Bujak Research has worked closely with David Mudge Associates since 1990 on integrated biostratigraphic and sequence / lithostratigraphic studies in the circum North Atlantic and Arctic. This collaboration resulted in the publication of definitive papers, listed below, on the northeast Atlantic basins including the Faroe-Shetland, the North Sea, Porcupine and Rockall basins.
Our detailed studies synthesize and integrate data on:
- Quantitative biostratigraphy of all relevant microfossils
- Log interpretations of the sequence and lithostratigraphy
- Tectonic and volcanic events, including local and regional uplift and subsidence surfaces
- Palaeobathymetry, depositional facies, palaeotemperature and oceanic chemistry
These multiple data sets are synthesized and integrated in a variety of templates tailored to individual studies, including the example below for the Paleocene section in Faroe-Shetland well 208/17-1.
We are also pleased to conduct exclusive, confidential studies for clients and these can be integrated, when required, with our regional studies and clients’ existing databases.
