The eight virtual field trips below were prepared for our first IGCP683 field trip in Canada, which is held from May 19 to May 23, 2022, after the Annual Meeting of the Geological Association of Canada (GAC), Mineralogical Association of Canada (MAC), the International Association of Hydrogeologists – Canadian National Committee (IAH-CNC), and the Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists (CSPG) in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada May 15-18, 2022. The purpose is to provide context for the live field trip, and a resource for future use for IGCP683 participants and beyond. Field trip locations are shown below, on a configuration of the continents at the time of Pangea.
