Research Interests

Xrf elemental analysis of 9 full section Eagle Bine cores and additional cutting supplementation will be used to create a regional chemostratigraphic framework throughout the Brazos Basin. The purpose of this study is to (1) establish elemental proxies for the three primary controlling factors on source rock development (preservation, productivity, and dilution), (2) map these proxy curves regionally throughout the basin, (3) determine sweet spots within the basin that are favorable for organic matter enrichment, and (4) compare this model to TOC, kerogen type, and production data.
