Abstract(Summary)
The "Baffin Island and the Labrador-Baffin Seaway Geological Synthesis," is an ongoing activity under the GEM-2 Baffin Project that initiated in 2016. The activity aims to summarize existing and new geological data resulting from previous and current GEM Baffin studies and related research (Fig. 1). The Synthesis will combine onshore and offshore studies in order to produce a comprehensive synopsis of the geology and tectonic history of both Baffin Island and the Labrador-Baffin Seaway. The Baffin Geological Synthesis will be published as a Geological Survey of Canada Bulletin - Compendium, and will be publically available online. The compilation will be subdivided into chapters that will provide geological summaries, as well as high resolution reference maps and figures. Additional details and larger maps, along with raw data files, will be included in the appendices and available for download by the public.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Baffin Geological Synthesis, titled "Baffin Island and the Labrador-Baffin Seaway Geological Synthesis," initiated in 2016 and is an ongoing activity under the GEM-2 Baffin Project. The activity will summarize existing and new geological data produced from previous and ongoing GEM Baffin studies and related research (Fig. 1). The Synthesis will be published as a Geological Survey of Canada Bulletin - Compendium, and will be publically available online. The Baffin Geological Synthesis is subdivided into three parts each containing chapters that will provide geological summaries, as well as high resolution reference maps and figures. Additional details and larger maps, along with raw data files, will also be included in the appendices and available for download by the public.
