The Lithoprobe SNORCLE (Slave – NORthern Cordillera Lithospheric Evolution) transect, one of the largest studies of this type in the history of Earth Sciences, encompasses an area of more than 1.65 × 106 km2 in northwestern Canada (e.g., fig. 1 of Cook and Erdmer 2005). Major geophysical surveys (reflection, refraction, and electromagnetics) took place along more than 2500 linear km, and 98 separate projects amounted to 109 project-years of complementing effort. The work has resulted in more than 150 publications by the time of this volume’s publication. The large scale of the SNORCLE transect has allowed a...
