Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This open file presents a report on the activities for the Stratigraphic and Tectonic Framework for the Baffin Bay Petroleum Systems activity as part of the Baffin Bay Project under GEM 2. The goal of this activity is to understand the fundamental geologic and tectonic evolution of the sedimentary basins in the Baffin Bay region and the factors which control the petroleum potential of the area. This is done by mapping the structure and stratigraphy of the sedimentary basins underlying the seafloor to produce maps of sediment thickness and to discover the timing of the key geologic elements needed to produce a complete petroleum system: source rocks (organic content in shales), reservoir (sandstone distribution), seal (shale cap above reservoir) and migration pathways. In order to understand the stratigraphy in the frontier basins of Baffin Bay (where there is little geologic information) the nearby Labrador margin is studied as this margin evolved at the same time and through the same process as Baffin Bay, and provides us with a rich dataset of seismic and well data.
