Teleseismic investigations of the crust and mantle structure beneath Banks Island, NWT
Principal Investigator: Audet, Pascal
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015
Summary: The goal of this project is to understand the structure and evolution of the crust and mantle beneath Banks Island in the western Arctic by analyzing new seismic data collected from an array of broadband seismic stations. The objective is to provide information on crustal and mantle structures to determine whether Banks Island forms a rifted margin, or forms the northern extension of the Canadian ...


EarthScope Transportable Array
Principal Investigator: Woodward, Robert
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: This project consists of a large deployment of ground motion sensors (290 total) throughout Alaska and western Canada; 44 located in Yukon Territory and 9 in the Northwest Territory. (See www.usarray.org/alaska and the attached map.) Each station senses the ground movement from distant earthquakes and sends data via satellite or radio modem to a central receiving point in San Diego. The purpose...


Yukon-Northwest Seismic Network: Characterizing Earthquakes and Earth Structures
Principal Investigator: Audet, Pascal
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) to improve the detection and characterization of earthquakes occurring within the northern Canadian Cordillera (comprising the Mackenzie and Richardson Mountains) and surrounding areas, which is one the most seismically active areas of Canada; and 2) to study the deep Earth structures to understand the formation and evolution of the Cordillera. To th...


Licence #5136
Principal Investigator: Lambert, Anthony
Licenced Year(s): 1985
Summary: To measure crustal deformation in North America leading to a better understanding of earthquakes and plate tectonics. Measurements will be made by the technique of long-baseline interferometry using a mobile radio telescope. (Continued from last year.)...


Licence #4127
Principal Investigator: Langley, Richard
Licenced Year(s): 1984
Summary: To determine VLBL (Very Long Base Line) interferometry between a number of radio telescopes and to study how, why and where earthquakes occur....
