Central Mixedwood Subregion
Surficial materials in the Central
Mixedwood Subregion are predominantly till as ground moraine
and hummocky moraine landforms with some areas of Aeolian
dunes, sandy outwash plain, and glaciolacustrine
plain. The terrain has low relief and a level to undulating surface. The
Subregion includes much of the central and southeastern part of the Boreal
Forest Natural Region and is the largest Subregion in Alberta.
Highland plateaus and hill masses within the Central Mixedwood Subregion
are mostly placed in other Subregions such as the Boreal
Highlands although similarities are apparent.
