AbstractThis Mackenzie Mountains and foothills paper covers a large region of the southern and western parts of the Northwest Territories extending from the continental divide in the Cordillera to the Interior Plains. This is a summary of the glacial and preglacial 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 preglacial landscapes and the extent of continental glaciers.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Chapter 4, Paper 3 is a summary of the glacial and pre-glacial history of southwestern Northwest Territories encompassing the central and southern Mackenzie Mountains and foothills. This glacial history incorporates over twenty years of field observations with maps of glacial limits and surficial geology to describe and account for the diverse assemblage of landforms, sediments and fossils in the region.
