Description

A digital grid of the subcrop edge of the McMurray Formation, originally modeled from borehole data and adjusted to present-day and paleo river erosion. Values in the grid correspond to areas where the unit is present (denoted by the number '6'), or where it is absent (denoted by the null value...

Description

A digital grid of the top of the Empress Fm. Unit 1 sand and gravel, (the lowermost unit in the Empress Formation), where present, or the topography of the surrounding landscape, where Unit 1 is absent. The unit is originally modeled from borehole data and adjusted to the bedrock surface and...
