AbstractThis A-series map of the Erichsen Lake NTS map sheet (47E), Baffin Island, Nunavut, was compiled and somewhat generalized from Open Files 1598-1613, which are 1:50 000 scale surficial (Quaternary) geology maps. The surficial geology of the area was not mapped previously. The Erichsen Lake area was entirely glaciated by the Baffin Sector of the Laurentide Ice Sheet. The surficial geology thus reflects the effects of glaciation, ice recession, and associated relative sea level adjustments. The A-series and open file maps share a common legend, which has been adapted from the legend of previously published adjoining maps of northwestern Baffin Island. The Open File maps were prepared from airphoto interpretation by the author in 2002 and subsequently field checked in part by the author. Field observations from a dense network of glacial drift sampling stations were provided by De Beers Canada Exploration and incorporated in the maps during final editing. These maps are the first to be released from a new project, which also involves mapping of areas to the east and south.
