The groundwater atlas focuses on the Edmonton-Calgary Corridor (ECC) and examines nonsaline groundwater based on its geological, hydrological and hydrochemical properties.
The atlas will help Albertans better understand the province's groundwater resources by highlighting where they are and by describing the groundwater-mapping processes used to map these resources, starting with a description of the physical and chemical properties of groundwater, and then providing details of the results of the mapping work.
The ECC atlas has the following sections
Each section summarizes AGS’ work for the ECC groundwater-mapping project and the methods used to create the maps. Current and future publications will detail how the groundwater inventory was completed.
There are two digital versions of the ECC atlas. Both contain the same material but have been saved at different resolutions. The low-resolution version lets people easily view the atlas online, whereas the high-resolution version lets people print a high-quality copy.
