report is about the Canadian Shield. I am
going to tell you about the geology appearance and location of the Canadian Shield in Alberta.
of the Canadian
in it is located in Alberta. In Alberta it is in a small northeastern
corner. The Shield takes up about
half of CanadaŐs land.
The Canadian Shield is made of gneiss, which is an
igneous rock. The Canadian Shield still only has Precambrian rock
on top because the mountains erosion never affected it because it was to far
there are granite headlands and sandy beaches. There are also granite cliffs in the
Shield. Because the mountains
erosion didn't affect the Shield's bedrock so the land there isn't good for
growing most things. Most of the
Shield is covered in jack pine forests.
The Canadian Shield is a beautiful pristine
environment mostly untouched by humans I hope you enjoyed my report.
