AbstractGreat Lakes legacy geoscience data have been recovered and processed for inclusion in the Geological Survey of Canada's Expedition Database. Interpretation of seismic reflection data from Lakes Ontario and Huron reveals sediment thickness and depth to bedrock; these measurements contribute to the surficial framework geology within the Canada-3D project and southern Ontario 3-D geological modelling. In addition, seismostratigraphic analysis of the legacy data reveals the sediment deposition history and contributes to understanding the evolution of these two Great Lakes.
