The Barents Sea is situated on the north-western corner of the Eurasian plate and covers an area of approximately million km2 (Ohm et al., ), and is one of the largest continental shelfs on the Earth today (Smelror et al., ). The Barents Sea is limited by the Norwegian.   Petroleum geoscience comprises those geoscientific disciplines which are of greatest significance for the exploration and recovery of oil and gas. These include petroleum geology, of which sedimentary geology is the main foundation along with the contextual and modifying principles of regional, tectonic and structural geology. Additionally, biostratigraphy and micropalaeontology, 5/5(1).

The vast Arctic region contains nine proven petroleum provinces with giant resources but over half of the sedimentary basins are completely undrilled, making the region the last major frontier for conventional oil and gas exploration.

This book focuses on the methods and techniques of shallow subsurface geophysical exploration. The book weighs the relative utility of various methods, including seismic methods, refraction seismology, the new technique of reflection seismology, electrical resistivity, and micro-gravity investigations, and details their application to exploration activities at shallow depths/5(4).

The southern half of the Barents Sea, including the ports of Murmansk (Russia) and Vardø (Norway) remain ice-free year round due to the warm North Atlantic September, the entire Barents Sea is more or less completely ice-free. Until the Winter War (–40), Finland's territory also reached to the Barents Sea.

Its harbor at Petsamo was Finland's only ice-free winter countries: Norway and Russia. Sparker and shallow drilling data indicate that the Quaternary deposits in the Central Deep of the Barents Sea are mainly composed of glacigenic sediments.

They comprise basal till and proximal and distal glaciomarine sediments deposited during the last glacial cycle. Apparent glaciotectonic features imply strong glacial erosion of Mesozoic Cited by: Geology and Geophysics.

In Geological Aspects of Franz Josef Land and the Northernmost Barents Sea (eds Solheim, A, Musatov, E and Heinz, N), pp. 24 – Norsk Polarinstututt, Tromsø, Meddelelser The book's coverage of structural and tectonic modelling, petroleum geology applications, and the treatment of the Norwegian Continental Shelf should make this book an invaluable resource book for advanced students of structural and tectonic modelling, teachers, and researchers; as well as for geologists and geophysicists in the petroleum industry.

The Demarcation Line Treaty with Russia opened up new areas of ocean for geological mapping. The new results from the Barents Sea are presented in the MAREANO programme’s updated book on the Norwegian sea floor. The book contains the results of 10 years mapping in the Norwegian and Barents.

The geology of the region, which still today represents exploration frontiers, is illustrated by a series of geophysical and paleogeographic maps, which are based on the integrated knowledge from Russian and Norwegian institutions. The paleogeographic map span from the Early Devonian to Eocene times, and are supplemented by geophysical maps and cross-sections showing the present day architecture.

Abstract. We present an example from the Hoop area of the Barents Sea showing a sequential. The south-western Barents Sea is characterized by a complex geological regime, with a heterogeneous overburden and different target depths (arrows). The combination of relatively shallow water depths and a hard, rugose sea floor, creates a tremendous amount of noise.

This book presents the geological and geophysical history of the Barents Sea region along with the discovery of the Mjølnir impact crater.

We place the Mjølnir event into the geological framework of the region and present elaborative numerical models of its formation and associated tsunami generation. The continental crust beneath the western Barents Sea has been acoustically imaged down to Moho depths in a large scale deep seismic reflection experiment.

A first-order pattern of crustal reflectivity has been established and the thickness of the crust determined. The objective of the project is to model and estimate the nitrate reduction in shallow aquifers (top 30 meters) at the scale of an entire catchment and at the resolution of each farm field.

The geophysical mapping forms the basis of the detailed geological and hydrological models for determining the transport and reduction of nitrate in the.
