AbstractThe bedrock topography in the Moncton,New Brunswick area has been compiled from seismic investigations, outcrop elevations, and borehole data. The seismic data were obtained by using a model MD-1 hammer refraction seismograph as an adjunct to geological and hydrogeological studies in the area. In general, the present day drainage system is controlled by the ancestral drainage system developed on the bedrock. Neither bedrock lithology nor bedding can be differentiated on a basis of distinct and diagnostic seismic velocities. The sharp bend in the Petitcodiac River at Moncton existed in the ancestral drainage system. Bedrock geology and bedrock topography are presented in separate figures.
