Field trip 1: Spectacular Example of a Wave-dominated Delta and Associated Fluvial Deposits in Central Jutland, Denmark.

Sunday 10 June 2018, 08:00 - 19:00 hrs

Field trip leader: E.S. Rasmussen (GEUS)

Field trip description

The succession that crops out in east Jylland shows exceptionally detailed sedimentary structures and demonstrates clearly facies changes within fluvial, shallow marine, and back barrier depositional environments. Interpretations of the sedimentary structures have been combined with detailed palynofacies studies, resulting in the recognition of major flooding surfaces as well as constraining the sedimentary interpretations. High quality seismic data illustrates the regional development of the wave-dominated delta and how to predict thick reservoir sands.
A sequence stratigraphic model has been proposed for the outcropping succession and the major surfaces and boundaries can be recognised on seismic data and followed into the North Sea Basin.

The upper Oligocene – lower Miocene succession in Denmark is of interest to exploration geologists, to those working with seismic data, log-correlation and detailed sedimentology, and to reservoir geologists.

The excursion is also of interest to management and other non-geologists, as an example of the application of such methods in exploration.
