Sylvan Lake Sub-Basin Hydrostratigraphic Model - Net-to-Gross Sandstone Distribution for the Paskapoo Formation - Middle Composite Slice, Central Alberta (Gridded data, ASCII format)

Author(s) Atkinson, L.A. Glombick, P.M. Date 2015-08-06

This grid dataset is part of the three-dimensional (3-D) hydrostratigraphic model of the Sylvan Lake sub-basin in the Edmonton-Calgary Corridor, central Alberta. It represents the net-to-gross sandstone ratio distribution within the Paskapoo Formation - Middle Composite Slice of the Sylvan Lake sub-basin. The Middle Composite Slice is one of three distinct geological domains identified in the Paskapoo Formation of the Sylvan Lake sub-basin model.

Characterization of net-to-gross sandstone ratio distribution within the Paskapoo Formation provides information about the geological heterogeneity and potential hydraulic connectivity within the formation for input into a groundwater flow model.

Alberta Geological Survey (AGS) Open File Report 2014-10 includes a full description of the process used to produce the net-to-gross sandstone ratio grid.
