Potential Fields and Structural Study of the Howley Basin
Student: Linden Ernst Co-investigator: Tom Calon
The Howley Basin in western Newfoundland is a potential source of hydrocarbons. The field part of this study involved extensive field mapping of surficial structure; gravity and RTK surveying over land and ice; and a GPR bathymetric survey of Sandy Lake. Pre-existing magnetics and gravity data was incorporated into the processing to produce a model of the depth and structure of the Howley Basin and its hydrocarbon potential.
