National Petroleum Reserve, Alaska, (NPRA) Legacy Seismic Data Archive

The National Petroleum Reserve, Alaska, (NPRA) Legacy Data Archive represents one of the largest geological and geophysical data sets held by the U.S. Geological Survey.  Two exploration programs by the U.S. Navy and USGS collected over 12,000 line miles of seismic data and drilled 28 wells.  These programs generated a vast amount of data, analyses, and documents, much of which is presented here.
