Tracking Mesozoic Paleoclimate Events on the Nova Scotia Margin: Integrating Biostratigraphic Legacy Data with New Stable Carbon Isotope Analyses (part of the PAGEO research program)

November 2020 – November 2021

This study will obtain empirical evidence for climatic perturbations and regional changes in oceanic circulation patterns by (1) acquiring an extensive dataset of stable isotope measurements from key wells located in the area of interest, (2) integrating these measurements with existing quantitat

Analysis of Palaeoenvironment, Palaeoclimate and Palaeooceanographic Models to Predict Distribution of Source Rocks Offshore Nova Scotia (part of the PAGEO research program)

November 2020 – June 2021

The objective of this work is to predict the distribution of Tithonian and early Jurassic (Toarcian, Pliensbachian, Sinemurian, Hettangian) source rocks based on biogeographic principles derived from modern environments, and palaeoenvironmental interpretations derived from palaeogeographic mappin

Sequence stratigraphy, titania diagenesis and relationship to petroleum systems modeling

October 2018 – January 2021

This project examines different forms of titania (TiO2) minerals to confirm the relationship between late diagenetic titania (i.e., titania minerals transformed under the heat and pressure of sedimentary processes) and hydrocarbon migration and thus assess the use of titania polymorphs as “pathfi

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

Using Radar to Evaluate Seabird Abundance and Habitat Use at the Fundy Ocean Research Center for Energy Site near Parrsboro, Nova Scotia

April – September 2018

Shore-based seabird surveys conducted at the Fundy Ocean Research Center for Energy (FORCE) in Parrsboro, NS, determine abundance, habitat use and potential risk to seabirds at the site.
