Biostratigraphy and dolomite porosity trends of the Lisburne Group

By:  and 



This preliminary study is based on measured and carefully collected sections of the Lisburne Group (fig. 1, sees. 1-29). The outcrops extend from Cape Lisburne (sec. 1) in the west to Egaksrak River (sec. 29) in northeastern Alaska and are used as the basic building blocks for the carbonate facies maps and the cross section. Lithologic and foraminifera samples were collected at 10-foot intervals and rugose corals were collected within each section where found. The rock material was cut into thin section, and petrographic and microfossil studies were made to determine environments of deposition, facies, diagenetic changes, and microfossil content. Coral collections were studied in thin section.
