Abstract : This technical memorandum provides a general description of the geo-acoustics and oceanography of the Scotian Shelf. Detailed descriptions are provided for three sites on the Scotian Shelf where the environment can be characterized on the basis of existing geophysical and oceanographic data.These sites will serve as archetypes for much broader regions of the Scotian Shelf with similar geo-acoustic settings.
