Alberta Environment and Alberta Geological Survey began a cross-ministry plan to inventory Alberta's groundwaterresources. The first area of study was the Edmonton-Calgary Corridor.بقلم Alberta Geological Survey
 
The Mineral Core Research Facility is undergoing a major facelift to create a special collection of core from key stratigraphic units, making it more accessible for clients and more efficient fo Alberta Geological Survey staff to locate, layout, and rack individual core.بقلم Alberta Geological Survey
 
Mr. Hsi-Hung from the Central Geological Survey of Taiwan visited the Alberta Geological Survey for a three-day field trip to Turtle Mountain in south-western Alberta to view the monitoring network on the South Peak of Turtle Mountain.بقلم Alberta Geological Survey
 
In conjunction with the semi-annual meeting of the National Geological Surveys Committee, held in Montreal in September 2010, a field trip was held for members of all provincial, territorial and federal surveys. The goal of the field trip was to observe and understand the geology along a section of Highway 10 between Montreal and the copper mines i…
 
The Geology, Environmental Science and Economics Branch and the Oil Sands Branch of the ERCB began work in a pilot study area to characterize the stratigraphy above and below the bitumen deposits where resources are proposed to be extracted through in situ means.بقلم Alberta Geological Survey
 
Although it can't be definitively said, it is quite possible that Fran Hein might just literally love rocks. Her passion for geology is obvious to anyone who has worked with her, and her knowledge of the geology of Alberta's oil sands area is encyclopaedic. This passion for geology has taken her, at various times, from Canada's east coast to the we…
 
Alberta Geological Survey is pleased to announce that Dr. Mark Fenton has been awarded the 2010 Provincial Geologists Medal. This medal is awarded annually to recognize major contributions in geoscientific research.بقلم Alberta Geological Survey
 
Alberta has historically been a seismically quiet part of North America. Monitoring of seismic activity within Alberta began in earnest during the mid-1960s. In 1977, there was a significant increase in recorded events and the reason for the apparent increase is unclear. Alberta Geological Survey is collaborating with the Universities of Alberta an…
 
In the 1970s and 1980s, Alberta Geological Survey studied surface and subsurface geology in urban areas to provide information that would aid future development and land-use planning. This type of study has been re-initiated within the Geological Hazards Section with the first study focusing on the town of Peace River.…
 
In 2006, Alberta Geological Survey (AGS) initiated a program to assess the regional uranium potential of southern Alberta. This program was started after more than 1 million hectares were staked by junior exploration companies to renew exploration efforts in this area after a 20-year-long hiatus, when uranium prices were depressed and the prospect …
 
In response to increasing rates of urbanization and industrialization in the ECC and the foreseeable pressures that this will have on existing groundwater supplies, Alberta Geological Survey (AGS), in partnership with AENV, has initiated a multiyear project to characterize nonsaline aquifer complexes in the ECC.…
 
In this edition of Rock chips, we begin regular feature on geologists and engineers who have made or are continuing to make important contributions to our understanding of geology and geological engineering through their careers in Alberta. In this edition, we examine the career of Dr. Jozsef Toth.بقلم Alberta Geological Survey
 
This is part 2 of 3 in a continuing series of summaries of igneous activity in Alberta. This article reviews metal potential of the Early Cretaceous (ca. 100 Ma) intrusive and volcanic rocks in southwestern Alberta.بقلم Alberta Geological Survey
 
As part of the ongoing revision of the provincial metallogenic inventory and development of an up-to-date systematics of the potential metallic deposits in Alberta, AGS conducted a reconnaissance field study and outcrop sampling of igneous and sedimentary host rocks in southern and southwestern Alberta in the summer 2008. This is part one of the st…
 
Declining reserves and the associated increasing cost of oil and gas has prompted industry to look at alternative sources of energy. Alberta contains a great amount of coal resources at shallow depths that facilitate economical power generation; however, there are huge coal resources at depth that are currently not economic to mine. This represents…
 
By measuring the spring's changes in flow volume over time and the chemical constituents in the water, we can tell a great deal about groundwater flow and the rocks or soil hosting the water. Knowing the locations of the springs throughout the province provides the first step in understanding groundwater - all without drilling a well.…
 
Since 2005, Alberta Geological Survey has been responsible for a warning system and studies on the South Peak of Turtle Mountain, the site of the 1903 Frank Slide. Our activities include annual maintenance and repairs of instruments on the mountain and annual review of data trends. We also study how portions of the mountain are moving.…
 
As project staff members complete new geological studies, they frequently incorporate historical data into their work, including digitizing existing maps. Whenever possible, we publish these digital data for others to use. We recently published the two GIS datasets described in this podcast.بقلم Alberta Geological Survey
 
Alberta Geological Survey and Alberta Environment are collaborating to map and understand the province's groundwater resources. A team of geologists and technologists will map the extent of the major aquifers; characterize the physical properties of the aquifers; quantify the chemical properties of the water within these aquifers; assess current gr…
 
August 29, 2008 marked the grand re-opening of the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre in the Crowsnest Pass in southwestern Alberta. After a nine-month closure and a $1.5 million renovation, visitors can relive the Frank Slide story in a more personal, interactive and creative setting, involving first-hand accounts by the people who lived through the …
 
The goal of the Alberta Geological Survey's Saline Aquifer Mapping project, or SAM for short, will be to provide public-domain, digital maps of the major saline aquifers from the crystalline basement to the lowermost aquifer of the Colorado Group.بقلم Alberta Geological Survey
 
Modern attempts to use geothermal energy go back more than a 100 years, but its development has been uneven due to slow technological breakthroughs and historically low oil and gas prices. Recent high energy prices and concerns over global warming have stimulated renewed interest and support for what is potentially a very large and renewable energy…
 
As part of a multi-year initiative, AGS undertook surficial mapping of the McLennan area in the northeast quadrant of the Winagami map area. This study was primarily to map the surfical geology and determine the Quaternary history.بقلم Alberta Geological Survey
