Presentations at AAPG 2016 in Calgary

Here’s a rundown of our group’s talks and posters at the 2016 AAPG conference in Calgary next week. All of this work is associated with the Chile Slope Systems project, which is a multi-institution project involving Virginia Tech, Colorado State University, and University of Calgary.
