Abstract

A multichannel seismic reflection profile (US Geological Survey line 19), calibrated with the COST G-1, COST G-2, and Shell Mohican I-100 wells, and seismic-sequence analysis shows that the chronostratigraphic and lithostratigraphic units and depositional history of the Georges Bank basin are similar to those of the Scotian basin. Tentative correlation between the Georges Bank basin sequences and those of the adjacent, deep N American basin suggests that the deep-sea facies were strongly influenced by depositional events on the shelf. Deposition in both areas has been sensitive to changes in sea level and the palaeoclimatic cycles.-Author
