Structure Contour Map of Pre-Mesozoic Basement, Landward Margin of Baltimore Canyon Trough
Newark, DE: Delaware Geological Survey, University of Delaware
The structure contour map of pre-Mesozoic basement indicates the structural complexity of the landward margin of the Baltimore Canyon trough, especially that shown by the buried rift basins of probable early Mesozoic age. Information on depth to basement is important in determining the economic limit of drilling through overlying rocks in the search for oil and gas.
