Although exploration activity on the continental shelf has progressed beyond the frontier stage, comparatively little is known about the geology beneath the continental slope. Of the exploratory wells in the Scotian Basin, only 11 are in water depths greater than meters. More details on the surficial sediments of the eastern Scotian Shelf and Slope can be found in publications of the Geological Survey of Canada (e.g., King.
