GSC Teacher's Field-trip Guide to the Geology of the Vancouver Area

Microform - 1994
Rate this:
This guidebook was prepared for one-day field excursions for groups of secondary school teachers in the British Columbia lower mainland. The guide begins with a general introduction to the geology of the lower mainland area and then describes and explains the features seen at four stops selected as being fairly representative of the main geologic components of the region. The first stop, Point Grey, shows features of the last 26,000 years and the second, at Little Mountain, exposes remnants of a probably extensive volcanic flow from the Oligocene. The third stop, between Third Beach and Lions Gate Bridge, reveals the underlying sandstone and conglomerate that form the bedrock of Vancouver, formed in the Cretaceous period. At Caulfeild, the fourth stop, the main components of the Coast Mountains are exposed. The rocks observed represent the oldest in the Vancouver area.
