Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This Atlas illustrates the characteristics of groundwater in southern Alberta, Canada, and northern Montana, U.S.A. The Atlas is a result of research studies performed over the period of 2009 and 2015 from a project within the Geological Survey of Canada's Groundwater program, and research works done by a Ph.D. thesis program in partnership between the GSC-Quebec Division, INRS-ETE and École des Mines de Paris (Mines ParisTech), France. This is an important contribution to the understanding of a precious hidden resource of groundwater and as educating tool for citizens and water managers in southern Alberta and northern Montana.
