Interested in sponsoring the CBTH Project?

Our sponsors enjoy access to:

  • the complete CBTH GIS Database, Phases I-V for use with ESRI's ArcGIS
  • Access to the CBTH Sponsors Website, which allows direct download of CBTH data, documents, presentations, and more.
  • Access to Geopost, a web mapping application developed for CBTH Sponsors that allows all CBTH GIS data to be mapped, viewed, and downloaded easily in minutes through your web browser.
  • movies produced from Fledermaus
  • poster presentations from AGU, AAPG EAGE and other conferences authored by CBTH students and scientists
  • CBTH student participants' theses and dissertations
  • SEG-Y data converted from scans of vintage seismic datasets
  • Preprints of papers and internal reports

If you would like to become a sponsor or receive information about becoming a sponsor of the CBTH Project, please e-mail us at, or contact our research staff using the e-mail addresses provided under "Project Researchers." Thanks!

The CBTH proposed study area for Phase V is shown below. This area includes the oil-rich areas of the Mexican and US sectors of the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean, and northern South America, as well as the equatorial, conjugate margins of Guyana, Suriname, French Guyana, Brazil along with countries in western and eastern Africa.
