  In recent years there have been rapid strides in our understanding of plate-tectonic processes, many developments in methods of basin analysis, and the accumulation of much new surface and subsurface geological and geophysical data. Projects such as COCORP (in the United States) and Lithoprobe (in Canada) have provided essential insights into the deep crustal structure of the continent. Geological Atlas of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, ed. by Grant D. Mossop and Irina Shetsen (illustrated HTML in Canada) Items below (if any) are from related and broader terms. Filed under: Geology, Structural -- Canada, Western.

The compilation of a new Geological Atlas of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin is a multi-institutional, multi-disciplinary endeavour involving scores of individuals throughout the west - project sponsors, data donors, patrons of publications, participant's employers, and on the order of authors and contributors from industry, government. Geological Atlas Of The Northern Canadian Mainland Sedimentary Basin David W. Morrow* and James Dixon Geological Survey of Canada (Calgary), Natural Resources Canada rd Street NW, Calgary, AB, T2L 2A7 [email protected] ABSTRACT An atlas compilation for this region of northern Canada was begun in the mid-.

The Geological Atlas of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) was designed primarily as a reference volume documenting the subsurface geology of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin. This GIS dataset is one of a collection of shapefiles representing part the Atlas, Coal Resources of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (Chap Figure 2: Coalfields of the WCSB).   It does have rocks labeled as coming from all ten ages, but some interesting data can be found in The Geological Atlas of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin.. The Williston Basin is part of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin. The details of the labeling of these strata are as follows.

What are the map projections for the maps of the Geological Atlas of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin. Most of the maps in the Geological Atlas of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin were plotted using an in-house cartographic program. These maps have custom projection parameters depending upon the geographic extent of the area shown.

The depositional record of these events is partly recorded in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin which is a prolific producer of oil, gas and coal. Hydrocarbons are also an important part of the sediment accumulation story since the Jurassic off the East Coast.

Geological Atlas of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, 4, has been cited by the following article: TITLE: Contribution to Gas Production from Minor Coal Seams and Adjacent Shales: Numerical Modelling Results for the Mannville Coal Measures, South Central Alberta. The Hydrogeologic Atlas enhances exploration and development activities by illuminating the relationship between the flow of water and the migration and accumulation of petroleum.

Map units were defined that include all significant oil and gas reservoirs in the basin. Ideally the map units form relatively thin units of permeable strata over-and underlain by poorly permeable sediments. This report presents 3D mapping and modelling methods at geological survey organizations across provincial, territorial, state, and federal levels around the world.

This document contains 30 chapters pulled together into one cohesive volume. Sedimentary Basin south of 60Ε are covered by well-known geological atlas compilations. There is no comparable atlas-style source document for the relatively unexplored northern Canadian mainland part of the Western Sedimentary Basin.

Shetsen. The Sedimentary Basins of the United States and Canada, Second Edition, focuses on the large, regional, sedimentary accumulations in Canada and the United States. Each chapter provides a succinct summary of the tectonic setting and structural and paleogeographic evolution of the basin it covers, with details on structure and stratigraphy.

Over that time, almost every conceivable geological process has taken place here, resulting in the formation of a wide array of rock types, and some of the most important fossil deposits in the world.
