The study area incorporates all American and African Atlantic Margin basins from the southern Grand Banks of Newfoundland (eastern-most extension of the Scotian Basin) to the zone, which can be constructed from the northern Demerara Plateau to the southern Guinea Plateau. Onshore continental sections of the Central Atlantic margin have been evaluated to the extent of understanding their contributions to the offshore basins.
The critical work of collecting samples from core respositories in Bremen, Halifax and Newark resulted in a total of 1,100 samples for potential source rock characterization, fluid inclusions and apatite fission track studies.
Parameters of the full study include:
