The Canadian geoscience community, including the GSC, has long collected and archived geoscience materials in support of basic research.
Much of these materials are accessible to the public for further research upon request.
This dataset is a record inventory management system for the archiving of geological and geophysical data (e.g. seismics, multibeam, bathymetry, gravity, magnetics and seabed videos) as part of the holdings at the Geological Survey of Canada (Atlantic) in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, as well as the Pacific Geoscience Centre, BC. The archive includes logbooks, magnetic/reel-to-reel/digital tapes, paper records, analog data, videos, microfilm, microfiche and photographs collected as part of research cruises by, or for, the Geological Survey of Canada (Atlantic).
This data set also encompasses information about the curation of all geological sample material as part of a sample inventory management system for the physical holdings archived at the Geological Survey of Canada (Atlantic) in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. The archive includes cores (both refrigerated and ambient), grabs, and other types of samples collected as part of research cruises by, or for, the Geological Survey of Canada (Atlantic).
This dataset is maintained for purposes of curation and the ability to access (for geoscientific research) samples and geophysical data archived at the Geological Survey of Canada (Atlantic) in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
