    Quaternary geology and landforms of the Dawson Creek Region, British Columbia, NTS 93P/9, 10, 15, Quaternary geology. The Earth's youngest period, the Quaternary, includes the last 2–3 million years and is characterized by several glaciations and warmer interglacial intervals. The cause of the climatic changes is probably to be found in the Earth's orbital parameters, which result in lower summer insolation in the northern hemisphere.

    The informal Lower Fernie shelf limestone and clastic unit of northwestern Alberta and northeastern British Columbia is commonly but incorrectly called the Nordegg Member (Fernie Formation). The Nordegg Member proper is a banded black chert and limestone . the branch of geology that studies the Quaternary, or Anthropogenic, system and the corresponding period of earth history [seeANTHROPOGENIC SYSTEM (PERIOD)].The Quaternary period covers the period directly preceding the modern age, and therefore Quaternary geology is closely linked with the scientific disciplines that study the present-day face of the earth and the existing organic world.

    Doctoral thesis. A surficial geology map for the Grande Prairie region is presented, with 20 map units designated. The oldest unconsolidated sediments recognised in the area consist of Middle Wisconsinan sands and gravels, pre-dating Laurentide glaciation of the area.   Source-rock characteristics of Lower Triassic Montney Formation presented in this study shows the total organic carbon (TOC) richness, thermal maturity, hydrocarbon generation, geographical distribution of TOC and thermal maturity (Tmax) in Fort St. John study area (T86N, R23W and T74N, R13W) and its environs in northeastern British Columbia, Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (WCSB).Cited by: 1.

Fenton, J.G. Pawlowicz, R.C. Paulen, G.J. Prior and R.A. Olson Alberta Geological Survey, Alberta Energy and Utilities Board, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada INTRODUCTION During the last decade, a considerable amount of research has taken place in northern Alberta.

The three major sections of this volume include six chapters describing the regional Quaternary geology of Canada, two describing the Quaternary geology and climatic history of Greenland, and six that review applied Quaternary geology in Canada, including chapters on paleobotanical analysis, geodynamics, geomorphic processes, terrain geochemistry, Quaternary resources, and the influence of the.

In particular Quaternary geology study the process and deposits that developed during the Quaternary, a period characterized by glacial-interglacial cycles. Quaternary geology has developed over time from being originally a branch of historical geology to becoming a science on its own.

Lake Peace was a post ice-age glacial lake in what is now the Peace River basin in northeastern British Columbia and northwestern Alberta. It formed approximat BCE, after the Last Glacial Maximum, as the Laurentide Ice Sheet and Cordilleran Ice Sheet began to melt and retreat, and may have played an important role as an easily navigatable section of an inland human migration route.

The maps cover the paleogeography of North America 8, years ago (3 sheets:years ago andyears ago), the Quaternary geology mapping in Canada and the late Wisconsinan and Holocene Retreat of the Laurentide Ice Sheet.

Research Rationale and Objectives In valleys of the British Columbian Coast and Cascade Mountains, the number of detailed Quaternary studies is quite limited. Quaternary geology. The Quaternary is the most recent period in the Earth’s history: the last million years.

It is marked by the appearance of man as well as repeated glacial/interglacial cycles, which strongly influenced the mountains and their environment. Quaternary geology and landforms of the Eastern Peace River region, British Columbia; British Columbia Geological Survey Branch, OF ; 50, 94 ASE.
