"NEWSLETTER of the ILP TASK FORCE on SEDIMENTARY BASINS"
NEWSLETTER of the ILP TASK FORCE on SEDIMENTARY BASINS (November, 2008) The fourth workshop of the ILP Task Force on Sedimentary Basins has been hosted by CICESE on September 21-26 in Ensenada (Baja California, Mexico), in association with ILP Task Forces 2 and 4. This letter provides a summary report of this event, as well as information on other past (2008) and future (2009) meetings of the Task Force. In this context, we are very pleased to annonce the next (fifth) ILP-Task Force 6 meeting in Abu-Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) on December 5-9, 2009. CONTENTS Part I: Summary report of the Ensenada Conference. Part II: Other activities of the Task Force (meetings and publications) Part III: 5th ILP Task Force 6 meeting in Abu- Dhabi (December 5-9, 2009) on behalf of the Ministry of Energy of the UAE you are kindly invited to join the 5th workshop of the ILP-Task Force on Sedimentary Basins December 5 to 9, 2009 Abu Dhabi United Arab Emirates http://sgfr.free.fr/seance/ilp 1 Part I Summary report of the 2008 Joint ILP Task Forces workshop in Ensenada, Mexico 1.1- Venue, organizing committee and opening session Following the previous successful meetings of the ILP Task Force on Sedimentary Basins, CICESE (Center of Scientific Research and Graduate Studies in Ensenada) and the Mexican Geophysical Union (Unión Geofisica Mexicana, UGM) hosted this 2008 workshop in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico, from September 21 to 26. This workshop, organized by Luis Delgado (CICESE) and Felipe Ortuño (Instituto Mexicano del Petróleo), involved also the other ILP Task Forces dealing with mantle processes, volcanism and paleostress. After two days of field trip led by Arturo Martin-Barajas (CICESE) in the northern part of the Gulf of California rift system on September 22 and 23, in room presentations and discussions were held at Coral Hotel, across the street from CICESE. During the opening session, Federico Graef (Director of CICESE), Josée Manuel ROMO (Vice-president of UGM), Luis Delgado and Felipe Ortuño (organizers of the workshop), provided the welcome address, which was followed by an overall presentation of ILP and the International Year of Planet Earth by Sierd Cloetingh (President of ILP). 1.2- Participants See Appendix 1. 2 1.3- Oral and poster sessions The full programme of the sessions focussing on Mexican basins, volcanic failure as well as more global mantle-lithosphere interactions and basin processes is provided in Appendix 2. 1.4- Field trip Arturo Martin-Barajas and Ramón Mendoza-Borunda lead a brilliant field trip on September 22-23 across the northern part of the Gulf of California, from Mexicali to the sea shore, thus allowing to document both low and high-angle normal faults, volcanic records of the rifting processes, as well as modern interactions between continental (fluvio-deltaic) and brackish- evaporitic sedimentation. Seismic profiles and wells data were also helpful in stimulating in depth discussion on the timing of deformation and overall crustal architecture of the basin. 1.5- Panel discussion Following the discussions on Mexican basins held during the oral/poster sessions and the field trip, the last day was mostly devoted to a pannel discussion (Luis Delgado and Arturo Martin for CICESE, Leni Scheck-Wenderoth and Sierd Cloetingh (Panel Chair) for ILP, Kirk Osadetz and Hans Thybo for Research Institutes and Universities), Noëlle Schoellkopff and Patrick Unternehr for the Industry), aiming at identifying points of common interest for the Mexican and international Earth Sciences communities, and defining a road map for further collaborations. 3 Arturo expressed the need to (1) move from basic/regional geology toward the understanding of more integrated, process oriented studies, (2) develop further international collaborations on both sides of the Atlantic, (3) develop a Mexican network among CICESE, UNAM and other Earth Sciences teams to attract/develop international projects dedicated to the study of basin-related processes in Mexican natural laboratories such as the Gulf of California rift system. He stressed also the current lack in both numerical and analogue models dedicated to the study of the Gulf of California, which should take into account local complexities such as polyphase arc/back-arc and extension, strike-slip motion, at least for the last -Neogene- thermal events. Luis further expended his interest to (1) the entire Cordilleran domain, including subduction, arc systems, uplift, exhumation and rifting processes between