This publication is a preliminary map and geodatabase of the coseismic surface rupture and other coseismic features generated from the August 9, 2020, Mw 5.1 earthquake near Sparta, North Carolina. Geologic mapping facilitated by analysis of post-earthquake quality level 0 to 1 lidar, document the coseismic surface rupture, named the Little River fault, and other coseismic features. The Little River fault is traced for approximately 4 kilometers and cuts the regional Paleozoic fabric (mean foliation, 063°/57°), and the dominant strike of joint sets are 0°–10°, 130°–150° and 320°–340°. Individual fault strands occur in an en echelon pattern within an approximately 10-meter-wide zone. Trenches across the Little River...

Paleo-water depth is an important component of modeling surface temperatures through time. Paleo-water depth values represent the elevation of the sediment-water interface relative to global mean sea level at a particular point in geologic time. In most of the model time steps, paleo-water depth values were treated uniformly (single value) across the modeled area of interest, as a simplifying assumption. Most of the model layers were deposited in marine conditions, where the sediment-water interface was below mean sea level (positive paleo-water depths); however, the ground surface of the Williston Basin is now several thousand feet above sea-level, and the Cenozoic model layers were likely deposited in continental...

The stratigraphic horizon grids were generated by picking formation tops in 16,200 borehole geophysical logs and interpolating between them in the Williston Basin of North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana. Collectively, the horizon grids outline the structural framework of the Williston Basin from the ground surface to the crystalline basement. The grids define the boundary surfaces between geologic layers in the 3D petroleum systems model. Not every horizon in the petroleum systems model, however, ties to a specific interpreted set of formation tops (see the ‘Williston_Basin_data_overview.csv’ table to see which horizons were derived from interpreted formation tops). Some horizons were split/calculated to accommodate...

This describes 28 thickness point shapefiles that represent true vertical thickness (TVT) values by calculating the difference between stratigraphically adjacent formation tops picked on borehole geophysical logs. In wells where adjacent formation tops are missing, no TVT value is calculated. The TVT values are a measure of vertical thickness and do not account for the structural dip of units encountered in the wellbore. In total, the dataset contains 115,789 TVT values calculated in 16,200 wells from the Williston Basin of North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana. This is a child item of a larger data release titled "Data release for the 3D petroleum systems model of the Williston Basin, USA".

Basal heat flow from the crystalline basement and lithospheric mantle into the sedimentary column is a required boundary condition in the petroleum systems model. The model uses two basal heat flow conditions that are described using two ASCII grids that show map variations in heat flow (mW/m2). The “BHF000_BasalHeatFlow_Calib.asc” grid describes the modern-day basal heat flow calibrated to, and derived from subsurface temperature data, including 24 high-resolution static temperature logs from the North Dakota Geological Survey and a large proprietary dataset (>1,000) of drill stem test (DST) and bottom hole temperatures (BHT) from boreholes throughout Montana and North Dakota provided by IHS Markit ® (2022).

The model layer facies grids describe geographic variations in lithology mixtures (facies) used in the 3D petroleum systems model of the Williston Basin. The grids provide constraints on the physical properties used in the model simulation, including mechanical compaction, thermal conductivity, heat capacity, radiogenic heat, porosity and permeability trends, diagenesis, and capillary entry pressures. The grids were derived from borehole geophysical log signatures from two key model layers: the middle member of the Devonian-Mississippian Bakken Formation and the Upper Ordovician Icebox Formation. All the other model layers used a single lithology mixture and were not represented by gridded facies maps. This is a...

The thermal maturity grids are results generated from the petroleum systems model for five major source rock intervals, which include, from youngest to oldest, the Tyler, Mission Canyon, upper part of the Bakken, Red River, and Icebox Formations. The units are in equivalent vitrinite reflectance using the Nielsen et al. (2017) Basin%Ro kinetic model. Note: these grids represent the modeled thermal maturity of the source interval horizon and may extend beyond the lithostratigraphic extent of the inferred source rock; they cover the entire petroleum systems model area of interest. This is a child item of a larger data release titled "Data release for the 3D petroleum systems model of the Williston Basin, USA".

This Data Release accompanies the publication "State of stress in areas of active unconventional oil and gas development in North America" by J.-E. Lund Snee (now J.-E. Lundstern) and M.D. Zoback (2022) in the AAPG Bulletin. This dataset provides maximum horizontal stress (SHmax) orientation and relative stress magnitude (faulting regime) information that comprise a new-generation crustal stress map for North America. Relative stress magnitudes are presented using the Aϕ (A_phi) parameter, a single scalar that represents the ratio of the three principal stress magnitudes. Data were collected between 2015 and 2022. Data points for SHmax orientations, relative stress magnitudes, and the earthquake focal mechanisms...

This Data Release accompanies the planned publication, "Paleogene sedimentary basin development in southern Nevada, USA." Included here are U-Pb detrital zircon and Ar/Ar feldspar geochronologic data for middle Cenozoic sedimentary and volcanic rocks collected by Jens-Erik Lundstern and Theresa M. Schwartz in several parts of southern Nevada, U.S. The target strata are the lowest Cenozoic sedimentary rocks deposited above the base-Cenozoic unconformity. U-Pb detrital zircon data were obtained at the University of Arizona LaserChron Center in Tucson, Arizona in February 2021, October 2021, and January 2023. 40Ar/39Ar geochronologic data were collected at the U.S. Geological Survey in Denver, Colorado.

This item contains linework that represents fault rupture and ground deformation features interpreted from field-based maps and observations, as well as airborne imagery, lidar, and geodetic imagery products. Provisional maps of fault rupture and ground deformation are composed of a “mashup” of linework from these various sources, obtained and compiled as of December, 2019. If more than one linework representation exists for a segment of the fault rupture, linework showing the most rupture detail or best location accuracy, based on the judgment of the compiler, is preserved. On provisional maps, less than 25% of the linework is derived from high-resolution optical imagery and detailed field mapping. Because line...

The missing section grids describe geographic variations in erosion associated with unconformities in the 3D petroleum systems model. The grid values provide inputs for the model to restore layer thicknesses prior to erosion events and at the time of deposition. Each missing section grid here describes the depth of material that was eroded at 70, 50, 43, and 20 million years ago in the model. This is a child item of a larger data release titled "Data release for the 3D petroleum systems model of the Williston Basin, USA".

The subsurface temperature grids are results/outputs from the 3D petroleum systems model. They represent modern subsurface temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit extracted onto the stratigraphic horizons in the model. The temperature values are calibrated using 24 high-resolution static temperature logs provided by the North Dakota Geological Survey and a large proprietary dataset (>1,000) of drill stem test (DST) and bottom hole temperatures (BHT) from boreholes throughout Montana and North Dakota provided by IHS Markit ® (2022). This is a child item of a larger data release titled "Data release for the 3D petroleum systems model of the Williston Basin, USA".

A 3D petroleum systems model requires that the temperature at the sediment surface be defined at each geological time step. Generally, surface temperature can be modeled from paleo-elevation or paleo-water depth history, as well as the paleo-latitude of the basin and global climate patterns through time. The PetroMod software, from which the 3D petroleum systems model was generated, uses the Sediment-Water Interface Temperature (SWIT) tool to help define these boundary conditions. In most time steps, the model assumes that paleo-water depth/elevation was flat and uniform across the basin. In these time steps, surface temperatures in the model do not vary across the basin and are determined by the paleo-latitude...
