Geochemical, Geochronologic, Rock-Eval, and Spectral Gamma Ray Data for Selected Triassic Rocks in Northwestern Alaska

July 8, 2022

This set of data files contains analyses of samples representing the Triassic Shublik and Otuk Formations in Alaska. The samples were collected from the Brontosaurus 1 well and measured stratigraphic sections at Surprise Creek and Cape Lisburne. The data set includes total organic carbon (TOC), Rock-Eval (Tmax) data, geochemical data from inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectroscopy-mass spectroscopy (ICP-OES-MS) and X-ray diffraction (XRD), U-Pb zircon ages, and spectral gamma ray profiles. The data presented here are described and interpreted in a paper titled Biosiliceous, Organic-rich, and Phosphatic Facies of the Triassic in Northwest Alaska: Transect across a High-latitude, Low-angle Continental Margin.
