Natural oil seeps on the Baffin Shelf, Nunavut, Canada: M41-11/12-2012E-PDF

geology and geochemistry of the Scott Inlet seep /

"Oil slicks were first recorded on the sea surface offshore Scott Inlet, Baffin Island, in 1976 by a scientific team from the Geological Survey of Canada (Loncarevic and Falconer, 1977). Several detailed studies were undertaken over the following 10 years to examine the petroleum residues in the surface slick, water column, and surficial bottom sediments, and to map the geology of the area (Levy, 1978, 1979a, b; MacLean, 1978; MacLean and Falconer, 1979; Levy and MacLean, 1981). A comprehensive review of investigations was published by MacLean et al. (1981)"-Introduction.
