    Bedrock Geological Units, Groundwater Geoscience Program

    The bedrock geologic units designate units of the same types of rock which composed the solid rock exposed at ground surface (as outcrop) or which underlies unconsolidated surficial sediments. This dataset represents a general description of the stratigraphy and geology, including geologic unit...

    Key aquifers of Canada

    This map represents the key aquifers in Canada, as defined by the Groundwater Mapping Program of the Geological Survey of Canada. This map illustrates the delineation of known aquifers and aquifers that were studied in the course of the groundwater program, the groundwater potential of the...

    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...

    Regional, lithological and temporal variation in the abundances of some trace...

    Samples of rocks during reconnaissance geological mapping by Geological Survey of Canada field parties have been used to estimate the average abundance of some trace elements in the surface crystalline rocks of the Canadian Shield. The preferred values are as follows, in ppm: Ni, 19; Cu, 26; Zn,...

    Canadian Database of Geochemical Surveys

    The "Canadian Database of Geochemical Surveys" has two long-term goals. Firstly, it aims to catalogue all of the regional geochemical surveys that have been carried out across Canada, beginning in the 1950s. Secondly, it aims to make the raw data from those surveys available in a standardised...

    Groundwater Composition, Groundwater Geoscience Program

    Water composition is defined by measuring the amounts of its various constituents; these are often expressed as milligrams of substance per litre of water (mg/L). Sampling methods vary according to the types of analysis. Dataset point: The dataset represents a general description of the sample,...

    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...
