Identification

Abstract

This dataset presents the piezometric surface elevation in meter above sea level of the bedrock aquifers in the south-central area of the Maritimes Carboniferous Basin. The study area extends from 65°30' à 63°30'. The data were obtained from database of New Brunswick (219 values), Nova Scotia (225 values) and Prince Edward Island (153 values), and from the fieldwork (351 data). The data taken before 1998 were not used in this study. The isolines were traced with SURFER through kriging using an exponential variogram with a correlation length of 21 km. The resulting map shows that the groundwater generally flows towards the ocean, but that watersheds of large rivers have a significant influence on groundwater flow.

Introduction
General process description
Process step Sources
The raster dataset comes from the file MGWI_clip_piezo.shp. The file was converted to a raster by attributing the values of the GRIDCODE field to pixels. The values of the GRIDCODE field were associated to water level values using the map 5-5 of the Atlas of the South-Central Area of the Maritimes Carboniferous Basin: 1 and 5 : 0 - 5 m; 10 : 5 - 10 m; 20 : 10 - 20 m; 50 : 20 - 50 m; 100 : 50 - 100 m; 150 : 100 - 150 m; 200 : 150 - 200 m; 255: > 200 m.
