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.
