Crustal Structure of Offshore Suriname Based on 2‐D Gravity and Magnetic Modeling
This study, based on the integration of 2-D gravity & magnetic modeling with seismic data, has determined the crustal structure and depth to Moho for offshore Suriname. Two (2) gravity and magnetic models have been generated showing the different crustal types associated with the two tectonic phases, Jurassic and Cretaceous, for opening of the basin. Mapping the crustal thickness, crustal type, crustal boundaries, and depth to Moho is extremely important to understanding the tectonic evolution of the basin and its impact on hydrocarbon generation.
