This work integrates satellite image spectral analyses with rock magnetic and geochemical data (i.e., mass-specific magnetic susceptibility χ, saturation isothermal remanent magnetization SIRM, analysis of SIRM acquisition curves, absorption spectro-radiometry, and X-ray diffraction analyses). The target area was an oil-prospective region in northwestern Venezuela (Falcon Basin) swarmed by hydrocarbon seeps. The study's main goal was to depict the spatial extension and vertical reach of the hydrocarbon-mediated alteration produced by these seeps and gain some knowledge about the processes involved in the subsequent mineral changes.
The dataset is composed of spreadsheets, compressing field samples data including their locations. Also, a database is presented with data from profiles extracted from the results of multispectral image processing and laboratory data of rock magnetism.
