The Caribbean region is part of World Energy Assessment region 6 (Central and South America). A fundamental task in the assessment is to map the locations and type of production for existing oil and gas fields. The Petroconsultants database is the only available database that has coverage for the Caribbean region. Oil and gas field symbols represent field center-points and are published with permission from Petroconsultants International Data Corporation, 2002 database.

Album caption: Stela F. One of the most distinctive of the stela at Quirigua. It projects 24 feet above the ground. This is the south face and the glyphs are perhaps the most beautifully carved of any among the Maya inscriptions. An unusual feature of this stela is that it has two dates - A.D. 1761 and A.D. 724 which is likely a leap year correction. While Stela F. is one of the tallest here it is not the tallest. Stela E. is the tallest. It is 35 feet long by 5 feet wide and 4 feet thick. It projects 26 feet 6 inches above ground and weights 65 tons.

This dataset describes mercury (Hg) stable isotope values in fish dorsal muscle from different freshwater environments across the globe. Fish were collected at numerous field sites in North America, South and Central America, Africa, and Asia from 2006-2020. Sub-samples were provided by cooperators to the U.S. Geological Survey Mercury Research Laboratory and the University of Wisconsin for mercury stable isotope analysis. Samples were analyzed for mercury stable isotopes from 2017-2021. These specimens represent multiple trophic levels and body sizes from different food webs and when adequate mass was available, multiple species from the same food web were examined. Cooperators include, but are not limited to:...

Note the prominent development of en echelon fissures oriented at about a 15 degree angle to the fault trace and open 27 centimeters in the foreground with connecting pressure ridges to 40 centimeters high. 1976. Slide 12, U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 77-165.

Guatemala Earthquake 1976. North along rows in a cultivated field west of El Progreso that are offset 105 centimeters in a sinistral sense by slip on the Motagua fault. The thick, saturated surficial unconsolidated deposits have yielded by plastic deformation rather than rupture. 1976. Slide 11, U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 77-165.

Several large railroad and highway bridges were badly damaged but did not collapse. 1976. Slide 47, U.S. Geological Survey Open- File Report 77-165.
