Abstract

The Atlas of Deep-Water Outcrops (AAPG Studies in Geology 56) is a collection of both qualitative and quantitative data on deep-water outcrops from around the world that includes all seven continents and 21 countries (Figure 1; Table 1). These outcrops also span most of the geologic time scale (Table 2). The Atlas includes both a hardcopy version and CD. The hardcopy version presents data on 103 separate outcrops as well as summary overview papers on those areas with multiple outcrops. Other papers are on selected topics that summarize the types of deep-water deposits, seismic modeling of outcrops, current outcrop study techniques, use of outcrop data in reservoir modeling, and special types of deep-water deposits such as injectites. The companion CD includes 38 journal-style articles on the overview topics and more detailed reviews of selected outcrops.

There are many individual and summary publications on deep-water fields and reservoirs, outcrops, and on modern submarine analogs. The goal of this publication is to not repeat but to build on this previous work by providing new and consistent data that more fully describe the various architectures present in deep-water outcrop deposits. This Atlas provides the first collection of quantitative architectural data on deep-water outcrops that may be used for reservoir modeling. The hardcopy version is designed with a standard format for the presentation of key outcrop descriptive information (Executive Summary, location maps, geologic setting, photomosaics, etc.) and quantitative data (statistics in a spreadsheet format such as bed thicknesses, bed lengths, net-to-gross
