AbstractThis compilation is a GIS-ready data set of a compilation of the surficial geology of the Scotian Shelf from Georges Bank to the Laurentian Channel. The data set defines the boundaries of surficial geology map units (formations) of Quaternary age. It was digitized from previously published paper maps of the Geological Survey of Canada. Accompanying the original paper maps were scientific reports that described mapping methods, control, detailed descriptions of the map units, applications and references relating to a systematic regional mapping program that was conducted by the GSC over a period of approximately 20 years. Five surficial sediment units (formations) were mapped and a chronology of geological history was proposed. The most important contribution of these maps to an understanding of the geology of the continental shelf is their portrayal of sediment type, classification and distribution in a conceptual formational model framework.
