Abstract(Summary)
This open file report presents the results from field programs conducted in 2006 and 2007 to test and apply shallow seismic reflection techniques as a means of identifying and imaging buried valleys or channels in southwest Manitoba. The work was conducted collaboratively with Manitoba Water Stewardship (MWS) and with the assistance of local Conservation Districts, and with funding from the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration (PFRA). Data were acquired across three buried valleys: the Medora-Waskada valley, the Pierson valley, and the Spiritwood valley (near Killarney). Results clearly show that seismic reflection data acquisition using the Minivib/landstreamer technology can be used very effectively to image buried-channels in this geological environment, and provides subsurface architectural information that is critical to the identification of buried valleys and a preliminary assessment of the sediment infill characteristics.
