Till sampling survey, NTS 21H, 11E, northern mainland Nova Scotia, 1982-1984.
(requires an Internet connection)
Approximately 300 till samples were collected on northern mainland Nova Scotia in about 1982-1984 at an average density of 1 sample per 13 km2. Samples were obtained from road cuts, sea cliffs and till pits at an average depth of 1.5 m below the modern solum. The data are published in Nova Scotia Department of Mines and Energy Open File Map 87-005 (Map 10-1987).
Paper map; map margin has data tables keyed to samples located on the map.

The geographic extent of the survey is defined by the following polygons:
Covers NTS 11E/5, 12, 13 and parts of NTS 21H/8, 9, 16 on northern mainland Nova Scotia. It is bounded to the northeast by Northumberland Strait, and the Minas Basin and Cobequid Bay cut through the southern part of the study area.
