AbstractThis map and the related geodatabase illustrate the bedrock geology of part of northern Ellesmere Island including Quttinirpaaq National Park. Major features of the area include: Pearya Terrane; volcanic, deep water and shelf facies of the Clements Markham, Hazen and Central Ellesmere fold belts; rift-related Upper Paleozoic strata; post-rift Permian and Mesozoic strata of Sverdrup basin; and Paleogene strata associated with the Eurekan Orogeny and fault displacements within and bordering Nares Strait.
