    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...

    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 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,...

    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...

    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...

    Aquifer Vulnerability, Groundwater Geoscience Program

    A measure of the intrinsic susceptibility of an aquifer representing the tendency or likelihood for contaminants to reach a specified position in the groundwater system after introduction at some location above the uppermost aquifer. The method used to create the dataset is described in the...

    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...
