New data and revised processing methods yielded a revised understanding of the geothermics of the Phanerozoic strata in Saskatchewan. Temperatures increase with depth from 5 °C at 100 m to 120 °C at 3200 m. Average integral geothermal gradients range between 25 and 30 °C•km-1. Geothermal...
Sedimentology, ichnology, and sequence stratigraphy of the Middle-Upper Eocene succession in the Fayum Depression, EgyptDownload
Middle-Upper Eocene successions were studied in the Fayum Depression in order to establish depositional and paleoenvironmental models that link the ichnological and sedimentologic data to relative sea-level changes in a sequence stratigraphic framework. Five facies associations (FA1- FA5) are...
Carbon isotope analyses of gases extracted from drilling muds while drilling in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) can be used to create carbon isotopic depth profiles. These profiles provide essentially continuous data through the stratigraphic section, offering a unique opportunity to...
The increasing anthropogenic pressure on biodiversity in the tropics is resulting in changes to ecosystem structure and increasing species extinction rates (Collen et al. 2013). These issues are heightened in the tropics where 50% of the world’s biodiversity is held in 7% of the world’s...
Paleodepositional Environments and Stratigraphic Framework for the Lower Cretaceous Bluesky Formation and Related Strata in the Peace River Oil Sands Deposit of AlbertaDownload
The Early Cretaceous Bluesky Formation in the Peace River oil sands area of west-central Alberta, Canada hosts significant bitumen resources. This work is part of an ongoing endeavour by researchers and practitioners in academia and industry to develop paleodepositional and sequence stratigraphic...
Stratigraphic and Structural Relationships in the Foreland Basin and Humber Arm Allochthon on Port au Port Peninsula, western NewfoundlandDownload
Port au Port Peninsula, in western Newfoundland, sits at the western edge of the Appalachian orogen. Middle Ordovician foreland basin strata deposited on the Laurentian margin are primarily derived from, and overridden by, Cambrian to Ordovician deep-water rocks previously mapped as mélange and...
The recent discovery of the mineral jarosite (KFe3(OH)6(SO4)2) in the MIL 03346 martian meteorite is important because jarosite forms from acidic, oxidizing waters. Jarosite occurrences in the MIL 03346 martian meteorite were studied to characterize the mineral in-situ. Backscattered electron...
Sedimentology, stratigraphy, and chronology of the Northwestern Outlet of glacial Lake Agassiz, northeastern AlbertaDownload
Lake Agassiz was dammed on the retreating southern and western margins of the Laurentide Ice Sheet during the end of the last Ice Age. Periodic discharges of freshwater from the lake basin have been implicated in altering oceanic circulation and impacting global climate. Meltwater from a rapid...
Characterization of the Geothermal Resource at Clarke Lake Field Northeast British ColumbiaDownload
Clarke Lake is a depleted gas fi eld developed in carbonate platform deposits of the Slave Point Formation (Middle Devonian) in northeastern British Columbia, Canada. It displays anomalously high reservoir temperature and strong water drive, making it a candidate for repurposing as a source of...
