Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
The Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) is currently working to provide an inventory of earth surface materials, landforms and geomorphic processes in northeastern British Columbia as part of the Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM) Program Yukon and Liard Basin project. Preliminary interpretation of surficial geology from air photos, satellite imagery and LiDAR, field observations and digital elevation models provides new insight into subglacial processes, patterns of ice flow, deglacial history, and associated sedimentary environments associated with the Late Wisconsinan Laurentide Ice Sheet in northern Canada. Application of a new GEM surficial geology data model provides government agencies, resource industries and others access to the public geoscience information that supports long-term investment, targeted exploration, sustainable natural resource development and management, and an understanding of geological hazards in the region.
