Abstract:
This is a collection of biostratigraphic analysis data sets for basins that are offshore eastern Canada. It consists of microfossil and palynological biostratigraphic assemblage information which has been distilled into several hundred charts and reports. Some of this collection is part of the BASIN database, which contains a wealth of geological, geophysical and engineering information related to many years of petroleum exploration, primarily offshore eastern Canada, while the remainder is part of a customized program (GEOSCI BIOSTRAT). The BASIN portion covers the period to about 1990 and GEOSCI BIOSTRAT mainly stores more recent data.This data set uses microfossil assemblages in offshore well samples to assist with decision making for offshore oil and gas exploration. These data are also used in research and to help increase scientific knowledge of offshore sedimentary basins.
