Shallow Marine Research Group
An industry-facing research group bringing together multi-disciplinary expertise in all aspects of applied shallow-marine sedimentary research.
Principal aim: to conduct cutting-edge research into the application of shallow-marine sedimentology for developing a better understanding of issues relating to hydrocarbon systems, mining and mineral exploration, and carbon sequestration.
Specific objectives: develop a state-of-the-art knowledge transfer programme to distil current thinking and trends in applied shallow-marine research; to present summary data and models in a format suitable for direct use by industrial sponsors.
The SMRG is part of Petroleum Leeds, a collaboration between the School of Earth and Environment and the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Leeds.
