Which of the following statements is true?
The most extensive deposits of coal occur in Carboniferous-age strata.

The Deepwater Horizon disaster was
a catastrophic blowout that occurred in April 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico.
A seal rock
is a necessary ingredient of a conventional oil trap.
What is the biggest environmental risk of mining?
reactions between tailing piles and rainwater that pollute water sources and damage vegetation
are rock units that have a significant concentration of metals.
The oil window is the
relatively narrow range of temperatures in which oil can form: 90°C to 160°C.
In which order does coal develop?
peat, lignite, bituminous coal, anthracite
Oil forms when
dead algae and plankton deposited in low-oxygen conditions are buried and heated.
This image shows geophysical data collected from the Gulf of Mexico. Each of the ticks on the horizontal axis represents 1 km; the vertical axis shows two-way travel time (as measured in seconds). The sea floor is at a depth of about 2500 feet below sea level, and the thickness of the sediment is approximately 9000 feet. What type of geophysical data is shown in this image?
Which of the following would be a useful geothermal energy resource?
