Locat A, Demers D, Locat P, Geertsema M The Rocky Mountains, are a well known mountain range in British Columbia, and are most commonly associated with the Canadian Cordillera. They are the largest mountain range in North America, extending from the Liard River Basin in north-eastern British Columbia, through British Columbia, and deep into New Mexico in the United States (Robinson, J.

    Quaternary Geology of the Canadian Cordillera.” In R.J. Fulton (ed.) Quaternary Geology of Canada and Greenland. Geological Society of Canada, Geology of Canada, no. 1. This book is the last of three volumes in which the recent knowledge of the extent and chronology of Quaternary glaciations has been compiled on a global scale. This information is seen as a fundamental requirement, not only for the glacial community, but for the wider user-community of general Quaternary workers. In particular the need for accurate ice-front positions is a basic requirement.