Alaska to Central Mexico, as well as (2) training of Mexican students in foreign universities, i.e. Basin Master. Leni stressed the interest of the Gulf of California natural laboratory, as an unique site in the World where (1) deep lithospheric structure could be be linked to incipient versus aborted pull-apart basins and ongoing/versus recent oceanization, and (2) only limited active faults and volcanism have been identified to date. Hans noticed the real need for deep geophysical controls in the Gulf of California area, the study of which being definitively of interest for international collaboration and more integrated studies. Kirk summarized the success story of international collaboration aiming at the study of the Earth, including both deep seismic consortia and the IODP and ICDP drilling programmes. He mentioned also the interest of the petroleum industry for the study of petroleum systems associated with rift and passive margins, the unique exposures of the Gulf of California basin providing first class analogues for any other margin where synrift series are no longer exposed at the surface. Patrick told us how much interest and money is invested for securing the World energy needs, which definitively require more collaboration for exploring deeper (beneath the salt in the Gulf of Mexico and offshore Brazil) and farther (in the Arctic). Such frontier exploration would greatly benefit from the understanding of well documented analogues where synrift sequences and thermicity associated with early rifting processes could be better documented. Noelle also pointed out the interest of well documented analogues for (1) transtensional and transpressional systems, as well as (2) linking recent structures to older history of the crust (what are the controls exerted by pre-existing tectonic features in the localization of rift- related structures?). Ultimately, the shopping list recommended by the panel for further studies in the Gulf of California area would also include deep reflection and refraction seismic profiling, high resolution bathymetry, temporal and spatial heat flow variations, in order to feed both analogue and numerical basin modelling. The duty of such international network would include the publication of process oriented papers, and to open its gate to the students and young scientists. 1.6- Abstracts volume Abstracts have been published in GEOS, volume 28, N°1, 70 pp (September 2008 issue of the Journal of the Unión Geofísica Mexicana). A pdf of this volume, which includes also the Field Trip Log, can still be downloaded from UGM website (www.ugm.org.mx). 4 1.7- Call for papers and dead-line for submission We are currently discussing the contents of a thematic issue of Tectonophysics, focussing of the links between mantle dynamics and basin evolution. Contributors to the Ensenada workshop are kindly asked to contact Luis, Felipe, Leni and François (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, Francois.ROURE@ifp.fr) to tell before January First whether or not they plan to submit a manuscript, and to confirm the title of their contribution. Dead line for submission will be on March 15, 2009. 1.8- Acknowledgements We kindly acknowledge the sponsorship of ILP and Schlumberger, as well as the very strong involvement of CICESE and UGM. Thanks a lot also to the organizers, Luis Delgado (CICESE) and Felipe Ortuño (IMP), Arturo Martin-Barajas, Ivonne Pedrín, Daniel Peralta, Ramón Mendoza and other Mexican colleagues for their enthusiasm and efficiency in coordinating this event.

The meeting will address: - Lithosphere dynamics and coupling between deep and surface processes - Geodynamics, paleogeography and tectonic evolution of the Arabian plate and its surroundings (Pre-Cambrian, Paleozoïc, Mesozoïc, Cenozoïc, Present) - Crustal and lithosphere architecture of the Arabian plate and its surroundings - Basin formation and deformation (priority on Middle East basins) - Paleo-thermometers and unroofing processes - Basin modelling and thermal regimes - Regional fluid transfers and hydrothermal dolomites The workshop will include a field trip in the foothills of the Oman Range in the Northern Emirates (December 5 and 6, 2009), and in room presentations and discussions in Abu Dhabi (December 7 to 9, 2009). A web page (http://sgfr.free.fr/seance/ilp) will be posted by Mid-December at the Société Géologique de France, detailing the organizing and scientific committees, key notes, topics and time table for pre-registration, abstract submission and on line registration, field trip, basic informations on UAE, climate, visas and lodging facilities.
