Perspectives on the deep structure of a late-Archaean Greenstone belt: Results from the Abitibi -Grenville LITHOPROBE project. Special volume, Evolving Earth Symposium, Kyoto, Japan, Lithos, Lithoprobe, Abitibi-Grenville Issue: AB Purpose: The data archive is a planned output of the LITHOPROBE project and is meant to be accessible to all Canadians. Regional seismic lines an d magnetotelluric sites provide an excellent framework for understanding crustal scale geological features in many important areas of the Country. This cooperative project deployed 28 inst. along the Lithoprobe Abitibi-Grenville geologic transect to complement seismic reflection profiles and magnetotelluric MT data. We are testing the hypothesis that both mantle seismic anisotropy and mantle structure in the region are related to Proterozoic and Archean orogenic episodes. Prior to the LITHOPROBE study, one component of the Abitibi-Grenville Transect, the overall deep structure of the feature was unknown. Through transect studies, a new three-dimensional structural model has been defined, resolving the causes of the elliptical shape of the structure and a large positive gravity anomaly, both of which were.

Transects: View surficial geology map. Scientists working within the LITHOPROBE project carry out research at many locations across Canada. The philosophy behind LITHOPROBE is to focus research on regions chosen for geologic, historical, economic, and societal reasons. By concentrating multidisciplinary studies on specific regions, a far more complete understanding of the earth is obtained. LITHOPROBE is Canada's major national research project in the earth sciences. It combines multidisciplinary earth science studies of the Canadian landmass and surrounding offshore margins to determine how the northern North American continent has formed over geological time from million years ago to the present.
