AbstractThis map and the related geodatabase illustrate the bedrock geology of northern Axel Heiberg Island, northern Meighen Island, and part of northern Ellesmere Island. Major features of the area include: ~Neoproterozoic to Silurian Pearya Terrane; lower Paleozoic volcanic and deep water facies of the Clements Markham and Hazen fold belts; Princess Margaret Arch; diverse upper Paleozoic and Mesozoic rocks of the Sverdrup Basin; and Paleogene strata related to the Eurekan Orogeny. Neogene sediments of Meighen Island are part of an extensive post-orogenic cover preserved throughout the western Arctic Islands.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
