Book Description

Landscapes and Landforms of Western Canada; 1st edition; (PDF) is the only ebook to emphasize on the geomorphological landscapes of Canada West. It encapsulates the little-appreciated diversity of Canada’s landscapes; and the nature of the geomorphological landscape; which deserves more publicity. Three of the most important geomorphological facts associated to Canada are that 90% of its total area emerged from ice-sheet cover relatively lately; from a geological point of view; permafrost underlies 50% of its landmass and the country enjoys the advantages of having three oceans as its borders: the Pacific; Arctic; and Atlantic oceans. Canada West is a land of tremendous contrasts — from the rugged Cordillera to the vast open spaces of the Prairies; from the humid west-coast forests to the semi-desert in the interior of British Columbia and from the wide Mackenzie river system of the to steep; small; cascading streams on Vancouver Island. The thickest Canadian permafrost is located in the Yukon; and extensive areas of the Cordillera are underlain by scattered permafrost side-by-side with the never-glaciated plateaus of the Yukon. One of the curiosities of Canada West is the sight of volcanic landforms; extruded through the ice cover of the late Pleistocene and Holocene epochs; which have also left a strong mark on the landscape. The Fraser and Mackenzie deltas offer the contrast of large river deltas; discharging respectively into the Pacific and Arctic oceans.
