Abstract

This dataset refers to the surficial geology in the Portneuf area, extending from 71ˮ30 to 72ˮ30. The area is mainly characterised by hydrogeological units composed of marine sand: superior delta sand, inferior delta sand, coastal sand and gravel, and alluvial terrace sand and gravel. The St. Narcisse Moraine designates also an important feature of the surficial geology.

Introduction
General process description
Process step Sources
The dataset was built according to the file: CVpquat1.TAB from the archives folder of the Porneuf project. Surfical geology unit were reclassified according to Geological Survey of Canada standard Surficial geology legend (http://dx.doi.org/10.4095/290144) when it was possible - with the understanding that some units might not perfectly match the new classification. The original classification was kept in the dataset.
