Geoscape Edmonton

Our river valley, once a transportation corridor and source of mineral riches, is now spectacular parkland. The valley also is a window into Edmonton�s geological landscape or geoscape. In our geoscape, we see geological forces carving the valley and creating resources and hazards, geological layers opened like the pages of a book for reading and a long and remarkable history. Geology helps us see and study this past and learn to control our future.

The poster contains information on geological time, regional resources, geohazards, the river valley, river valley geology, valley resources, glacial geology and groundwater.
