Glacial Limits - 1M

Glacial Limits - 1M The Yukon Territory is underlain by a great variety of rock types ranging in age from Early Proterozoic to Recent and representing diverse environments including epicratonic basins, subsiding shelves, foreland basins, island arcs and deep ocean basins. Episodes of compressional and extensional deformation, transcurrent faulting, metamorphism and plutonism further complicate the map pattern. This complex geological record has been described in terms of the interactions of several terranes (large parts of the earth's crust which preserve a common geological record) with each other and with the margin of ancestral North America. 2022-03-29 Government of Yukon geomatics.help@gov.yk.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyCanadaYukon TerritoryYukongeologyearth sciencesurficial geologyglacial limitsDownloadable DataGovernment information ISO 19139 Geographic Information - MetadataHTML https://geoweb.gov.yk.ca/geoportal/catalog/search/resource/details.page?uuid=%7BE92ECF24-26D5-464D-9387-B3D1833CE8AF%7D Original metadata (https://open.yukon.ca)HTML https://open.yukon.ca/data/datasets/glacial-limits-1m ISO 19139 Geographic Information - MetadataXML https://geoweb.gov.yk.ca/geoportal/rest/document?id=%7BE92ECF24-26D5-464D-9387-B3D1833CE8AF%7D FTP Directoryother https://map-data.service.yukon.ca/GeoYukon/Geological/Glacial_Limits_1M/
