Map and Digital Database of Sedimentary Basins and Indications of Petroleum in the Central Alaska Province

Lappi David, LAPP Resources, Inc.

This USGS site provides brief discussions of several Alaskan sedimentary basins and structural terranes. This map and the accompanying digital database show sedimentary basins (Kirschner, 1988) and reported occurrences of petroleum in wells and natural seeps in central Alaska. The map and database were prepared for use in a U.S. Geological Survey assessment of undiscovered petroleum resources.
