Canadian Offshore Geotechnical Data
Entry ID: CANADA_GSC_OffshoreGeotechData


Summary
Abstract: Sediment core physical properties descriptions (down core) taken from samples
collected as part of research cruises conducted by, or for, the Geological
Survey of Canada (Atlantic). The data set contains basic (geotechnical)
physical properties of marine sediment core samples including water content,
bulk density, plasticity, and shear strength. Samples were analyzed on
longitudinal split cores using acoustic test techniques.This data is useful for
providing information on physical properties of unconsolidated sediments (down
core). The maximum length of down core measurements is 37 m. The data can be
used for determining geohazards, environmental parameters, benthic habitats,
surficial sediment stability, etc.
