AbstractThis map and the related geodatabase illustrate the bedrock geology of eastern Melville Island, Byam Martin Island, and western Bathurst Island, including smaller islands in the same area. Major features of the area include the westerly trending salt-involved Parry Islands fold belt developed in Middle and Upper Devonian foreland basin strata, and unconformable Carboniferous and younger strata. A separate phase of salt tectonics, including diapirs of northeastern Melville Island, is associated with the evolution of the Sverdrup Basin.
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.
