Teleseismic Studies in the Lac de Gras Area
Principal Investigator: Snyder, David B
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2003 2000 1999
Summary: The purpose of this study is to investigate the structure and composition of the Earth's crust and upper mantle to depths of 0 - 200km from sites in the Lac de Gras area. Seismometers will be deployed within two existent mine camps for at least one year. These sensors will record distant earthquakes. Well established technology will be used and once deployed, the instruments will require only lim...


Magnetotelluric survey in northern British Columbia and the Yukon
Principal Investigator: Jones, Alan
Licenced Year(s): 1999
Summary: The objective of the study is to investigate the structure and composition of the earth's crust and upper mantle to depths greater than 60 km in northern British Columbia, NWT and BC. At eight locations along NWT hwy. 7, sensors will be lowered into small (1 m long x 25 cm wide x 25cm deep) holes dug in the ground . These sensors will measure the time variations of the Earth's natural electrical ...


Magnetotelluric Studies along the Lupin Mine winter road - Phase II
Principal Investigator: Jones, Alan
Licenced Year(s): 1999 1998
Summary: The objective of the study is to investigate the structure and composition of the earth's crust and upper mantle to depths greater than 200km along the Lupin Mine winter road east from Yellowknife to Contwoyto Lake. At approximately 20-25 locations along the 600 km winter road, sensors will be lowered through small holes drilled through the ice onto lake bottoms. These sensors will measure the tim...


Deep Electromagnetic Studies of the Oldest Archean Craton: A Contribution to the Lithoprobe SNORCLE Transect
Principal Investigator: Jones, Alan
Licenced Year(s): 1998
Summary: Using passive, electromagnetic instrumentation designed and developed for use on the ocean bottom, we will make measurements of the time-varying electromagnet fields caused by the northern lights at 10 lakes, 3 in Nunavut, in the Slave craton. At each lake an instrument will be deployed from a Turbo Beaver float plane and the instrument will drop to the bottom of the lake and start to make recordi...


Geology and Structure of Prince Patrick and Adjacent Islands
Principal Investigator: Harrison, J. Christopher
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991
Summary: The Researcher will continue a project to define the nature of the solid earth that makes up the bedrock beneath the Arctic Islands. This involves the examination of existing maps and air-photographs, the identification of rock types in the field, the measurement of the orientation of rock layers and similar features with a surveyor's hand-held compass and the collection of small samples for addit...


Licence #2314
Principal Investigator: Young, G.M.
Licenced Year(s): 1978
Summary: A study of Precambrian rocks to provide evidence of the earths magnetic field direction in very early times....
