This dataset shows surficial geology in the Mirabel area. The study area is located northwest of Montreal, includes four regional county municipalities: Argenteuil, Deux-Montagnes, Mirabel and Therese-De-Blainville. The Quaternary sediments in the region control the recharge of the fractured bedrock aquifer and determine the conditions of its confinement. The main settings are: buried valleys, till plain, Sainte-Thérèse esker, and area of secondary channels and lag deposits.
The purpose is to show a unified surficial geology of the study area. This dataset is used to realize other themes.
