AbstractThis map and the related geodatabase illustrate the bedrock geology of central Ellesmere Island and eastern Axel Heiberg Island. Major features of the area include high-grade Paleoproterozoic metasedimentary and granitoid rocks of the Inglefield Orogen, unconformable lower Paleozoic shelf (and some deep-water strata) of the Central Ellesmere fold belt, the foreland clastic wedge of the Ellesmerian Orogen, unconformable Upper Paleozoic and Mesozoic strata of the Sverdrup Basin, and diverse Paleogene clastic rocks derived from the Eurekan Orogen. The Silurian and Devonian interval includes the depositional record of Bache Uplift.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
