Found 10 records similar to Bedrock Thalwegs of Peerless Lake Area, Alberta (NTS 84B) (GIS data, thalweg line features)

Provincial

The bedrock topography map of the Peerless Lake area (NTS 84B) shows the elevation of the bedrock surface. In general, the topography of the land surface reflects the bedrock topography. Thus, bedrock highs underlie the Buffalo Head Hills Upland, Peerless Lake Upland and Utikuma Uplands. Major buried valleys lie within the Loon River Lowland in the west-central part and within the Wabasca Lowlands in the south and northeast parts of the map area.

The drift thickness map of the Peerless Lake area (NTS 84B) shows the variation in thickness of unconsolidated sediment lying between the bedrock surface and the present-day land surface, and complements the Drift Thickness of Alberta map (Pawlowicz and Fenton, 1995). The thickness of the drift varies from locally less than 2 metres in Buffalo Head Hills to over 200 metres in the Loon River Lowland in the central part of the map area. Thick drift fills the major paleovalleys, which are the Muskwa Valley, the Red Earth Valley and Gods Valley. The drift is thinnest on the Peerless Lake Upland, the Utikuma Uplands and the Buffalo Head Hills Upland.

The data represent the locations of thalwegs (paleo-channels) incised in the bedrock surface. Segments of three major buried valleys are present: the Wiau Valley and the Leismer Valley in the northeast, and the south to northwest-trending Amesbury Valley in the central portion of the area.

This GIS dataset depicts the surficial geology of the NTS map area 84B (line features). The 1:250 000 scale dataset was compiled from four published 1:100 000 scale maps (AGS maps 265, 266, 267 and 267). The aggregated data was generalized by thinning out features where too dense to be represented clearly. The process was overseen by the mapping geologist.The data are created in ArcInfo format and output for public distribution in Arc export (E00) and shapefile formats.

The bedrock topography map of the Pelican River area (NTS 83P) shows the elevation of the bedrock surface. In general, the surface topography reflects the bedrock topography: bedrock highs underlie the Pelican, Amadou and May Hills highlands, and the buried valleys lie within the Wabasca and Wandering River plains. The elevation of the bedrock surface ranges from 360 metres above sea level (masl) in the Wabasca Plain to slightly more than 920 masl in the Pelican Mountains. Segments of three major buried valleys are present: the Wiau Valley and the Leismer Valley in the northeast, and the south to northwest-trending Amesbury Valley in the central portion of the area.

The drift thickness map of the Pelican River area (NTS 83P) shows the variation in thickness of unconsolidated sediment lying between the bedrock surface and the present-day land surface, and complements the regional drift thickness map of Alberta (Pawlowicz and Fenton, 1995). The thickness of the drift varies from less than 20 metres in uplands, such as the Pelican Mountains, to a little over 260 metres in the Wiau Valley in the northeast part of the map area. The thickest drift fills the paleovalleys containing the major valleys: the Wiau Valley and the Leismer Valley in the northeast, and the north-trending Amesbury Valley in the central portion of the area.
