Volcanoes are hot, loud and scary, thus we know little of their internal structure, or that of their underlying, dyke- and sill-dominated ‘plumbing systems’. Magma intrusion in the Earth’s crust and the extrusion of this material on its surface represent a natural hazard; however, these processes can also result in the formation of economic quantities of hydrocarbons. In this talk I will show how 3D seismic reflection data can illuminate the structure and emplacement mechanics of these ‘hot rocks’. I will also demonstrate the key role igneous processes and products play in the development of petroleum systems on continental margins.

All welcome to attend, free for members of the Sedgwick Club, £2 for non-members. Refreshments provided!
