Green Canyon/Mississippi Canyon

Relying on geophysical data available in 1987 to site 229 cores, this study identified geochemical anomalies over a broad region of central Green Canyon, as well as hydrocarbon seeps at specific locations in both Atwater and Green Canyon protraction areas. The findings established the widespread occurrence of hydrocarbon seeps along the upper slope.

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