The book breaks the Gulf into several sections, providing maps for each, Gulf of Mexico deep-water foraminifers book the maps are unusually good. The sections include Mexican waters, the Northern coast of Cuba, the Gulf's Loop Current, the Florida Middle Ground, the northernmost coral reefs (off the Texas and Louisiana coasts), and the continental shelf.5/5(4).

Filled with telling detail and hard facts, this book is a must-read for anyone who wants to know the causes and the consequences of the blowout at BP's Deepwater Horizon rig in the Gulf of Mexico, America's richest aquatic ecosystem. It includes compelling human stories of the fishermen, Cited by: 5.

This ringbound book and DVD-ROM set provides an encyclopedic collection of up-to-date documents, images, and videos about every aspect of the Deepwater Horizon - BP disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, from the initial explosion to the containment and cleanup effort, federal government and industry response, and investigation - along with guides to oil spill cleanup and environmental impacts.1/5(1).

Bathyal and abyssal foraminifera in the Gulf of Mexico are distributed among thirteen generic predominance facies. Five predominance facies nearly encircle the Gulf basin along the slope and rise; a sixth predominance facies blankets the Sigsbee Plain, and a seventh is restricted to the Mississippi Fan.

The remaining eight predominance facies have more restricted distributions. The deep-water ecology study along the northern continental slope and abyssal plain of the Gulf of Mexico (figs.

Deepwater Horizon oil spill of path of the oil Map depicting the effects of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, caused by the explosion of an oil rig off the coast of Louisiana on Ap Scientists noted that the prevailing paths of the Gulf of Mexico's Loop Current and a detached eddy located to the west kept much of the oil, which covered a sizable part of the gulf some three.

The Alaminos Fan is a moderate sized, mud-dominated submarine fan located in the southern Alaminos Canyon protraction area in the northwestern deep Gulf of Mexico (Figs. ).The fan is bounded to the north by the salt tongues of the Sigsbee Escarpment; to the west and northwest, the fan thins and laps out against the Perdido Foldbelt, a major northwest-trending Oligocene-age deep-water foldbelt.
