AbstractAs part of a reconnaissance sub-bottom acoustic profiling (SAP) survey, 34 profiles were collected at Sesekinika Lake, Ontario, on August 23, 2015. The quality of the returns ranges from good to there being no penetration locally. Three depositional facies are present within the SAP returns that represent lacustrine, glaciolacustrine and subaqueous mass transport deposits. The profiles collected from Sesekinika Lake demonstrate the presence of mass transport deposits within this basin.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This Open File is a release of sub-bottom profile data collected from Sesekinika Lake, northeastern Ontario. The profiles reveal lacustrine, glaciolacustrine and submarine landslide deposits preserved in the modern lake bed.
