AbstractThe papers contained in this bulletin provide a comprehensive summary and updated understanding of the onshore geology and evolution of Baffin Island, the Labrador-Baffin Seaway, and surrounding onshore regions. This introductory paper summarizes and links the geological and tectonic events that took place to develop the craton and subsequent Proterozoic to Cenozoic sedimentary basins. Specifically, the Precambrian and Paleozoic geology of Baffin Island and localized occurrences underlying the adjacent Labrador-Baffin Seaway, the Mesozoic to Cenozoic stratigraphy and rift history that records the opening and evolution of the Labrador-Baffin Seaway, the seismicity of the region, as well as both the mineral (Baffin Island) and hydrocarbon (onshore and offshore) resource potential are discussed.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Knowledge of the bedrock geology and tectonic history of Canada's North, specifically modern map coverage of onshore Baffin Island and offshore stratigraphy and structure of the Labrador-Baffin Seaway, has significantly improved since the commencement of the Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM) Program in 2008. The Baffin Geological Synthesis provides a digital, publically available, comprehensive document that summarizes the geological and tectonic understanding of Baffin Island and the Labrador-Baffin Seaway that has been developed through GEM and its collaborators over the last decade. The volume is divided into three sections with a total of 14 papers: Part 1 - Precambrian and Paleozoic; Part 2 - Mesozoic to Present; and Part 3 - Land Use.
