Environmental change at Duck Hawk Bluffs, SW Banks Island: from a forested to glaciated Arctic
Principal Investigator: England, John H
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: The research team proposes to revisit Duck Hawk Bluffs (DHB), southwest Banks Island, the “type section” for the formerly reported subsurface record. DHB offers an exceptional exposure along the north shore of Thesiger Bay, measuring 8 km long and up to 60 m high. Previous work assumed that the bluffs were composed of an undeformed “layer-cake” stratigraphy recording discrete depositional events ...


Past glaciation, landscape evolution and climatic change in the Canadian High Arctic
Principal Investigator: England, John H
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1990
Summary: The effects of glaciation on the arctic landscape remain uncertain and much more mapping and field studies remain to be done. Although it is commonly assumed that global warming will lead to the melting of glaciers, this view ignores the more important role that snowfall plays in the growth of glaciers (i.e., warmer climate leads to increased snowfall and a growth in glaciers). This study will e...


To map the surficial goelogy and the reconstruction of the late Quaternary history of Greely Fiord, north Central Ellesmere Island.
Principal Investigator: England, John H
Licenced Year(s): 1987
Summary: To complete basic surveying and mapping techniques around Cape Lockwood, Greely Fiord and the eastern coast of adjoining Canan Fiord, to asess the extent and timing of past glaciations in this area and their associated sea level adjustments. To collect fossil shells and driftwood for radiocarbon dating....
