Abstract

In the Canadian Northwest Territories west of Hudson Bay, the postglacial marine transgression was more extensive than in any other part of North America. Although there are numerous isolated observations of strand lines and other raised marine features, there has been no systematic study of the maximum depth of this sea and the form of the subsequent emergence of the land.
