We will be using ZOOM (with the enhanced security) for this presentation, with the Meeting ID & password that will be sent out to members the day before the lecture.

If you haven't used Zoom it only takes a minute to download.

Moderator will be on line 15 min. before the talk, so join us & catch up; it is AGS remember!

Please don't post logon details anywhere public, but you can share with others you think might be interested.

Just as a reminder, ZOOM is very easy to use.. turning your video & (or) your audio on & off is an option, & if you have bandwidth issues, turning your projected video "off" can help. During presentations please mute your audio; Moderator may be able to do that, but just in remove background noise. For questions you can use the chat to queue up " then unmute yourself when I ask you to go ahead; this just tries to reduce background noise. Afterwards, we will just open it up to further discussion as the system is voice activated.

Looking forward to seeing those that can make it on ZOOM.

AGS Webinar 10 - "Where Geology Meets Jurisprudence: Canada’s extended continental shelf mapping in the Atlantic"

Presented by David Cole Mosher (NRCan)
Thursday August 13th, 1:30pm NDT (1:00pm ADT)

Abstract - Article 76 of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) prescribes the methodologies with which a coastal State may define the outer maritime limits of its extended continental shelf beyond 200 nautical miles. This prescription includes significant geologic criteria and requires scientific evidence to be provided to substantiate the State’s position. This presentation will explain some of these criteria and demonstrate its application with Canada’s case in the Atlantic. This case resulted in a submission that includes 1.2 million square km over which Canada would have sovereign jurisdiction over the natural resources on and under the seafloor beyond its present exclusive economic zone. In fact, Canada may well be the first country to have commercial development within its extended continental shelf, offshore of Newfoundland.
