Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The objective of this report is to compile available high-resolution geoscience data and detailed surficial geology maps within each of the Network Candidate Sites identified by DFO as part of the Marine Geoscience for Marine Spatial Planning (MGMSP) program and determine whether the data meet the minimum requirement to enable a geologically viable study of the seafloor conditions. High-resolution geoscience data are needed to underpin spatial management analyses and support on-going conservation efforts in the Scotian Shelf Bioregion. This compilation highlights knowledge gaps and therefore provides a tool to determine priorities for future geoscience data acquisition within the MGMSP program.
