Geology of the Continental Margin of Eastern Canada

Editors: M.J. Keen and G.L. Williams

Focusing almost exclusively on marine information, this volume includes chapters on regional geology, geophysics, and biostratigraphy. Also included are extensive sections on margin evolution, Quaternary marine geology, modern sedimentary processes, and a review of the history of exploration. Seventeen large color plates show bathymetry, well locations, depth-to-basement, paleofacies of 7 Mesozoic and Cenozoic time slices, gravity, magnetics, stress, and tectonics. They also show several aspects of Quaternary geology, provide a correlation chart for Phanerozoic formations encountered in boreholes, and include some seismic profiles and interpretations. Together with Decade of North American Geology (DNAG) volumes GNA-I2 (The Atlantic Continental Margin: U.S.) and GNA-M (The Western North Atlantic Region ), this volume completes a trilogy on the maritime geology of the North Atlantic and its North American margin. Published as part of the DNAG Geology of North America (GNA) series.
