The LITHOPROBE project is propelling Canadian
earth scientists into the next century -- ahead of other nations'
This continues a century-and-a-half-long Canadian tradition of
excellence in this sector of science.
The LITHOPROBE project is unique for its choice of subject,
its national scope, its complementary use of relevant earth-science
disciplines, and its collaboration among federal and provincial
geological surveys, the earth-science departments of most Canadian
universities, and private industry. It is a multidisciplinary,
all-Canadian undertaking in which Canadian earth scientists
take justifiable pride.
