Integration of microbiological and geochemical tools for de-risking oil and gas exploration along the Scotian Margin

This Mitacs project will enable two MSc students the opportunity to work with the Offshore Energy Research Association and their partners with the Nova Scotia Department of Energy to produce an ArcGIS product and seismic-based model of seep architecture for petroleum exploration of the offshore Nova Scotia margin. These projects will relate newly created genomic and lipidomic data that is expected to help de-risk offshore exploration efforts. The Interns will use these data to produce maps and 3D models of the seeps
