Micropaleontology is the branch of paleontology that studies microfossils, or fossils that require the use of a microscope to see the organism, its morphology and its characteristics details. Microfossils, particularly from deep-sea sediments, provide some of the most important records of global environmental change on long, medium or short timescales.
As one of the first women to do well-site micropaleontology analysis in the Gulf of Mexico, Nancy Englehardt-Moore will share her experiences as a woman pioneer in the oil and gas industry. She has sat over 40 wells including off-shore Trinidad and Israel.|
In this talk, Nancy will share her work in areas such as the development of chronostratigraphic frameworks & integrated geologic models for exploration and exploitation reservoir characterization studies including the identification of depositional systems and flow units, and micropaleontological sample analysis.
