River Sources & Sand Transfer to the Deepwater Lower Cretaceous Scotian Basin

This project aims to define the distribution systems for sand and help industry explorers refine their exploration targets and better understand the quality of underground petroleum reservoirs. The project addresses key questions in resolving the issue of how much sand has been transferred from the Cretaceous deltas to deepwater.
