Surface and subsurface signatures of gas seepage in the St. Lawrence Estuary (Canada): Significance to hydrocarbon exploration
The seabed of the St. Lawrence Estuary is characterized by many fluid releasing features. On multibeam bathymetric images these features correspond to crater-like depression (pockmarks) predominantly found on the northwestern shoulder of the ~300 m deep Laurentian Channel, as well as on the channel floor. Aligned pockmarks, which define segments up to 12 km long, are frequent in the Laurentian Channel, whereas they are preferentially associated with submarine landslides on the northwestern shoulder of the channel. On high-resolution seismic profiles, pockmarks found in the Laurentian Channel are characterized by seismic chimneys that may be traced down to the autochthonous Paleozoic rocks (St. Lawrence platform),...
This map shows the subcrop pattern of the Mesozoic rock units present at the top Mesozoic unconformity (also commonly referred to as the base Tertiary unconformity) in Cook Inlet basin, Alaska. The subcrop is projected onto the top Mesozoic unconformity depth surface of Cook Inlet basin, Alaska, published by Shellenbaum and others (2010). Publicly available geologic and geophysical data from multiple sources were collected, interpreted, and integrated into the subcrop map. Formation picks at the top Mesozoic unconformity were determined for 109 wells. Mesozoic horizons from two regional marine two-dimensional (2-D) seismic datasets (approximately 3,300 miles) were interpreted. Eight map units were established for...
Core fragment descriptions, Exxon core holes, uplands bordering Yukon Flats basin, east-central Alaska
This Raw Data File provides lithologic descriptions of core fragments recovered from a series of core holes drilled by Exxon (mid-80s) in the uplands bordering the Yukon Flats basin. In addition to descriptions of the material, the tabulated file includes geographic location, core hole numbers, an age estimate, core fragment depth, general lithology, grain size, and facies interpretation. The author examined these core materials in Fairbanks during winter and spring 2002. This work was done in preparation for an assessment carried out by the U.S. Geological Survey of undiscovered, technically recoverable hydrocarbon resources in the Yukon Flats basin.
