Our very own Tess Menotti, 4th year graduate student, is leading the Pacific Section SEPM Fall Field trip on October 20-21, 2012 to the Salinas Basin of California. Tess was asked to lead the field trip following her very successful turn in the same role for the 2010 BPSM Industrial Affiliates Meeting. Tess plans a comprehensive look at the Monterey(!) Petroleum System of the Salinas Basin and its expression in outcrop. We are so proud of you!
