 An understanding of crustal thickness, ocean-continent-transition structure, the distribution of oceanic lithosphere and kinematic evolution is a critical component of petroleum systems evaluation in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) and elsewhere. Using public-domain data and OCTek 3D gravity inversion, we have produced regional grids and maps of Moho depth, crustal-basement thickness, continental-lithosphere thinning-factor and residual continental-crustal-thickness for the GoM. Crustal-basement thickness and lithosphere thinning from the 3D gravity inversion show the distribution of oceanic crust within the GoM and constrain continent-ocean-boundary location. An understanding of crustal thickness, ocean-continent-transition structure, the distribution of oceanic lithosphere and kinematic evolution is a critical component of petroleum systems evaluation in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) and elsewhere.
