Geological Survey of Canada-Calgary, Earth Sciences Sector, Natural Resources Canada

Data Center Description
The Geological Survey of Canada (Calgary) is a division of the
Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) and was established in 1967 in
response to an increasing demand by government and industry for
geological information about the energy-rich regions of western
and northern Canada. We have become an important source of
information and expertise on the geology, geochemistry,
geophysics and resource potential of the sedimentary basins in
western and northern Canada, which contain most of Canada?s
known oil, natural gas and coal resources, as well as important
deposits of minerals. We are also the Geological Survey of
Canada's national centre for research in paleontology, coal and
organic geochemistry.
