The AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition will feature a variety of field trips that will bookend the meeting, spanning from March 26 to April 8.

Anyone interested will have the opportunity to visit an exciting location while learning from leading experts in the field.

Many of the trips are located near the Convention Center in Houston, while others will be out of state.

Before the meeting, the field trips will include a look into unconventional carbonate mud depositional environments and facies distribution; Upper Cambrian microbial carbonate mounds; fluvial and coastal clastic sedimentology and ichnology in modern environments and core; and meandering creek systems. A tour of the NASA Space Center is also available.

Following the meeting, field trips will explore shelf to basin sequence framework and facies architecture of a Cretaceous carbonate ramp; unconventional source rock reservoir fields; stratigraphic framework for the Cutoff Formation and implications for Upper Bone Spring and Avalon Reservoirs; reservoir analogs of modern Galveston Island and the Brazos River; Spindletop Hill; and the deepwater deposits of the Pennsylvanian Ouachita Trough.

Registration is currently open for the field trips. To register or learn more, visit http://aapg.to/ace2017ft.
