AbstractThis map and the related geodatabase illustrate the bedrock geology of southwestern Axel Heiberg Island, the greater part of Ellef Ringnes Island, all of King Christian, Amund Ringnes, Cornwall, and Griffith islands, in addition to various other small islands. Major features of the area include mostly Mesozoic strata of the Sverdrup basin penetrated by salt diapirs on Axel Heiberg Island and the Ringnes islands. Compressive deformation is pronounced on Axel Heiberg island; less so to the west. Cretaceous basalts and intrusive rocks (mostly gabbro) are associated with the High Arctic Large Igneous province.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This map and the accompanying spatial files provide users with a flexible means of accessing the geology of the Canadian Arctic Islands. The present publication is one of fifteen collectively covering all of the Canadian Arctic Islands north and west of Baffin Island.
