The Gulf of Mexico covers an area of more than 1,500,000 sq km, has a maximum depth of about 3,700m, and includes many of the geomorphic features of large oceans. The continental shelf, slope, rise, and abyssal plain comprise the major physiographic provinces of the gulf and contain a variety of sub-provinces distinguished by topographic character and geomorphic history. The papers in this volume are divided into five sections: the setting; the concepts; regional stratigraphy and structure; character of the sediments; and intraslope basins

Unless the potential influence of hazards is taken into account in the design, installation, and operation of any offshore exploration and development structure, such structures can pose a threat that could result in pollution, damage, or loss of lives and equipment. This publication provides some kind of summary of current knowledge. Higher categories of geologic hazards as well as individual potentially hazardous geologic phenomena are described and discussed

Geology of the West Flower Garden Bank by Goldsborough Serpell Edwards( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The West Flower Garden Bank, located on the outer edge of the Texas-Louisiana continental shelf at longitude 93°49.0' west and latitude 27°52.6' north, was investigated with respect to the subsurface structure of the pre-reef pinnacle, the environment currently surrounding the pinnacle and the carbonate sediments being deposited on the bank. Based on previous gravity work and on 3.5 kHz, 1 cubic inch air gun and bathymetric profiles taken during this survey, the topographic high is shown to have been formed by the intrusion of a shallow salt plug. The central section of the dome is a collapsed area, flanked on the east, west and north by banks rising to within 10.5 fms (19 m) of the surface. Based on erosional and depositional surfaces of the bank, stillstands of the Gulf of Mexico waters during the last transgression were at 67-73 fms (121-134 m) sometime prior to 18,000 years B.P.; 40-45 fms (73-82 m) at 17,000-15,000 years B.P.; 48-50 fms (89-90 m) at 14,000-13,000 years B.P. and 28 fms (51 m) 13,000-12,000 years B.P. The Holocene sediments of the bank are (1) a Diploria-Montastrea-Porites Facies from 10.5 fms (19 m) to 27 fms (50 m); (2) a Coral Detritus Facies that interfingers with the Diploria-Montastrea-Porites Facies at 17 fms (31 m) and the Gypsina-Lithothamnium Facies at 27 fms (50 m); (3) a Gypsina-Lithothamnium Facies from 25 fms (46 m) to 40-45 fms (73-82 m); (4) the 1st Transition Facies from 28 fms (51 m) to 50 fms (91 m); (5) an Amphistegina Facies from 40 fms (70 m) to 55 fms (100 m); (6) the 2nd Transition Facies between the Amphistegina and Quartz-Planktonic Foraminiferal Facies; and (7) a Quartz-Planktonic Foraminiferal Facies from 50 fms (91 m) to the surrounding shelf.
Assessment of the factors controlling the long-term fate of dredged material deposited in unconfined subaqueous disposal areas : final report by David R Basco( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The distribution or dispersion of unconfined, subaqueous dredged material has received much attention for reasons of economy and pollution. If polluted it may affect the fauna and flora of surrounding areas. On the other hand, the material may quickly return to the dredged channel and require frequent maintenance dredging, proving the use of diked disposal areas to be more economical. The major objective of this literature study was to assess the factors that affect the long-term fate of dredged material deposited in unconfined, subaqueous disposal areas. These fundamental factors are thoroughly discussed in the report. In addition, the present knowledge of various methods and their limitations for determining dredged material dispersion were reviewed
Sound velocities in Gulf of Mexico sediments as related to physical properties and simulated overburden pressures by Paul John Cernock( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Compressional wave velocities, shear strength, and related physical properties were determined in twelve sediment cores form various physiographic provinces in the Gulf of Mexico. Sound velocities at 25°C and 185 kHz range from 1483-1719 m/sec. A linear relationship is shown between acoustic impedance and bulk density for data from eleven cores. Equations are presented which predict the bulk density of a sediment whose sound velocity is 1483 m/sec [less than or equal to] V[subscript SED] [less than or equal to] 1552 m/sec. Porosity of the sediment is then predicted from a linear relationship between porosity and bulk density; the median diameter is estimated form a broad, direct relationship between median diameter and sound velocity. Sound velocity was fund not to be related to carbonate content, cohesion or specific gravity of solids.
An investigation of changes induced in macrostructures in pelitic sediments during primary consolidation : report by Frank Bernard Chmelik( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This investigation of consolidation-induced changes in macrostructures is based on (1) the use of stereo X-ray radiography to map the macrostructures prior to and following consolidation and (2) a comparison of changes induced in artificial and natural macrostructures. Homogenous marine clay, fine grained quartz sand, and CuO powder were used to make twenty-two geometric macrostructures. An electro-osmotic cutting device was developed to facilitate model fabrication. Several types of coring devices, including two Flexible Liner Corers developed for this study, were used to collect cores form a variety of depositional environments.
