Project title

Magnetostratigraphy and sedimentology of the southern Karoo Basin


Prof. M.O. de Kock

Project outline

  • Providing a detailed sedimentological characterisation of the Permian rocks and investigating the sedimentary environments in which the potential Karoo shale gas source rocks formed
  • Using core logging technologies to determine reservoir architecture and facies distribution
  • Using paleomagnetic techniques as a tool for precise correlation of time horizons within the Karoo Permian successions
  • Investigating the changes in sediment accumulation rates in the southern Karoo Basin
  • Establishing a magnetostratigraphic framework for the southern Karoo Basin

Research interests

Magnetostratigraphy, Rock magnetism, Sedimentology, Stratigraphy, Petroleum Geology and Sequence Stratigraphy.
