Alaska Division of Oil and Gas personnel collected and interpreted various data sources related to the interpretation of the Base Tertiary unconformity surface in the Cook Inlet Basin, Alaska.Data sources included public literature, public well data information (from the AOGCC-Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission), a palynology database (Greater Cook Inlet Stratigraphic Palynology Control Database and Stud,Zippi, P.A., 2006) and over 2000 miles of 2D marine seismic data (CI-88 and CI-89 licensed from, and complements of, CGGVeritas.) Interpreted formation tops of the Base Tertiary unconformity are tabulated on the map.
Between 27 and 11 kyr ago, during the last major (Naptowne) glaciation, the northwestern and western Kenai Peninsula and the Cook Inlet trough were covered by ice except for local nunataks and small refugia, like the Caribou Hills. Landforms related to four glacial stades are recognized and paleogeographic maps document ice limits, drainage systems, glacial-impounded lakes, and glaciomarine terraces. Numerous multidisciplinary studies of glacial, vegetation, and insect histories document Holocene climatic changes.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate a potential tsunami risk for communities of Homer and Seldovia in the Kachemak Bay area, Alaska. This report provides guidance to the local emergency managers in tsunami hazard assessment. We used a numerical modeling method to estimate the extent of inundation due to tsunami waves generated by earthquake sources. Our tsunami scenarios included a repeat of the tsunami of the 1964 great Alaska earthquake, as well as a hypothetical tsunami wave generated by a local fault source. We didn't consider landslide-generated tsunamis in this study. Results of numerical modeling combined with historical observations in the region are intended to help local emergency services officials...
Palynological analysis of 228 outcrop samples from the Kenai, Seldovia, and Tyonek quadrangles, Cook Inlet region, Alaska
The palynological samples included in this report were collected as part of the Alaska Department of Natural Resources' (Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) and Alaska Division of Oil & Gas (DOG)) Cook Inlet Basin Analysis program. The focus of this program is to evaluate the stratigraphic trap potential and reservoir quality of coal-bearing Cenozoic strata in upper Cook Inlet basin and the reservoir quality of Mesozoic strata throughout the basin. The samples included in this report were collected in the Tyonek, Kenai, and Seldovia Quadrangles from September 2006 through July 2010. All samples in this report were processed by Russ Harms in Medicine Toenail Alberta, Canada. Prepared slides...
Mercury injection capillary pressure results from outcrop samples in the Kaguyak, Naknek, and West Foreland formations, Iniskin Peninsula region, Alaska
This publication provides mercury injection capillary pressure (MICP) data for 36 outcrop samples collected from the Kaguyak, Naknek, and West Foreland formations in the Iniskin Peninsula region of Cook Inlet. The publication files provide: sample names, coordinates, and the formation from which samples were collected; per-sample pore aperture size distribution charts; formation pore volume graphs and data; pore system properties of each formation from which samples were analyzed; and correspondence from PetroTech Associates describing the methods used in MICP analyses of the samples, and a brief summary of the data
