Pacific Continental Margin

CIM Bulletin, 1970

Solid-Earth Sciences in Canada

THE PACIFIC CONTINENTAL MARGIN OF CANADA is defined , for the purposes of this paper, as the area seaward from the present mainland coast of British Columbia to the foot of the continental slope. It thus coincides with A. Sutherland Brown's Insular Tectonic Belt. The region is limited to the north and south by the political boundary with the U.S.A., the location of which is still in dispute.
