AbstractDouglas Channel is a 100 km long fjord located south of the municipality of Kitimat, in northwest British Columbia. The North Kitimat Arm map area covers the northern portion, the head of Douglas Channel where the town of Kitimat and Kitamaat Village are located. The area also covers a distance of about 10 km from Kitimat to Bish Creek. Mapping of surficial sediments, compilation of landslide deposits, and preliminary interpretation of bedrock types up to height of land were primarily carried out using British Columbia airphotos dated from 2001, 2003, and 2007 ranging in scales from 1:15 000 to 1:25 000. Older, field-based mapping by the authors in some isolated parts of the study area was incorporated into this mapping, complemented with additional, reconnaissance-level field observation in 2015 and 2016.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This is one of six maps that cover the surficial geology and landslide inventory of Douglas Channel a 100 km fjord, located in Northwest British Columbia. It was compiled to provide baseline information on the surface sediments and slope stability of the fjord.
