Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Mackenzie Mountains and foothills glacial limits map covers a large region of the south and west of the Northwest Territories extending from the continental divide in the Cordillera to the interior Plains. This is a summary of the glacial and pre-glacial history of the region supported by maps of glacial limits and surficial geology, as well as important stratigraphic and field-observation sites, depicting remnant features of pre-glacial landscapes.
