Thickness of Quaternary and Neogene Sediments in the Edmonton-Calgary Corridor (GIS data, ASCII grid format)

Author(s) Lyster, S. Barker, A.A. Date 2012-01-09

This GIS dataset depicts the drift thickness in the Edmonton-Calgary corridor based on water-well litholog data and bedrock outcrop locations. We used well data from an internal Edmonton-Calgary corridor geological mapping database.

This thickness map was generated to assist in building a geological model for the region. The sediment thickness was generated by subtracting the bedrock topography surface from the 60 m Shuttle Radar Topography Mission v. 2 digital elevation model.
