AbstractThe Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) under the Natural Resources Canada, Earth Sciences Sector Groundwater Program has evaluated key aquifers across Canada. The Paskapoo Aquifer System is one of the largest systems identified as a key aquifer in the country. Data requirements to study this 66,768 km2 area went beyond the usual requirements of local scale aquifer studies and a relational database implementation (EarthFX Inc. 2005) of the Alberta Environment (AENV), Groundwater Information Center (GIC) water well database was used to facilitate analysis of the required data. The data dictionaries in this report define the data that was received from AENV "as is" prior to being imported into the EarthFX data model. The Data Dictionary for the April 2003 release of the GIC database defines the data that was subsequently imported into the EarthFX model and provides background information for how the data was interpreted and used in the study. The Data Dictionary for the May 2007 release of the GIC database is an accompanying standalone document that can be used as a guide for evaluating recent changes to the GIC database. The primary purpose of the dictionaries is to help users interpret and understand the GIC data structure and its content for the purpose of extracting meaningful data that can be use for local and regional groundwater studies. Presenting the background information in the context of relational database concepts also provides a view for future database modeling, storage, and management of the data.
