Principal Investigator:Pratt, Brian R. Licenced Year(s):
The researcher will study trilobite fossil communities that exsisted in the Cambrian Period. Study of these fossils will help in more precisely dating the rocks laid down by this sea. The researcher will also prepare a biostratigraphic zonation....
Principal Investigator:Lenz, Alfred C. Licenced Year(s):
The researchers will collect samples of shales and limestone at regular intervals (usually about every 1 metre or less). Samples of rock of up to 1-2 kg are collected from each horizon. Samples will be bagged and shipped back to the university for further study. This study will help researchers better understand the geological history of the Arctic....
Principal Investigator:Gagnier, Pierre-Yves Licenced Year(s):
The collect on the field of paleontological sample is done like geographical sampling by breaking rock with a hammer. Once collect, the micro-remains of vertebrate fossils are extracted with acid preparation in laboratories. Carbonate rocks processed with acetic (vinegar) or formic acid. Rocks with siliceous matrix are generally processed by dissolution of the bone with chloridric acid. Biostrat...
Principal Investigator:Pedder, Alan E.H. Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher will collect 1/2 to 2 kilogram samples of limestone. These are sent to a lab for processing which leaves small fossils of calcium phosphate. These are studied to determine their age and the conditions of the life of the fossils....
Principal Investigator:Burden, Elliott Licenced Year(s):19911990
To continue developing comparative models for palynomorph dispersal and biostratigraphy in strata on the flanks of rifted and subsiding basins by mapping the strata of Eclipse Trough, Bylot Island...
Principal Investigator:Zinsmeister, William J. Licenced Year(s):
To determine: (1) the composition of the marine invertebrate faunas of the Eureka Sound Formation; (2) the stratigraphic distribution of individual taxa so that a biostratigraphic zonation could be established; (3) the biogeographic relationships of the faunas of the Eureka Sound Formation with temporal faunas of the North Atlantic....
Principal Investigator:Dawson, Mary R. Licenced Year(s):
To explore for fossil vertebrate in Cenozoic rocks of Ellesmere, Axel Heiberg and Devon islands, in hopes of expanding the record of terrestrial vertebrates known fromhigh latitudes; to find vertebrates older and younger than those previously found as well as to explore for fossil vertebrates in the Geodetic Hills area of eastern Axel Heiberg Island, in an attempt to date the unaltered fossil wood...
Principal Investigator:Elliott, D.K. Licenced Year(s):
Biostratigraphic sections will be taken through the Peel Sound and Somerset Island formations on Somerset Island to increase knowledge of the relationship between the arctic Paleozoic vertebrate faunas and those in western Europe. To collect material and paleoecological data to study the habitats of early vertebrates....
