Central and Eastern Gulf Biomarker and Isotope Study (CEGBIS)

The best seep samples from the eastern Gulf of Mexico (DeSoto Canyon, Lloyd Ridge, The Elbow) were extracted in 2000 for the Central and Eastern Gulf Biomarker and Isotope Study (CEGBIS). A total of 76 samples were chosen for state-of-the-art quantitative biomarker analyses (done by Baseline on large sediment samples) and carbon isotope analyses on saturate and aromatic hydrocarbon fractions. The biomarker data are of high quality and are clear in terms of constraining risk of resource value.
