Karoo Field Trip

VBPR have arranged field trips to the Karoo Basin since 2001.


The Karoo Basin is a fantastic natural laboratory for studies of volcanic basins. The objectives of the field trip is to examine the nature of intrusive volcanic complexes and associated hydrothermal systems, and how the volcanic deposits and processes have influenced the basin structure, hydrogeology and petroleum prospectivity.

This comprehensive three to five day trip will bring us through the main part of the Karoo stratigraphy, and the main aspects of the Karoo volcanic complexes will be examined.
