  • 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...

  • Groundwater Level, 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 depth is measured on the field, using a water level meters. The depth is then subtracted from the elevation of the measurement site to...

  • 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 Usage, Groundwater Geoscience Program

    The amount of groundwater exploited is estimated in m³/year. Groundwater usages are classified in four categories: agricultural, industrial, domestic and energy. Typically, groundwater usage should be represented as a series of sub-polygons or points fitting inside the boundary of the...

  • Hydraulic Properties, Groundwater Geoscience Program

    Hydraulic properties characterize a hydrogeological unit. The hydraulic properties considered for this dataset are the transmissivity, the hydraulic conductivity, the storage coefficient, the specific storage coefficient and the porosity. Hydraulic properties are estimated by performing aquifer...

  • Groundwater Level, Time Series, 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 depth is measured on set intervals on the field, using a levelogger. The depth is then subtracted from the measurement site elevation to...

  • Surficial Geology

    The surficial geology map collection consists of individually published surficial geology maps across Canada that have been released in the Canadian Geoscience Map Series format. Each map was created with a specific extent or scale which may result in data superimposition. These maps share a...
