Metadata: Aquifer Vulnerability, Groundwater Geoscience Program

Identification

Abstract

A measure of the intrinsic susceptibility of an aquifer representing the tendency or likelihood for contaminants to reach a specified position in the groundwater system after introduction at some location above the uppermost aquifer. The method used to create the dataset is described in the metadata associated with the dataset. The dataset is a general assessment of the vulnerability of the hydrogeological unit considered as a whole. It features the local and regional qualifiers in a controlled vocabulary list referring to the extent where the vulnerability value is valid. Because the vulnerability is assessed using contextual indices linked to the regional hydrogeological settings, it is very unlikely to have an homogeneous range of data throughout the various hydrogeologic units across the country for this dataset. Hence, the vulnerability dataset will not qualify as an homogeneous dataset. A more generic reclassification using for examples three vulnerability classes could then be used to solve this problem. Each sub layers used to create the global vulnerability index can be provided along with the final vulnerability index map.

Lineage

Message Date lineage
Lineage is the description of the sources and steps used to create the current dataset.


Introduction
Data comes from each of the groundwater mapping project.
Process step Sources
In the objective to standardize the projection of all the shapefiles, the vulnerability shapefile was projected in UTM NAD83 - zone 10N with the ""Project Raster"" tool.
Russell, H.A.J., Benoit, N. and J Pisani, J. 2015. Nanoose Bay - Deep Bay Area, Nanaimo Lowland Groundwater Study Atlas, Regional District of Nanaimo, British Columbia; Geological Survey of Canada, Open File 7877, xxx p. doi:10.4095/xxxxxx
The datasets were extracted from all projects constituting this series.
Groundwater mapping projects.
