AbstractPreliminary surficial geology studies, based on air photo interpretation and limited legacy and recent field data, were undertaken in the north half of the Deep Rose Lake map area to provide an understanding of the distribution and nature of surficial materials, and regional glacial history.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The map identifies surficial materials and associated landforms left by the retreat of the last glaciers. The surficial geology is based on aerial photograph interpretation and limited legacy fieldwork. This work provides new geological knowledge and improves our understanding of the distribution, nature and glacial history of surficial materials. It contributes to resource assessments and effective land use management.
