Karoo Field Trip

VBPR have arranged field trips to the Karoo Basin since 2001.

The Karoo Basin is a fantastic natural laboratory for studies of volcanic basins. The objectives of the field trip is to examine the nature of intrusive volcanic complexes and associated hydrothermal systems, and how the volcanic deposits and processes have influenced the basin structure, hydrogeology and petroleum prospectivity.

  • The 5 - 7 day geological field trip will bring us through the entire Karoo Basin stratigraphy and we will examine many aspects of the Karoo Basin volcanic complexes
  • Particular focus is on how to relate the field observations to the geology of the Vøring and Møre basins offshore mid-Norway
