Upper Silurian reef mounds at the Douro-Devon Island formational boundary, Devon and southwestern Ellesmere Islands
Principal Investigator: Dixon, O.A.
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1990 1988
Summary: In the Arctic Islands, we are studying rocks and the fossils found within these rocks that were formed more than 400 million years ago in warm tropical seas. This study is expected to help in describing the temperatures, climate and water depths of these ancient seas. We are also studying the types of fossil corals and sponge-like animals that are not present in our seas today....


Licence #7052
Principal Investigator: Dixon, O.A.
Licenced Year(s): 1987
Summary: To study Lower Paleozoic stratigraphy, sedimentology and geological history in the Canadian Arctic Islands. The specific project planned to begin in 1987 concerns Silurian shelf-margin facies on NW Devon and Ellesmere Islands. The field work planned for 1987 would include measurement of stratigraphic sections and collection of rock and fossil samples for subsequent laboratory study....

Principal Investigator: Dixon, O.A.
Licenced Year(s): 1985
Summary: To carry out a study of Lower Paleozoic stratigraphy and geological history of the Somerset-Cornwallis-Devon Islands region. This would include geological mapping, measurement of stratigraphic sections, and collection of rock and fossil samples for subsequent laboratory study....


Licence #4020
Principal Investigator: Dixon, O.A.
Licenced Year(s): 1984
Summary: To carry out a study of Lower Paleozoic stratigraphy and geological history of the Somerset-Cornwallis- Devon Islands region. This would include geological mapping, measurement of stratigraphic sections, and collection of rock and fossil samples of subsequent laboratory study....


Licence #4019
Principal Investigator: Dixon, O.A.
Licenced Year(s): 1984
Summary: To carry out a combined sedimentological-paleoecological study of surface exposures of the Devonian Ramparts reef complex. This would involve mapping, measurement and description of stratigraphic sections and collection of fossil samples for later laboratory study. This is the conclusion of work begun in 1982....

Licence #2287
Principal Investigator: Dixon, O.A.
Licenced Year(s): 1978
Summary: To obtain further understanding of the geological history of the Somerset-Cornwallis Islands region. Field work includes limited geological mapping, measurement of stratigraphic sections and the collection of rock and fossil specimens for further laboratory and analysis....
