Principal Investigator:French, Hugh Licenced Year(s):
The researcher will be studying the cryostructures which occur in perennially frozen, unconsolidated ice rich sediments. This builds upon earlier work in the Sachs Harbour and Sachs River Lowlands undertaken in the period 1970-1985. Will use boat transportation across the Sachs Harbour Bay and possibly towards Cape Kellett. The 1997 work will be a reconnaissance visit. This work will be continue...

The researcher will continue studies on the origin of permafrost, the ice found within permafrost and processes that help to create the present geocryologic environment. These studies will be conducted on Garry Island, Illisarvik, 20 km southwest of Tuktoyaktuk and at Paulatuk....

The researcher will continue to collect samples of ground ice and measure temperatures in lakes and ponds. This information is used to help understand how the ground heaves as it freezes in winter, and to determine the extent of soil settlement during thaw in summer. The information about lakes is used to help understand the relations between water depths and temperatures beneath the lake....
