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.

Records in this collection are classified into one of four categories that best characterizes the data contained within the borehole record. The classifications are: Geotechnical: Boreholes and pits created with the intent to gain a detailed understanding of the subsurface lithology and soil or rock properties therein. These records have additional data beyond lithologic descriptions including penetrometer resistance, shear and strength tests, density measurements, etc. Lithologic borings: Boreholes are drill solely for the purpose of identifying subsurface lithology. Material testing techniques were not used (or the results are not provided) to allow for a more detailed understanding of subsurface material properties....
PRD1, an icosahedra-shaped, 62 nm (diameter), double-stranded DNA bacteriophage with an internal membrane, has emerged as an important model virus for studying the manner in which microorganisms are transported through a variety of groundwater environments. The popularity of this phage for use in transport studies involving geologic media is due, in part, to its relative stability over a range of temperatures and low degree of attachment in aquifer sediments. Laboratory and field investigations employing PRD1 are leading to a better understanding of viral attachment and transport behaviors in saturated geologic media and to improved methods for describing mathematically subsurface microbial transport at environmentally...
The effects of a dilute (ionic strength = 5 × 10−3 M) plume of treated sewage, with elevated levels (3.9 mg/L) of dissolved organic carbon (DOC), upon the pH-dependency and magnitude of bacterial transport through an iron-laden, quartz sand aquifer (Cape Cod, MA) were evaluated using sets of replicate, static minicolumns. Compared with uncontaminated groundwater, the plume chemistry diminished bacterial attachment under mildly acidic (pH 5.0–6.5) in-situ conditions, in spite of the 5-fold increase in ionic strength and substantively enhanced attachment under more alkaline conditions. The effects of the hydrophobic neutral and total fractions of the plume DOC; modest concentrations of fulvic and humic acids (1.5...

The 'Vulture: Placer Evaluation and Recommendations' file is part of the A. F. Budge Mining Ltd. Mining collection. A. F. Budge Mining Ltd., a British company owned by Tony Budge, controlled properties across several western U. S. states and northern Mexico. The company was active in Arizona during the 1980s and into the early 1990s. The collection consists of economic geologic information including maps, logs, reports and records. A few properties make up most of the collection: Vulture, United Verde Extension and Korn Kob.

A water right is a legal right to use surface or ground water under the Alaska Water Use Act (AS 46.15).A water right allows a specific amount of water from a specific water source to be diverted, impounded,or withdrawn for a specific use. When a water right is granted, it becomes appurtenant to the land wherethe water is being used for as long as the water is used. If the land is sold, the water right transferswith the land to the new owner, unless the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) approves its separationfrom the land. In Alaska, because water wherever it naturally occurs is a common property resource, landownersdo not have automatic rights to ground water or surface water. For example, if a farmer has...

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...

Iron-reducing and oxidizing microorganisms gain energy through reduction or oxidation of iron, and by doing so play an important role in the geochemical cycling of iron. This study was undertaken to investigate mineral transformations associated with microbial reduction of Fe3+ and oxidation of Fe2+ in solid minerals. A fluid sample from the 2450 m depth of the Chinese Continental Scientific Drill­ing project was collected, and Fe3+-reducing and Fe2+-oxidizing microorganisms were enriched. The enrichment cultures displayed reduction of Fe3+ in nontronite and ferric citrate, and oxidation of Fe2+ in vivianite, siderite, and monosulfide (FeS). Additional experiments verified that the iron reduction and oxidation was...

A temporary water use authorization may be needed if the amount of water to be used is a significantamount, the use continues for less than five consecutive years, and the water to be used is notappropriated. This authorization does not establish a water right but will avoid conflicts withfisheries and existing water right holders.This shape file characterizes the geographic representation of land parcels within the Stateof Alaska contained by the Temporary Water Use Permit - Subsurface category. It has beenextracted from data sets used to produce the State status plats. This data set includescases noted on the digital status plats up to one day prior to data extraction.Each feature has an associated attribute record,...
