Neoproterozoic stratigraphy, Mackenzie Mountains
Principal Investigator: Turner, Elizabeth C
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: This continuing research addresses the history of Earth-surface environments between about 1 billion and 700 million years ago. The objective for 2017 is to complete the sample suite being used by a PhD student (most of the required samples are already in-hand). A base-camp of two people will be deployed by helicopter, and all work done on foot. Working on mountainside rock exposures, the resea...


Early Paleozoic Earth-surface environments in NWT
Principal Investigator: Turner, Elizabeth C
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The research proposed here is part of a long-term project aimed at understanding the distribution of marine environments in northwestern and northern Canada between 540 and 450 million years ago. The research team will measure, describe, and sample rock layers that are of roughly the same age but in different locations to see how ancient Earth-surface environments varied geographically about 54...


Stratigraphy of the Hyland Group, Selwyn Mountains
Principal Investigator: Turner, Elizabeth C
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: This project seeks to understand the ancient marine environments recorded in these rocks, and thereby to interpret this poorly known, dramatic time in North America’s tectonic evolution. The areas addressed will be those that were briefly described in 1993: 1 location is in Yukon Territory (YT) and 2 are in Northwest Territories (NWT). This work will complement licensed research currently under wa...


Stratigraphy of the Misty Creek Embayment
Principal Investigator: Turner, Elizabeth C
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: This is a Masters of Science research project aimed at understanding the geological evolution of a deep-marine environment that existed in the northern Mackenzie Mountains between 500 and 450 million years ago. This project team will establish small 2-3 person camps on or near a mountainside which is already known, based on previous work, that the rocks they are interested in will be exposed. E...


Paleontology and sedimentology of Late Proterozoic Little Dal Reefs, Mackenzie Mountains, NWT.
Principal Investigator: Turner, Elizabeth C
Licenced Year(s): 2001 1999 1998 1996 1994 1992 1991 1989 1988
Summary: Two people will be transported to the field sites via helicopter from Norman Wells. All ground work is done on foot. Data collection involves photography of rock outcrops, measurement of stratigraphic sections using a tape measure, description of outcrops, and selective sampling of about 100 fist-sized rock samples using a geological hammer....
