Student Research Projects:
- Support of two graduate student research projects:
- Support of one senior thesis project:
- Northern Gulf of Mexico Mesozoic Sediment Volume Estimates, Temporal and Fluvial Input Variability (Harry Hull, BS Honors Candidate, Geophysics)
Applied Science Goals:
- Development of new (seismic & well-based) Neogene paleogeographic and unit interval maps for deepwater Mexico. Development of predictive source-to-sink scaling relationships and assessment of drainage basin provenance in Mexico Neogene section.
- Construction of seismic & well-based basin-wide paleogeographic and unit interval maps
- 3D seismic mapping of Cenozoic and Mesozoic deposystems in the eastern Gulf of Mexico
- New southern GOM PETM source rock analyses, Chicxulub Impact Basin Sites M0077A, Mexico; comparison to US Paleogene slope/basin enhanced source rock habitats.
- Jurassic Oxfordian sandstone source terrane analysis, Mexico
- Update all GBDS Phase 11 GOM wide maps for Cenozoic and Mesozoic units with newly compiled wells and references, including Mexico offshore and onshore data based on open access Pemex reports and numerous (>100) university theses and dissertations).
- Continue delineation and mapping of pre-salt basins in northern GoM calibrated by detrital zircon provenance analysis through collaboration with B. Frederick (UKansas). Mapping of Mexico pre-salt basin extent, Campeche and Yucatan Margin
- Development of ten (10) basin scale cross-sections across entire GOM (US, Mexico, Cuba).
- Onshore northern Gulf of Mexico exploration play analysis and updated maps
GBDS Database, GIS and Tools:
- Add to GBDS well control with new released well logs/biostratigraphy (480 new in Phase 11)
- Add to GBDS reference set as new references are released (380 new in Phase 11)
- Maintain current GBDSGIS database and provide interim updates to sponsors
- Continue to update and refine GBDSTools as science requires including new LAS viewer
