Guide to the Geology & Landforms of Grey & Bruce Counties (PDF)


Categories: ,


The aim of this book is to present an over-view of this subject that will be intelligible to anyone interested in this unique area. Geological formations are described first, followed by glaciation and landforms resulting from the ice age. Lake features are outlined and there is a chapter on karst formations, followed by an outline of post-glacial formations created by wind and river action.

Grey and Bruce counties are in an unusual position in Ontario, sandwiched between Lake Huron and Georgian Bay, dominated by the Niagara Escarpment and the tilt of the Michigan Basin. There are many Areas of Natural and Scientific Interest (ANSI’s) related specifically to Geology. A Geology and Landform site map with ANSI locations is included. There is also a map of the Physiography and a third of Bedrock Geology. In the appendices, locations are identified where specific features can be viewed.

This product is the electronic PDF version (not a physical book).
