Beaufort Margin Heat Flow Study, 2016


License Not Specified

In this study, we document and analyze 103 new heat flow measurements along four transects coincident with multi-channel seismic (MCS) data that extend from the U.S. Beaufort shelf edge to ~2000 meters below sea level (mbsl) . We acquired new heat flow data in the U.S. Beaufort Sea during the period September 12th-22nd, 2016, on the M/V Norseman II using Oregon State University’s multi-penetration heat flow probe (MPHF). Measurements were made along four transects starting in water depths as shallow as 200 m and extending to depths as deep as 1700 mbsl and coincident with 1977 USGS MCS data (Grantz et al., 1982; Phrampus et al., 2014).
