Expedition Database (ED)
The Expedition Database (ED) contains information (metadata) and data related to marine and coastal
field surveys conducted by or on behalf of the Geological Survey of Canada (Atlantic and Pacific). ED
is a source of information on "Stations" where geological samples such as piston cores, grab samples, bottom photography
were collected. Resulting data such as grainsize, radiocarbon dates, and bottom photography can also be accessed through
ED. In addition, ED is a source of trackline navigation for marine geophysical (seismic, sidescan, multibeam) profiles
collected by the GSC.
This information may be retrieved by Expedition Code (assigned cruise number), by station or seismic parameter type, or by geographic bounding box coordinates or place keyword.
You can view detailed information on the screen or download a CSV text file (for spreadsheet or import into a GIS e.g. ArcGIS).
