PESA WA: April Evening Talk – Integrated study of the Oligo-Miocene carbonate overburden of the Northern Carnarvon Basin

Tuesday, April 30 @ 18:00 - 19:30

Event Categories:

Guest Speaker: Rosine Riera

Rosine Riera is a final year PhD student in carbonate sedimentology at the Centre for Energy Geoscience, University of Western Australia. She has a MSc in Petroleum Geology from the UniLasalle University (France). During her MSc research project, at Total R&D, she has been working on the diagenetic processes affecting heterozoan carbonates. Her PhD thesis aims to reconstruct the stratigraphic evolution of the Oligo-Miocene carbonate platform from the Carnarvon Basin, using both field, well and seismic data. Her research interests are in foraminiferal biostratigraphy, carbonate sedimentology and seismic stratigraphy.

PESA WA invites you to our April evening talk with guest speaker Rosine Riera, PhD student at the Centre for Energy Geoscience (University of Western Australia) and her talk on:

Integrated study of the Oligo-Miocene carbonate overburden of the Northern Carnarvon Basin (NWS, Australia)

Presented by Rosine Riera


Carbonate sedimentation has dominated across Australia’s extensive North West Shelf since the Paleocene. In this new integrated study we gather field, well and seismic data to reconstruct the Oligo-Miocene evolution of the carbonate sequences of the Northern Carnarvon Basin. We infer that distally steepened ramps composed of deep water mudstones evolved to a coral-rich rimmed platform during the Middle Miocene. Carbonate sedimentation is then annihilated by a siliciclastic pulse at the end of the Middle Miocene. These results provide the opportunity to discuss the factors controlling the sedimentation in the Carnarvon Basin, and the influence of local and regional paleo-climatic, paleo-oceanographic and paleo-geographic events.
