Abstract:
Alaska is a complex amalgamation of tectonic blocks with diverse histories. Sedimentary basins that are formed on these blocks both before amalgamation and as a result of collisions between them record the tectonic history of this complex region. Thermal-maturity data-indicators of maximum burial temperatures-provide important constraints both on basin evolution and on terrane amalgamation. To help elucidate these relations, and to provide constraints for hydrocarbon assessments, the U.S. Geological survey (USGS) has compilied thermal-maturity data from Alaska for many decades. This report is a digital release of our current understanding of thermal-maturity patters in Alaska.
Purpose:
The files in this directory are those that were used to create the Generalized Thermal Maturity Map of Alaska (USGS Miscellaneous Investigations Map I-2494), published in 1996. These files are necessary for importing the map in digital form into a Geographical Information System. Output files in several formats also are included in this directory; these can be used any time a digital version of the complete map is needed.
The map is based, in large part, on the vitrinite-reflectance (VR) and conodont color-alteration-index (CAI) data in USGS Open-File Report 92-409, an updated version of which also is included on this CD-ROM.
Supplemental_Information:
The 10 ARC/INFO coverages used to construct the map, together with the directory "INFO" (needed by ARC/INFO to support the coverages), are found in the "coverages" subdirectory. These coverages can be used by any GIS capable of importing files in ARC/INFO format.
Export version of these coverages are found in the subdirectory "exportfiles." These files can be imported into ARC/INFO with the "import" command.
Shapefile versions of 9 of the ARC/INFO coverages are found in the subdirectory "shapefiles." Each shapefile actually consists of three files, with extensions .shp, .shx., and .dbf; all are needed for importation into a GIS supporting the shapefile format.
Inset figures and text, as well as the map title, headers, and latitude-longitude ticks, were created as a separate file. This file is available in Adobe Illustrator 6.0 format (insets.ill) and in Encapsulated PostScript format (insets.eps) in the subdirectory "insetfigures."
The subdirectory "miscfiles" contains many important files needed to use these coverages in ARC/INFO or another GIS.

Source_Contribution:
The "data" directory contains vitrinite reflectance (VR) and conodont color-alteration-index (CAI) data in three formats: a Microsoft Excel (version 5.0) workbook, a set of four ASCII files; and a set of four files in Adobe's PDF format, also accessible through the PDF interface described above. The Excel workbook contains four spreadsheets: one each for VR data from outcrops, VR data from wells, conodont CAI data from outcrops, and conodont color alteration index data from wells. These spreadsheets are neatly formatted and will generally be easier to work with than the ASCII or PDF files, but they do require that the user own a copy of the Microsoft Excel application. The ASCII files are tab-delineated, with the first two records consisting of a title and field labels, respectively. Manipulation of the ASCII files requires a database-management, spreadsheet, or word-processing program capable of reading ASCII files.
