SNORCLE AB SC THOT WS GL KSZ AG ECSOOT LE 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.

Transects: The study areas are called transects. LITHOPROBE has coordinated 10 transects that span much of the Canadian landmass. These are outlined by the boxes in the map below.

By clicking on the map or on the links below, you can find out more about the research carried out in the various transects.

Access the LITHOPROBE seismic and MT data archive:
Seismic reflection, refraciton and magnetotelluric (MT) data collected by LITHOPROBE in its 10 transects across Canada now are archived at the Seismology and Electromagnetic Section of the Geological Survey of Canada. These data are available for interested companies, institutions and individuals. Please visit:
