Fare thee well, Wilrich and Falher. Enter the Elmworth
As my Clastic Sedimentology professor, “Cactus” Jack Lerbekmo, would stress to our class, “Geology is a descriptive science.” To be useful, your terminology must be clear. Imprecise or outdated nomenclature should be revised or abandoned. Such is the case with the Upper Mannville in the Deep Basin. Put another way, obsolete terminology does not just exasperate, it exacerbates challenges in advancing understanding (TF, if you're out there and reading this, you'll smile. -A
Upper Mannville Deep Basin correlation update
The daunting but necessary and achievable task of establishing a consistent stratigraphic framework for the Hydro-Geomechanics of the Upper Mannville Deep Basin project has entered a new phase. (BTW, some readers might think of this as correlating the Wilrich, Falher and Notikewin but we are moving away from that terminology). The first phase was separating the upper Upper Mannville (née Notikewin) which cuts into the lower Upper Mannville (née Falher and Wilrich) and repres
What do brittleness and lanyards have in common?

We got a kick out of sponsoring the wi-fi at GeoConvention and making people type "enlightenme" into their devices to get connected, and we're super grateful
