Nova Scotia-Morocco Conjugate Biostratigraphy Project

September 2018 – June 2019

Biostratigraphy, the study of fossils to determine the age and depositional conditions of the sediments from which they are recovered, is a critical input to the seismic reconstruction of the Nova Scotia and Morocco margins.  Detailed biostratigraphical analyses have been completed by an internat
