AbstractThe Labrador Sea, Davis Strait, and Baffin Bay offshore regions, collectively referred to as the Labrador-Baffin Seaway, and their onshore margins including Baffin Island, Bylot Island, and West Greenland, form a region with a complex geological history developed through successive tectonic events. This complex geological and tectonic history is described in detail in this volume, a collaborative undertaking under the Geological Survey of Canada's Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals 2 program (GEM-2), with contributions from external partners. Knowledge from pre-existing studies, essential contributions from collaborators, and GEM research results have been incorporated into the 14 papers contained in this volume, which summarize previous geological and geophysical knowledge and include novel insights from a regional perspective that serve as a guide for future research and exploration activities. The papers in the volume highlight both onshore and offshore studies in order to produce a comprehensive synopsis of the geological history of the region, with corresponding high-resolution reference maps and figures, and select GIS data sets. This compilation is divided into sections covering Precambrian and Paleozoic geology, Mesozoic to present geology, and resources within the region.
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.
