Abstract: A great diversity of landslide types occur in the Vancouver region in response to high relief. About million years ago, myriad exotic terranes began accreting to form what is now British Columbia in southwest Canada.

Today, the region’s tremendous topography, which rises from sea to sky over just a few kilometers, allows outdoor pursuits year-round.

Sydney Cannings and Richard Cannings tell the story of the province's geology and the history of its living creatures. Starting million years ago, when there was no British Columbia west of the present Rocky Mountains, the authors take us on a journey through time, describing the collisions of island chains called terranes, the sliding of plates, the erupting of volcanos, and the movement /5(20).

Geology is the study of planet Earth, its origin and evolution, its fundamental structure, the properties of minerals, rocks, and fluids of which it is composed, and the evolution of its biosphere. Studying geology at UBC's Vancouver campus is an opportunity to live and work in a beautiful natural geological laboratory, literally at your doorstep.

The Chuckanut Formation in northwestern Washington, its extension in southwestern British Columbia, and various related formations in central Washington are fluvial sedimentary formations of Eocene age, deposited from about 54 Ma to around 42 to 34 Ma.
