Abstract:The Bay St. George subbasin is a geologically complex onshore-to-offshore basin that has undergone significant deformation during Appalachian orogenesis. High resolution geophysical data including seismic and potential field data were used to characterize the structure and stratigraphy of the basin. Significant subsurface compartmentalization reaching crustal depths were revealed as well as juxtaposed lower crustal blocks caused by regional faults. Based on the timing and structural characteristics of these regional faults, the Bay St. George subbasin had a history involving both transtension and transpression.
