AbstractThe surficial deposits of Eastern Ontario include a series of buried and/or confined glacial features, including esker deposits, beneath fine-grained Champlain Sea sediment. Groundwater from these eskers is the primary municipal drinking water source for a number of towns and villages in the area. Geophysical surveying methods, in particular shallow P- and S-wave seismic reflection profiling, have been extremely successful in locating the buried esker, and in delineating its subsurface structure and lateral extent. As well, other hydrogeologically important information can be deduced from detailed analyses of the geophysical profiles in combination with groundtruth from cored stratigraphic boreholes.
