AbstractGlacial sedimentary aquifers are the most commonly exploited groundwater resource in Canada. To better understand regional groundwater supply issues the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) has been completing groundwater studies in glaciated terrains for over 25 years. It has predominantly focused work on 30 key Canadian aquifers. There is a need to consolidate and synthesis knowledge from numerous case studies and the broader literature within a framework. This project will address a classification for groundwater in glacial settings, consolidate data and knowledge for those settings, and collect new data as necessary. Analysis and modelling will enhance existing information in the published literature. To ensure the relevance and ability to support the broader Canadian groundwater community methods developments continues in a number of areas. Communication of results is critical and the project is embracing traditional avenues and also through participation in the Groundwater Project and contribution to international and provincial Webinars.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
On October 14, 2020 all project leaders under the GGP intended to present virtually the status of their research to all NRCan employees wanting to attend. Due to technical difficulties the event was cancelled. All five of the PowerPoint presentations prepared for this event are included in this synthesis and the pre-recorded presentations can be seen on YouTube via this link: Key words: groundwater classification, methods development, groundwater portal, characterization, shallow aquifers, Fox Creek, water resource, modelling, Ring of Fire and assessment.
