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.

more about the research carried out in the various transects.
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:
