Marine Geohazard and Environmental Studies in the Southern Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, Scott R
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The research goals are to ascertain the formation of marine pock marks, which are circular depressions on the sea floor thought to have formed from the release of methane gas. The hypothesis is that these features are actively releasing gas to the atmosphere and that they are formed from the release of methane from degrading or thawing offshore permafrost. The research team intend to document the ...


Marine Geohazard Studies in the Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, Scott R
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: This research will take place onboard the Canadian Coast Guard Service icebreaker Sir Wilfrid Laurier during its annual multi-tasked Arctic Patrol that traverses the Canadian western Arctic. The research shares the logistics with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada researcher Dr. Humfrey Melling. This work builds on marine research expeditions onboard the Laurier in 2010, 2012 and 2013. ...


Terrestrial geoscience studies of earthquake (seismic) hazard in the Mackenzie-Beaufort area
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, Scott R
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2014
Summary: Industry and regulators require information on seismicity and its effect on engineering structures both at a regional and local scale. The primary source of this information is the National Building Code of Canada’s Seismic Hazard Value map. Ongoing work undertaken as part of the 2015 revision of this map suggests that an increased seismic (earthquake) hazard exists in the Mackenzie-Beaufort area....


Mackenzie Delta shallow gas and permafrost studies
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, Scott R
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2004
Summary: Field research for 2009 will concentrate on three tasks: 1) Continued characterization of three of the larger gas seeps observed and reported by the National Energy Board, GSC and Inuvialuit; 2) Identification of additional seeps in the region through aerial surveys; and 3) investigation of permafrost anomalies and the development of taliks as a mechanism for the development of pathways for the g...


Gas Hydrate Research studies related to drilling of a Gas Hydrate Exploration Well at Mallik L-38, Mackenzie Delta, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, Scott R
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2002 1998
Summary: Field activities for this project will be covered under various permits being applied for the engineering operations. Scientific studies being conducted as part of this research will be mainly laboratory oriented to research on the geology, geochemistry, permafrost and gas hydrate properties of drill cores, interpretation of geophysical data and other fundamental research. The Geological Survey of...


Ground ice studies of the Tuktoyaktuk coastlands
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, Scott R
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1993 1992 1992 1991
Summary: Measurements of slope and ground temperature will be collected at three sites located east of Tuktoyaktuk and on northern Richards Island. Selection of the sites will be determined in the field but are expected to be at a location south of Gruben's fish camp in Eskimo Lakes and at the west end of Richards Island at North Head....
