Transportation. Bus

Description. The field trip aims at analyzing a case study of Late Eocene lacustrine carbonate-evaporite series in a rift basin, in the Ales region (Gulf of Lion margin), and to discuss paleoenvironmental controls on sedimentation in a rift setting. This case study may be used as an outcropping analog of the presently deeply buried carbonate/evaporite sequences of early stages of passive margins, in order to analyze the tectonic-sedimentation relationships. The study area has been selected for several reasons: Geographically close to Toulouse, where the IMS will be held, availability of subsurface and surface data, recent works through PhD and in-house research projects. An overview of the regional geology of the Ales region, and an introduction to the lacustrine Eocene succession will be given. The following key elements of a lacustrine system will be highlighted: Facies diversity, vertical and lateral variability; Paleoenvironmental reconstructions (hydrology, salinity, lake ecology, climate…); Stratigraphic architectures, at reservoir and basin scales and relationship with structural framework and tectonic evolution.

Description. Ilerdian (upper Thanetian/lower Ypresian) deposits in the Carcassonne basin correspond to the last marine incursion into the gulf before the sea withdraws toward the west. There, a carbonate shelf is well developed in the northern regions and is mainly connected with the Montagne Noire with two main deltas (Issel and Villeneuve, Alaric mountain). In southern part, sedimentation is mainly detritic (sands and marls, Coustouge section) and potential sources come from the Nappe des Corbières (Paleo-Pyrénées). During Ilerdian stage, Solenomeris patch reefs (local geological curiosity) appear in both sides of the basin and will be obseved at the Alaric moutain.

Description. This three-day fieldtrip will focus on the first regressive unit of the Ainsa piggy-back subbasin, part of South-Pyrenean foreland basin, mainly characterized by the Middle Eocene Sobrarbe deltaic complex deposits. The aim of the trip is to describe the stratigraphic and sequential architecture of syntectonic river-dominated deltaic system. We will identify different facies associations from alluvial plain to deep-water basin environments; observe their spatial, geometric, and temporal relationships from the 5th to 3rd order of sequences; and discuss about potential forcing parameters for each sequential order. We will exanimate world-class outcrops of Sobrarbe deltaic complex in Spanish Pyrenees between the town of Mondot and the city of Ainsa.

Description. This three-day excursion to the Aude Valley of the eastern North Pyrenees will present results of the ANR-PYRAMID project on the interactions of tectonics and sedimentation. Along a section from the North Pyrenean thrust front to the Massif Central, we will examine tectono-sedimentary relations, in order to define structural style and chronology with respect to stratigraphy. The different stops will focus on the pre-orogenic Quillan basin with its evidence of syn-sedimentary halokinetic activity and the evolution of the retro-foreland basin from Late Cretaceous onward. An evening in the medieval town of Carcassonne is included in the programme.

The present excursion aims to discover pedological aspects of the Gaillac Appellation vineyard in relation with the local geology, grape varieties and produced wines. Soil characteristics from two distinct terroir (the Right Bank hillsides and the Cordes Plateau) will be presented on the field and the flavor of wine in relation with those soils will be addressed through a tasting session. Midday meal will be taken in the cellar of the Château Bouscaillous domain in Noailhes (81).
