  • Bedrock hydrogeology

    The map shows the location and distribution of bedrock aquifers. The quality is expressed by the total dissolved solids in parts per million and the quantity is expressed in litre per second. Bedrock deposits consist of sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rocks; Canada possesses all three...

  • Surficial hydrogeology

    The map shows the quantity and quality of groundwater. The quality is the total dissolved solids in parts per million. The quantity is expressed in litres per second. During the Pleistocene epoch Canada was almost entirely covered by glaciers. Hence, although there are extensive and...

  • Surficial Hydrogeological Materials

    Surficial hydrogeological materials show the distribution of sediment deposited in glacially influenced environments. Most drinkable groundwater resources in Canada occur in shallow surficial-sediment aquifers. Surface sediments, such as gravel, sand, silt and clay, or mixed sediments, are an...

  • Groundwater observation wells

    The map shows the location of the six hydrogeological regions in Canada and the location of observation wells. The terrain composition is also shown on the map, which includes crystalline rocks, mixed crystalline rocks, folded sedimentary rocks and flat lying sedimentary rocks. The southern limit...

  • Groundwater Flow, Groundwater Geoscience Program

    Groundwater flow is the movement of water in an aquifer or hydrogeological unit. The dataset shows groundwater flow rate and direction in the hydrogeological unit. Groundwater flow is establish from piezometric surface map. The method used to create the dataset is described in the metadata...

  • Groundwater Samples, Groundwater Geoscience Program

    Groundwater samples have been collected in the hydrogeological unit, for various types of analysis. The dataset is not used to represent a particular phenomenon or observation but rather as a utility dataset to add context and reference to groundwater analysis. It represents a general description...

  • Piezometric Surface, Groundwater Geoscience Program

    Level below which soil or rock is saturated with water, in the well and at the time the level has been measured, expressed in m above the sea level. Groundwater levels measured are interpolated / extrapolated to obtain groundwater level on every cell of the hydrogeological unit raster. Surfer and...
