Western Gulf Consortium II

The Western Gulf Consortium II (1997) in-filled the regional coverage of the 1996 Western Gulf Consortium with an additional 230 piston cores. In addition to identifying several new seep occurrences, biomarker analysis of the seeps addressed the question of carbonate source facies in this deep-water region.

Deliverables for this study include PDF images of core logs (core locations and descriptions), data volumes with the results of the following analyses: total scanning fluorescence, C15+ gas chromatography, C1-C4 hydrocarbons (headspace), isotope, and biomarker, and a final, interpretive report.
