Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This study analyzes all available sub-bottom profiler data in order to generate a map of the distribution of seabed types and morphological features (i.e. debris flows, hydrocarbon related features) to be used as a tool to better understand the geology of Baffin Bay. A large portion of the seabed off Lancaster Sound is dominated by stacked debris flows. Other debris flows were observed on the continental slope off Clyde River, Nunavut, with two other localized locations on the Greenland margin. There is evidence of shallow hydrocarbons in the form of acoustic wipe outs and diapirs observed in the data in the Cape Dyer area.
