The dataset presents the surficial geology of Châteauguay River watershed. The Quaternary sediments cover almost all the basin surface, except some bedrock outcrops located on Le Roche, on the Covey Hill north flank and on high elevations in the United States. Among the Quaternary sediments, there are the glacial sediments (till), coastal postglacial (sand and gravel), glaciofluvial (esker), eolian (sand hill), lacustrine (silt), marine (Champlain Sea clay), postglacial alluvium (sand and gravel) and organic deposits.
The purpose is to show a unified surficial geology of the study area. This dataset is used to realize other themes.
