AAPG Memoir 119

In the interest of informaton sharing and knowledge retention, and to motivate future geoscience research, Shell Exploration and Production Company has released a wide-ranging, yet detailed volume that should serve as a landmark work for the U.S. Chukchi Sea petroleum province. Well-researched and nicely appointed with numerous figures, maps, and large-format plates, Homza and Bergman systematically describe the stratigraphic and structural evolution of this very complex and compelling region.
The work is based on a wide variety of legacy and recently acquired data, the cornerstones of which are 2-D and 3-D seismic reflection data. These new data enable the refinement of previously published interpretations and the recognition of many formerly unreported elements. Comparisions of the geology beneath the U.S. Chukchi Shelf with that of better-known Alaskan, Canadian, and Russian Arctic regions are presented, illustrating both similarities and important differences. Interpretations from the scale of individual sedimentary beds are linked with those of crustal proportion in order to establish a singular, comprehensive model that may enhance the debates and deepen the general understanding of both local and regional Arctic geologic issues. The sequential geologic evolution section is a fascinating tectono-stratigraphic history involving orogenic-collapse, failed-rifting, inversion, volcanism, salt tectonics, karst and more than a few additional puzzling elements that can only be speculated upon at present. Placed in this broad geologic context, Homza and Bergman's introduction to the Chukchi Sea Petroleum Systems will likely strongly influence future exploration programs.
Abundant resources are provided within the volume that promote easy reference to previous work and specific topics, including a glossary of newly-introduced terms. This work should serve as a vital reference to academic, government, and industry researchers for many years.
