The Geologic Society of America 125th Annual Meeting will be held in Denver, CO, October 27-30, 2013. There are a number of sessions hosted by the Limnogeology Section focusing on lacustrine sediments which may be of interest to Novus participants.
- T64. Lacustrine Basin Analysis and Petroleum Systems: Ancient Case Studies, Modern Analogs, New Frontiers
- Monday, 28 October 2013: 8:00 AM-12:00 PM Colorado Convention Center Room 502
This session will encompass the evolution of our understanding of lacustrine geology, including research on the geology, geochemistry, and geophysics of lake basins (modern and ancient), with special relevance to petroleum systems development.
- T68. World of Lakes
- Monday, 28 October 2013: 1:00 PM-5:00 PM Colorado Convention Center Room 501
Lacustrine records continually provide new insights into terrestrial paleoconditions. Limnogeology and paleolimnology have taken tremendous strides in the past 50 years. This session invites all contributions related to lake research.
- T193. Continental Carbonates
- Tuesday, 29 October 2013: 1:00 PM-5:00 PM Colorado Convention Center Room 301
Continental carbonates contribute paleoenvironmental information for reconstructions of paleoclimate as well as landscape drainage patterns. Research on lacustrine and palustrine limestones, microbialites and spring deposits, and evaporites will be highlighted.
- T31. Recent Advances in Understanding Great Basin Paleoclimate
- Wednesday, 30 October 2013: 8:00 AM-12:00 PM Colorado Convention Center Mile High Ballroom 2C
This session encourages presentation of new observations and geochronology leading toward new interpretations of Pleistocene and Holocene lake level changes and other climate-related effects in the western U.S. Great Basin.
