AGS delivers geoscience in several key areas, including surficial mapping, bedrock mapping, geological modelling, resource evaluation (hydrocarbons, minerals), groundwater, and geological hazards. We also are responsible for maintaining the Alberta Table of Formations and providing geoscience outreach to stakeholders ranging from professional colleagues and academia to the general public.
