Surficial hydrogeological materials show the distribution of sediment deposited in glacially influenced environments. Most drinkable groundwater resources in Canada occur in shallow surficial-sediment aquifers. Surface sediments, such as gravel, sand, silt and clay, or mixed sediments, are an important control on vegetation patterns and surface-water recharge to aquifers. In addition, areas with significant thicknesses of sand and gravel-large moraines and buried valleys-often host prolific aquifers.

Contained within the 4th Edition (1974) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows the general make up of surface materials. Along with the map is a list of terrain classifications denoted as bedrock, unconsolidated material (glacial deposits, boulders, alluvium, gravels, sands, silts, clays, weathered residual deposits, soils, organic terrain), bedrock outcrops, unconsolidated material and glacier ice.

Most unconsolidated materials covering the Canadian landmass have glacial origins. Some sediments were entrained by glaciers and deposited at a distance without being sorted. Other sediments were picked up and reworked by glacial melt water, or transported and deposited by river or wind action. Some sediments are organic or volcanic in origin.

This GIS dataset is a Yukon-wide compilation of surficial geology lines derived from 75 published and unpublished 1:50,000 surficial geology maps produced by the GSC, Yukon Geological Survey and various universities. Surficial geology line features captured in this compilation include: surficial geological contacts; glacial limits; glacial landforms such as cirques, aretes, eskers, meltwater channels and moraines; and non-glacial landforms such as faults, lineaments, landslides, and escarpments.

Contained within the 4th Edition (1974) of the Atlas of Canada is a set of two maps. One shows the maximum post-glacial marine limit in feet above present sea level and the second shows the maximum height of post-glacial rebound in feet above present sea level. Both maps show existing glaciers and are accompanied by a detailed text providing background information on the post-glacial marine limit, post-glacial rebound and the production of these two maps.
