Abstract:
The Eastern Cordillera NATMAP project re-maps the bedrock and Quaternary geology along the eastern edge of the Cordillera in southern Alberta. It is creating a new broad-ranging, digitial geoscience information base. Seismic information, made available to the project through the co-operative support of industry is coupled with existing well data and extends the study into the third dimension. The Southeastern Cordillera NATMAP is managed through the Geological Survey of Canada (Calgary), and is a joint research effort with the Alberta Geological Survey, the Geological Survey of Canada in Vancouver, and Canadian petroleum industry and academic researchers. Numerous maps, journal and peer review publications, poster presentations and theses have been published and presented. Please consult the following address for more details: http://www.nrcan.gc.ca/~dlebel/sanatmap/96prod1.htm . A CD-ROM on the surficial geology of the area is currently being assembled.To re-map the bedrock and Quaternary geology along the eastern edge of the Cordillera in southern Alberta and to create a new broad-ranging, digital geoscience information base.
