Other Oil & Gas-Related Expertise

Dr. Brendan Murphy, Professor of Geology, has defined the stratigraphy, and characterized and interpreted the structure and tectonic evolution of the St. Mary's Basin and adjacent areas in Nova Scotia. His expertise is valuable to onshore exploration companies in the understanding of seismic data obtained for on-shore petroleum exploration.

The laboratory of Dr. Edwin DeMont studies the locomotion of lobster and snow crab, including both larval swimming and walking in adults. This research is of relevance to understanding the behaviour of lobsters around exposed gas pipeline in the off-shore industry.
