AbstractMarine renewable energy (tide, wave and offshore wind) is available in large quantities for integration into the Canadian energy mix. Seabed site characterization is a critical part of the engineering design process required to install turbines as well as to understand environmental impacts. This report summarizes the range of geological and geophysical information that is required for characterizing the seabed at a marine renewable energy site.
