AbstractA new hydrogeology project aims at delineating and characterizing aquifers and groundwater flow in the Greater Vancouver and lower Fraser Valley regions. Important aspects of the project are summarized, in particular the groundwater database, and experimental geophysical (ground penetrating radar, seismic and EM) and geochemical techniques. Preliminary sedimentological studies in the Brookswood unconfined aquifer are provided to calibrate the ground penetrating radar data.
