Heat flow in the trench-arc zone between the continental margin and the Garibaldi volcanic belt is very low, but in the volcanic belt it is high and very Cited by: The Canadian Cordillera, at the approximate latitude of Calgary, is ~ km wide when measured from the margin of the foothills west of Calgary to the base of the continental slope, ~ km west of southern Vancouver Island (Price, ).

The North American Cordillera in Canada and Alaska has been investigated through coincident and coordinated geological, geochemical, and geophysical studies along three corridors: (1) the Lithoprobe Southern Cordillera transect, (2) the ACCRETE and Lithoprobe Slave-Northern Cordillera Lithospheric Evolution (SNORCLE) transects, and (3) the Trans-Alaska Crustal Transect (TACT) program.

The Monashee decollement, a crustal-scale shear zone in the hinterland (Omineca belt) of the southern Canadian Cordillera is interpreted as correlating with the Cited by: The Cordillera is located on the west coast of Canada and includes British Columbia, the Yukon, southwest Alberta and part of North West Territories.

The climate of the Cordillera's coast is mild, wet and rarely has snow that stays. The interior of the Cordillera is usually colder and dryer with larger amounts of snow.
