AbstractThis map and the related geodatabase illustrate the bedrock geology of central and southern Banks Island (including the greater part of Aulavik National Park of Canada) and northwestern Victoria Island. Major features of the area include Meso- and Neoproterozoic strata of Amundsen Basin, diabase sills and extrusive basaltic rocks related to the Franklin Large Igneous Province (ca. 723 Ma), Cambrian to Devonian strata of Arctic Platform and the Ellesmerian foreland, unconformably overlain by near-flat-lying Cretaceous and Paleogene strata of Banks Basin, and unconsolidated Neogene sediments of the Arctic margin.
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.
