Field Workshop


Geological Expedition and Field Workshop in Leh-Ladakh-Zanskar Sector

Leh - Ladakh - Zanskar Sector - 2016 (J & K)
20th TO 29th AUGUST 2016

Major achievements are as under

  • Application aspects of geological understanding in the fourth dimension through incorporation of latest theoretical concepts and integration of various available geological interpretation tools in line with the business objectives of exploration was highlighted.
  • Understanding of a plethora of real-world geological processes of the genesis and evolution of petroleum system elements was refreshed in light of modern practices
  • Field exposure and understanding of five tectono-stratigraphic settings – pre-, syn- and post-rifting followed by pre-, syn- and post-collision settings was provided.

A number of tangible benefits accrue from such field expeditions a few of which are enumerated below

  • Quality time devoted in field set-up in real world Indian situations for academia-industry interchange of ideas and concepts during these field workshops add much more value than monotonous classroom learning with foreign examples of unfamiliar geological terrains.
  • Working in a particular laboratory environment and/or looking into datasets of one or two particular geologic setting(s) tend to result in biases that inevitably creep in. The exposure, environment and experiences provided by such workshops helps to broaden the knowledge base and remove biases, thus resulting in fertile mindsets.
  • Regular field intensive exposures such as the present one are perhaps the only means of keeping todays geoscientist rooted to basic geological principles and concepts, in the face of explosive software growth and marketing through colourful maps, models and images that can attract him away from real world solutions and possibilities
  • A very obvious outcome of the multi-disciplinary participation in these workshops has been the improved communication and mutual respect between G&G personnel.
  • The passionate field debates amongst participating professionals with multiple expertises and experiences are seen to vastly improve out-of-box thinking and innovative mindsets that result in multiple interpretation models with the same set of field observations and datasets.
