Who Should Attend
This course is especially useful for entry-level geologists and those looking for a refresher course in siliciclastic sedimentology and stratigraphy.

Course Objectives
Hands-on core workshop that emphasizes the understanding of physical and biogenic structures in the interpretation of sedimentary depositional environments. Environments are then related in both time and space using sequence stratigraphic principles. Course time is split approximately 70:30 between core observation and lecture presentations.  Practical exercises include core observation and interpretation, which then are used to correlate well-log cross-sections from subsurface examples in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin. 


Bill Arnott is a professor and Chair at the University of Ottawa. Before coming to the university he worked in Calgary for Texaco Canada and Esso Resources. His research interests span the continental to deep-marine siliciclastic sedimentary records; experimental, geochemical, outcrop and core.
