Geology and Oil Development in Alaska: Abstract

J. Ben Carsey1


This is a review of the regional geology of Alaska from the standpoint of possible oil production. Several general maps which show the physiographic and regional geologic and structural setting are used to introduce the talk. The more important sedimentary basins are discussed, and the petroleum development is briefly reviewed. The talk is illustrated with a number of kodachromes showing details of the stratigraphy and structure as well as views of some of the more spectacular mountains and other areas of interest.
