Description:
Each year, Environment Canada produces a National HYDAT CD-ROM which provides rapid access to a stand alone version of the National Water Data Archive. This large database contains daily, monthly, and/or instantaneous information for streamflow, water level, suspended sediment concentration, sediment particle size, and sediment load data for over 2900 active stations and some 5100 discontinued sites across Canada. Please click here to view the Reference Index which lists all of the water stations and their operating program. Using a new Windows based software interface developed by Environment Canada, users have the power and flexibility to retrieve, view, subset, download, and print selected data from the CD-ROM. Please visit our HYDAT software page. It contains links to download the most recent version of the HYDAT software, tips for users, and answers to frequently asked questions. We also have a copy of the most recent HYDAT CD-ROM User's Manual online. Click here to download (2.1 MB). Please note that amendments to the User's Manual are documented in the HYDAT MANUAL AMENDMENTS. The current version of HYDAT (version 2000-2.01) is available from Environment Canada's Water Survey of Canada offices (click here for a list of contacts). The HYDAT CD contains hydrometric data updated to the end of 2000 for most locations; however, data for all stations processed through the Province of Quebec is only current to the end of 1997. To view samples of HYDAT, choose one of the following: * daily streamflow data * sample discharge hydrograph produced from HYDAT daily flow data * mean monthly water level data * sediment summary data For those with a high speed Internet connection a CD-ROM image (380MB ISO) of the HYDAT CD is available for download.

Tectonic Assemblages of Ontario Seamless Coverage Data Set 11, 1993. (1993)

Date: 1993
Creator: Ontario Geological Survey
Datum: NAD 27
Projection: Lambert Conformal Conic
Scale:
Access: CD-ROM [253] or CD-ROM [263]
Description:
The Tectonic Geology Data Set is a digital interpretation of the Tectonic Geology of the Province of Ontario, It illustrates this by 1) grouping volcanic and sedimentary rock units into tectonic assemblages in Precambrain terrains and depositional sequences in the overlying Paleozoic and Mesozoic sedimentary basins; and 2) interpreting the ranges of emplacement ages of all major intrusions and grouping some plutons into suites. Among a range of tectonically significant features, the map also displays major folds, faults, stratigraphic younging directions, interpreted centres of volcanism and locations of U/Pb age determinations, which are numbered and cross-referenced to a table of ages. This map represents the first attempt internationally to subdivide Archean rock units into Tectonic assemblages, and the first attempt in Ontario to subdivide Paleozic and Mesozoic rock units into depositional sequences. The purpose of this map is to portray the distribution of magmatism and sedimentation in time and space in the rock record of Ontario. The intended user is a geologist with an academic or applied mineral exploration interest in the components of the bedrock of Ontario that forms the basis of its geochronometric and tectonic record.
