Min­er­als, moun­tains and more land­marks, wa­ter in all its forms: 40 ques­tions that will test the depth of your Cana­dian ge­ol­ogy knowl­edge.

Canadian Geographic - - INFOGRAPHI­C - BY NICK WALKER

This is the es­sen­tial Canada — ev­ery­thing that lies be­neath our feet and in our oceans, from con­ti­nen­tal tec­tonic plates and wa­ter sup­plies to glacial ice and the min­er­als and other nat­u­ral re­sources we use ev­ery day. This ge­ol­ogy themed edi­tion of Cana­dian Geo­graphic’s an­nual ul­ti­mate quiz was cre­ated in hon­our of the Ge­o­log­i­cal Sur­vey of Canada, which in 2017 — Canada’s 150th an­niver­sary — will turn 175. The Sur­vey is the na­tion’s old­est sci­en­tific agency, and it has a lot in com­mon with The Royal Cana­dian Ge­o­graph­i­cal So­ci­ety, pub­lisher of this mag­a­zine. RCGS founder Charles Cam­sell and many other So­ci­ety Pres­i­dents and Fel­lows since have been Ge­o­log­i­cal Sur­vey ge­ol­o­gists and sur­vey­ors. The Sur­vey has shown us ex­actly what Canada is made of and how it all fits to­gether. Let’s see how you fare on 40 tough ques­tions about the coun­try’s foun­da­tions.
