This map shows the thickness and distribution of the Quaternary stratigraphic units in Greater Victoria.   It is intended to provide the geological basis for the assessment of the earthquake hazards shown on companion maps which depict the liquefaction and amplification of ground motion in Greater Victoria (Geoscience Maps 2000-3a and 2000-3b; Monahan et al., 2000b and c).  The geological units shown here are defined in part to reflect these hazards.
