Principal Investigator:Pratt, Brian R. Licenced Year(s):
The principal investigator has been working off and on for many years on the stratigraphy and paleontology of Cambrian strata of the Mackenzie Mountains. This is a critical region of North America because the record of sedimentation on the flank of the continent as it was over half a billion years ago is particularly extensive with little interruption. At the section of interest the lower part of ...

The Cambrian period is an interval of geologic time that is poorly known in arctic Canada. Previous studies have been very basic and almost no fossils have been recovered. Sections of sedimentary rock will be measured in detail, with attention focused on the structure of the sediments as well as the presence of fossils. A map will then be constructed showing the layers in which fossils occur. ...
