Cryolithology and Permafrost Studies, Sachs River Lowlands and Sachs Harbour Vicinity
Principal Investigator: French, Hugh
Licenced Year(s): 1997
Summary: The researcher will be studying the cryostructures which occur in perennially frozen, unconsolidated ice rich sediments. This builds upon earlier work in the Sachs Harbour and Sachs River Lowlands undertaken in the period 1970-1985. Will use boat transportation across the Sachs Harbour Bay and possibly towards Cape Kellett. The 1997 work will be a reconnaissance visit. This work will be continue...


Pleistocene sand wedges and thermal contraction cracks on Richards Island
Principal Investigator: French, Hugh
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: My research is about cracks in permafrost that have been filled in with wind-blown sand. In cliffs, these filled-in crackes appear as `veins' of sand. I will record the distribution and characteristics of these veins of sand. This information may help to determine the history behind how the cracks formed and the environmental conditions of the Mackenzie Delta up to 40,000 years ago....
