Found 10 records similar to Drift Thickness of Peerless Lake Area, Alberta (NTS 84B) (GIS data, line features)
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.
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.
This GIS dataset depicts the drift thickness of NTS map area 84M ( line features). The data are created in ArcGIS and output for public distribution in shapefile formats.
This GIS dataset depicts the drift thickness of NTS map area 84L ( line features). The data are created in ArcInfo format and output for public distribution in Arc export (E00) and shapefile formats.
This GIS dataset depicts the drift thickness in the Edmonton-Calgary corridor based on water-well litholog data and bedrock outcrop locations. We used well data from an internal Edmonton-Calgary corridor geological mapping database. This thickness map was generated to assist in building a geological model for the region. The sediment thickness was generated by subtracting the bedrock topography surface from the 60 m Shuttle Radar Topography Mission v. 2 digital elevation model.
This dataset is a GIS version of part of Map 227, which is a regional synthesis of various published and unpublished maps. The data represent drift isopachs for Alberta. The southern part of Alberta, from 49 to 56 degrees north, was primarily compiled from existing 1:250,000 bedrock topography maps. The interpretation of the remaining northern portion of the province was based mostly on limited borehole data and information from existing 1:250,000 hydrogeological maps.
This dataset is a shapefile depicting the suitability of geological setting in Alberta for waste management siting. It is derived from spatial analysis of other geological input, including: bedrock topography and morphology. occurrence of major buried drift aquifers, assumed on the basis of buried channel talwegs locations. surficial geology.
The data represent the locations of thalwegs (paleo-channels) incised in the bedrock surface. Segments of three major buried valleys are present: the Muskwa Valley, the Red Earth Valley and Gods Valley in the northeastern portion of the area.
Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows the locations of glacial materials, circa mid-1950s. The extents of existing glaciers and ice caps are shown. The direction of ice movement is illustrated by denoting the trends of drumlins (elongated or oval hills of glacial drift), drumlinoid ridges, flutings, glacial striae, grooves and roche-moutonee (rounded glacially shaped rock) as well as the direction of valley glacier movements. Areas of extinct glacial lakes are shown with glacial spillways which are outlets of these extinct glacial lakes.
This data set contains a summary of the potential sediment transport by wind for 32 locations in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta along with two stations in the Northwest Territories. A summary figure, referred to as a sand rose, indicates the resultant capacity of wind to transport loose sand-sized particles for each location as follows: * RDD (Resultant Drift Direction): expresses the net directional trend of sand drift. This is depicted as a red arrow. * DP (Drift Potential): a measure of the energy of surface winds in terms of sand movement.
