Gulf Coast Geology Online Interactive Mapping System

Central Region Energy Team, Gulf of Mexico Integrated Science, USGS

This interactive mapping system is one component of the U. S. Geological Survey's Framework Studies and Assessment of the Gulf Coast Project. This project provides the geologic, geophysical, and geochemical framework for the region. The mapping system displays different aspects of the energy resources which reside in the Gulf of Mexico Basin, one of the major hydrocarbon producing areas of the world.
