Surficial geology, Douglas Harbour (south), Nunavut, NTS 56-H south: M183-1/312-2017E-PDF

"The Douglas Harbour South map area (NTS 56H-S) identifies surficial materials and associated landforms left by the retreat of the last remnants of the Laurentide Ice Sheet which covered the area until about 6000 years ago. The surficial geology is based on the interpretation of aerial photos, LANDSAT 7 and SPOT satellite imageries, and fieldwork. This work was undertaken to provide new geological knowledge and improve our understanding of the distribution, nature and glacial history of surficial materials. This work will support informed decision making for resource development and land use"--Summary provided by publisher.
