Thickness and Distribution of Quaternary and Neogene Sediment in Alberta, Canada

Author(s) Atkinson, N. Lyster, S. Date 2012-12-17

This map is a rendering of a computer-generated geostatistical model of the thickness and distribution of sediment overlying bedrock in Alberta using a newly revised bedrock topography model of the province (see Alberta Geological Survey Map 551).

This map updates Alberta Geological Survey Map 227, which is an earlier reconstruction of the sediment isopach map of Alberta.

The incompleteness of this map reflects the absence of sufficient data to interpret part of northern Alberta.
