global deposition and variability of organic-rich rocks in this exceptional succession, and how this affects our understanding of the carbon cycle. Our goal is that the 38th Annual Perkins-Rosen Conference becomes known as a key milestone in achieving this understanding.
