Nine hundred and thirty-three lakes located in Saskatchewan, Alberta and the Northwest Territories were sampled to establish current acidification status. Of the 933 lakes, 244 (or 26%) are considered acid sensitive, almost always because of naturally low calcium and magnesium (or "base cation") concentrations. The most acid-sensitive lakes (i.e., those with extremely low base cation concentrations) are located on the Canadian Shield in both Alberta and Saskatchewan and east of the oils sands development area. Fifty-one of the 244 acid-sensitive lakes were sampled twice annually (spring and fall) to identify chemical changes through trend analyses.
Contained within the 4th Edition (1974) of the Atlas of Canada is a set of four maps. The first map shows the value, by census division, of forest product farms for 1960 to 1961. The second map shows the value, by census division, for Prairie Farm Assistance Act payments, Government acreage payments, crop insurance and other similar farm receipts. The third map shows, by census division, the market value for 1961 of lands and buildings being used for agricultural purposes.
Forest fires are an important part of the Canadian landscape. The number of fires and area burned can vary dramatically from year to year, but there are more than 8000 reported wildfires in Canada during a typical year, burning an average of 2.5 million hectares or 25 000 square kilometres. Only 3 percent of fires in Canada reach a final size greater than 200 hectares, but these fires are responsible for 97 percent of the total area burned. This map shows the forest fire ignition causes for fires greater than 200 hectares.
Contained within the Atlas of Canada's Reference Map Series, 1961 to 2010, is a map of British Columbia. The map shows federal, provincial and territorial boundaries, boundaries of land districts, and boundaries for places of more than 50 000 inhabitants. The transportation content consists of roads (shown in four classes), ferries, and railways. Populated places are shown in one of five size classes.
100 year peak flow isolines in cubic metres per second (m3/s) for 100 square kilometre watersheds and 100 year return period
Percentage provincially, territorially, regionally and municipally owned social and affordable housing assets for all provinces and territories.
Electromagnetic Survey of the Livingstone Creek area, Yukon, Parts of NTS 105-E/7, 8, 9 and 10
This map of the first vertical derivative of the magnetic field was derived from data acquired during an aeromagnetic survey carried out by EON Geosciences Inc. in the period between April 10, 2009 and September 16, 2009. The data were recorded using split-beam cesium vapour magnetometers (sensitivity = 0.005 nT) mounted in each of the tail booms of a Piper Navajo and a Cessna 206 aircraft. The nominal traverse and control line spacings were, respectively, 800 m and 2 400 m, and the aircraft flew at a nominal terrain clearance of 250 m. Traverse lines were oriented N90?E with orthogonal control lines. The flight path was recovered following post-flight differential corrections to the raw Global Positioning System data and inspection of ground images recorded by a vertically-mounted video camera.
