The book contains 45 extensively illustrated articles. It starts with papers on the Mesozoic source rocks, and oceanic natural gas clatrates in the Arctic, respectively. Then follow articles on the regional and petroleum geology of the main regions; Greenland, North American Arctic, Soviet Arctic and the Barents Sea. Since Tertiary sediments are considered much later than marine Paleozoic and Mesozoic sediments, advocates reason that the mammals must be the progeny of those animals that survived on the Ark, and thus, post-Flood. Tertiary mammals are found in the high intermountain basins in the western United States and in High Plains strata. MESOZOIC STRATIGRAPHY AT DURANGO, COLORADO SPENCER G. LUCAS AND ANDREW B. HECKERT New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, Mountain Rd. NW, Albuquerque, NM ABSTRACT.—A nearly 3-km-thick section of Mesozoic sedimentary rocks is exposed at Durango, Colorado. This section con-. The aim of the book is to give an updated overview of the geology of the Arctic sedimentary basins and their petroleum potential. Although the different basins vary significantly as regards sedimentary fill and tectonic evolution, many of the basins share some of the characteristics needed to become prolific oil and gas provinces.

They are situated near the geographic center of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and encompass the north magnetic pole. Most of the area is covered by sedimentary rocks of Ordovician to Late Devonian age, with a composite exposed thickness of approximat feet.   5. Summary and Conclusions. 1. The Lomonosov Ridge is a continuous band of continental crust extending across the Arctic Ocean from just north of Greenland to the Siberian continental margin (Figures 1 2–3) [e.g., Sweeney et al., ; Forsyth and Mair, ; Jokat et al., ]. It separates the Mesozoic Amerasian Basin from the Cenozoic. Book Chapter (1) Article Type. Facet list.

North America is a continent entirely within the Northern Hemisphere and almost all within the Western can also be described as a northern subcontinent of the Americas, or America, in models that use fewer than seven continents. It is bordered to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the east by the Atlantic Ocean, to the west and south by the Pacific Ocean, and to the southeast by.

The Canadian Arctic Rift System is a major North American geological structure extending from the Labrador Sea in the southeast through Davis Strait, Baffin Bay and the Arctic Archipelago in the northwest.

It consists of a series of interconnected rifts that formed during the Paleozoic, Canadian Arctic Archipelago. book and Cenozoic eras. Extensional stresses along the entire length of the rift system have resulted in Age: Paleozoic-to-Cenozoic.

THE PRESENCE of Mesozoic and Tertiary rocks in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago has been known for many years. Jurassic fossils were the first to be found, by Sir Leopold M’Clintock inwhile searching for Sir John Franklin (Haughton, ).

Geological setting of Sverdrup basin The detailed Mesozoic history of the Canadian Arctic Islands, in terms of stratigraphy, sedimentation and depositional history, is described by Embry ( 1). Figure 2 shows the distribution and thickness of Mesozoic strata, including total well control in Sverdrup Basin (Figure 2a) and a number of wells in.

Abstract. The early Tertiary southern Arctic was an important biogeographic exchange route between the Old and New Worlds.

A variant of the nearest living relative method of paleoclimatic estimation suggests that the mean temperature of the coldest month of the Eocene southern Arctic was about 10 °C, with the possibility of limited frost.

Carboniferous and Permian stratigraphy of Axel Heiberg Island and western Ellesmere Island, Canadian Arctic Archipelago. The tectonic framework and depositional settings of the Orphan Basin are studied using ~25, km of 2-D seismic reflection profiles and stratigraphic data from nine key exploration wells.

The evolution of the region is recorded in five seismic distinct stratigraphic units (Z, A, B, C, X), each separated from one another by widespread regional markers U1-U4, representing prominent unconformities.

The general geology of the islands of the Arctic Archipelago has been described and mapped on a small scale by the Geological Survey of Canada, but the detailed geology is known in only a very few small areas.

Systematic mapping of the region has hardly begun. Only a general account of the geology. Henderson, C.M.
