March/April Cover Photo: Carbonate weathering – Kananaskis. Flat-lying Mississippian carbonates outcrop downstream of Elbow Falls on the braided Elbow River, Kananaskis Country, Alberta. Cherty layers have resisted erosion and form a sculpted relief on the upper surface with a colour distinction between this white resistant caprock and the blue-gray soft and channeled limestone beneath. These carbonates were likely subjected to subsurface karstification prior to their exposure at the surface. Erosional topography is approx. 3-5 m. Photo: John Andersen
