Abstract

Exploration for petroleum on the Continental Shelf and Slope off the eastern United States has generated great interest in the quantity and quality of data available to evaluate the nature and magnitude of possible geological enveironmental hazards.  This set of maps presents a compilation of publicly available geological and geophysical data acquireed by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in the Baltimore Canyon Trough area of the eastern United States Outer Continental Shelf and Slope.  Funding for the collection and analysis of much of the data indicated in this report was provided by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.  Locations of blocks leased for petroleum development and locations of industry wells terminated or being drilled as of February 1980, as well as several other sampling sites, are included for comparison.
