Be the first. Parry Channel, a seaway connecting Baffin Bay with the western Arctic Ocean, separates the Queen Elizebeth Islands to the north from another group of islands to the south. Rugged mountain ranges with extensive ice caps in the eastern part of the archipelago, and plateaus, lowlands, and a coastal plain in the western part, are all dissected by numerous channels and fiords (Dawes and Christie, Ch.

The US Geological Survey estimates the Arctic could contain 1, Tcf of natural gas and 90 Bbo, or 30% of the world’s undiscovered gas and 13% of its oil, plus deposits of precious and rare earth metals and massive fishery resources.

The new Geological Map of the Arctic is the most complex document ever produced in the year history of the Geological Survey of Canada (Natural Resources Canada).

The map is a collaborative effort incorporating data contributed by the geological surveys of Canada, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia and the United States. The vast Arctic region contains nine proven petroleum provinces with giant resources but over half of the sedimentary basins are completely undrilled, making the region the last major frontier for conventional oil and gas exploration.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the geology and the petroleum potential of the Arctic. Nine papers offer a circum-Arctic perspective on the.

REVEALED FROM BIOMARKERS OF THE SVERDRUP BASIN, CANADIAN ARCTIC M. Obermajer, K. Dewing Geological Survey of Canada, Calgary, Canada The Sverdrup Basin is one of the major geological structures in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.

It covers the area ofkm and contains over 8, m of Mesozoic sedimentary sequences. Geology and assessment of undiscovered oil and gas resources of the Sverdrup Basin Province, Arctic Canada, The Sverdrup Basin Province, an area ofsquare kilometers on the northern margin of North America, extends 1, kilometers across the Canadian Arctic Islands from near the Mackenzie Delta to northern Ellesmere Island.

Natural Resources Canada Description The Geological Map of the Arctic is a seamless, internally-consistent, geological, physiographic, and tectonic compilation and database for all onshore and offshore Precambrian and Phanerozoic map units at scale, in the Arctic.

At first glance, it might seem there’s little more to the Arctic than frozen tundra, ice and seawater, but the top of the world is home to some unique geology and an impressive array of mineral resources. A new project led by the Geological Survey of Norway (GSN) has compiled all existing geologic data about the Circum-Arctic region into a book, database and interactive map.
