Course Description
This course will describe, illustrate, and interpret the wide range of bedforms and depositional processes within mudstone dominated successions, including flocculation, hypopycnal, hyperpycnal, wave enhanced gravity, and turbidite flows. Several mudstone classification and terminology schemes based on mineralogy and element composition will be introduced and contrasted for their strengths and weaknesses in assessing reservoir properties.

Participants will learn to:
•	Evaluate sedimentary settings and the processes that deposit fine grained sediments.
•	Assess the characteristics of shales and the lithological variables that distinguish different shale plays.
•	Evaluate shale sections in core.
•	Assess common physical sedimentary structures.
•	Assess visible diagenetic features.
•	Assess various bioturbation features.
•	Evaluate and name fine grained rocks on the basis of core and hand specimen derived properties.

This course is offered by Nautilus (www.nautilusworld.com), a PEICE affiliated company and the world leader in Geosciences Training services.

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
