To date, most condensates and gases found in the Hammerfest Basin exist in distal, central basin settings, in traps with tight cap rocks of class 1 traps, whereas low-gas–oil-ratio (GOR) oils occur systematically in proximal basin settings, where cap rocks of class 3 traps prevail.

DL Abstract

 

During the last glacial maximum (LGM), the Antarctic ice sheets expanded, reaching the shelf break in many places, including in the Antarctic Peninsula (AP); since the end of the LGM (~14,000 years ago) ice has retreated back to its current position, leaving a suite of subglacial geomorphic features on the seafloor. Sedimentary archives sequestered in deep fjords have formed under marine conditions, recording the ongoing glacial retreat and climatic fluctuations.

During times of past extensive glaciations, the Antarctic ice sheet extended from its current position, reaching across the continental shelf. As the ice sheet retreated to its modern extent, the shrinking ice sheet left behind seawater, rather than ancient ice, leaving behind a sedimentary signature of deglacial history.

AAPG is the largest geoscience organization in the free world, and its members know more about frontier areas now being explored than anyone else. Part of our scientific responsibility is to act as advisers, not advocates for one political stand – either for or against climate change. AAPG needs to be part of the conversation.

“I’m tired of talking about women in geosciences.” That’s Susan R. Eaton, president of SR ECO Consultants, Inc., and not to put too fine a point on this, longtime correspondent for the EXPLORER, when asked about being featured in this very “Women in Geosciences” issue.
