Information to be Derived
Seismic reflection profiles
130 samples were taken on the shelf and in Yakutat Bay, and 2,000 km of
continuous seismic profiles have been analyzed in 1967. Submerged glacial
morraines were identified on the profiles in several areas, and one of them
appears to form one all of Yakutat Sea Valley, in part controlling the course of
this feature. The gross tectonic nature of the Continental Shelf was found to
change near Yakutat Bay. Southeast of the bay the outer margin of the shelf is a
northwest-trending anticlinal structure paralleling the coast, and the potential
for petroleum is good is source rocks exist. West of Yakutat Bay,
northeast-trending structures interrupt the coastal trend; their age and nature
are important factors in evaluating the petroleum potential west of this area.
