Principal Investigator:Harington, C.R. Licenced Year(s):
The researcher will carefully trowel and wet screan a peaty deposit to gather remains of Tertiary vertebrates, plant, and invertebrates remains in the beaver-pond site near Strathcona Fiord. This will be done in an effort to better understand the paleoenviornment and the geological age of the deposit....
Principal Investigator:Scott, David J. Licenced Year(s):
The bedrock geology of this area preserves a record of geological processes which occurred over 2 billion years ago, a collision of the continental margin (including Lake Harbour rocks) with another continental block and this resulted in a mountain belt. The eroded ancient mountain belt (the Lake Harbour rock) will be examined to determine the age of the rock to better understand the continental m...
Principal Investigator:Jackson, G.D. Licenced Year(s):
The first of two field seasons, the project will map and study the bedrock. Of major interest are the nature and origins of the rocks, their structures, economic potential, ages and possible correlations with similar rocks in other regions....
Principal Investigator:Harrison, J. Christopher Licenced Year(s):
A continuing project, the researchers will 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 addi...
Principal Investigator:McIntyre, David J. Licenced Year(s):
The Researchers will collect rock samples for study of fossil algae (dinoflagellates) and will determine the geological age. They will correlate findings with similar material from wells and will determine climate and environment conditions at the time the rocks were deposited....
