This post is also available in: Português (Portuguese (Brazil)) Español (Spanish)

Sedimentary Basins’ Stratigraphy

Application of sequence stratigraphy and other stratigraphic analysis methods in the study of sedimentary basins in order to know their depositional and evolutionary histories.


Professors : Ana Maria Pimentel Mizusaki, Claiton Marlon of Santos Scherer, Karin Goldberg, Luiz Jose Tomazelli, Marcus Vinicius Dorneles Remus, Paulo Alves de Souza .

Petroleum Geology

Study of oil generation, migration and accumulation aspects, by geochemical, sedimentological, petrological, stratigraphic and geophysical approaches (this research line is developed in accord with ANP, Brazilian National Petroleum Agency).

Professors : Ana Maria Pimentel Mizusaki, Claiton Marlon dos Santos Scherer, João Carlos Coimbra, Luiz Fernando de Ros, Luiz Jose Tomazelli, Marcus Vinicius Dorneles Remus and Wolfgang Dieter Kalkreuth.


Sedimentary basins’ origins and evolution

Study of tectonic processes that are responsible for the genesis and evolution of different types of sedimentary basins.

Professors : Ana Maria Pimentel Mizusaki, Andrea Ritter Jelinek, Eduardo Guimarães Barboza, João Carlos Coimbra, Luiz Fernando De Ros and Marcus Vinícius Dorneles Remus.
