Davis Illustrated. pp. Liveright Publishing. $ For those who live distant from it, the Gulf of Mexico made its most vivid appearance on. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) recently conducted an assessment of the undiscovered, technically recoverable oil and gas potential of Tertiary strata underlying the onshore areas and State waters of the northern Gulf of Mexico coastal region.

    The Gulf of Mexico (Spanish: Golfo de México) is an ocean basin and a marginal sea of the Atlantic Ocean, largely surrounded by the North American continent. It is bounded on the northeast, north and northwest by the Gulf Coast of the United States, on the southwest and south by Mexico, and on the southeast by US states of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida border Basin countries: United States, Mexico, Cuba. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) started a program in April to map the deep‐water (greater than m) areas of the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) at a reconnaissance scale as a first effort to develop a geologic understanding of the new national offshore by: 5.
