On offer: virtual field schools

In the light of current restrictions on travel and the need for social distancing, TCIE (Technical Committee Improved Exploration) have decided to offer FORCE members and non-members the opportunity to attend a series ‘virtual field schools’ through the fall of 2020.

It will be running four, one hour-long, virtual field trips, incorporating SAFARI Virtual Outcrop data led by Professor John Howell (SAFARI PI at the University of Aberdeen).

The first session on fluvial outcrops will take place on Tuesday 8th September, starting at 2 pm CET. You can still register for this event through this link.


You will be viewing world-class virtual outcrops augmented with subsurface data, modern analogues and reservoir models from around the globe in purpose-built virtual outcrop software (Lime). The material will be delivered via ZOOM: Hyperlinks and passwords will be sent to you upon registration.
