Division Profile

Our meeting schedule is to have at least one informal brown-bag talk every month, except during the summer. Talks normally start at 12:00 noon and finish before 1:00 p.m. Each talk consists of a 40 minute technical presentation followed by a 10 minute question period. 

Involvement of our CSPG members is the key to the success of the Division. Individuals are encouraged to take part in all activities. Service companies are also encouraged to attend Division meetings and be involved in all Division activities. Basin Analysis and Sequence Stratigraphy Technical Division Talks are free to CSPG members. Please bring your lunch.
