Past glaciation, landscape evolution and climatic change in the Canadian High Arctic
Principal Investigator: England, John H
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1990
Summary: The effects of glaciation on the arctic landscape remain uncertain and much more mapping and field studies remain to be done. Although it is commonly assumed that global warming will lead to the melting of glaciers, this view ignores the more important role that snowfall plays in the growth of glaciers (i.e., warmer climate leads to increased snowfall and a growth in glaciers). This study will e...


Palsa Evolution in Alpine Tundra (PEAT)
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 1992
Summary: The researcher and his team will determine the current status and contemporary characteristics of palsas (frozen peat mounds), and their environments within this mountainous study area. As well, they will quanititatively describe the processes affecting the evolution of these periglacial features and the potential changes in the status of these and related forms under global change models....


Slave Province NATMAP
Principal Investigator: King, Janet E.
Licenced Year(s): 1992
Summary: Mapping of bedrock and surfical geology will be conducted in numerous parts of the geologic Slave Province. Specific studies of the bedrock, such as its stratigraphy, the nature of the granitic rocks, how the rocks deformed and metamorphosed, and isotopic dating will provide insight on the geologic evolution of this part (Slave Province) of the Canadian Sheild....


Regional Geological Mapping of the Winter Lake and Lac de Gras Map Area, District of Mackenzie, NWT
Principal Investigator: Thompson, Peter H.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1992
Summary: Using a combination of regional bedrock mapping, detailed mapping, and special studies in the fields of petrology, structural geology, geochronology, geophysics, metallogeny and surficial geology, the research will determine the origin, evolution and economic potential of part of the Slave Structural Province, Canadian Shield....


Geomorphological and Hydrological Research on Valley Formation in Arctic and Subarctic Environments
Principal Investigator: Schunke, Ekkehard
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1994 1992 1990
Summary: The Researchers will continue work licenced in 1990 (Licence Number: 10017). They will make observations and measurements of surface forms and surface processes during snow-melt....


Stratigraphy of Early Paleozoic Sequences on Devon Island
Principal Investigator: Long, Darrel G.F.
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: This research represents a continuation of work carried out in 1985 on northern Ellesmere Island. The 1992 fieldwork will examine Lower Cambrian to Middle Ordovician strata in easter Devon Island....


Geology of Cretaceous and Tertiary Strata, Bylot Island, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Burden, Elliott
Licenced Year(s): 1991 1990 1988 1987
Summary: The Researcher and associate will collect samples of shale and sandstone from cliffs. They will be taken to Memorial University to be analysed for their remnant magnetization. This research applies in regional correlation studies of marine and terrestrial strata and in site specific studies of the geologic development of this part of the Arctic....


Multiyear Study of High-Arctic Periglacial processes and Related Quaternary History
Principal Investigator: Washburn, A.L.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990 1988 1987
Summary: Dr. Washburn and his assistant will continue the investigation into how the landscape has changed since the glaciers left 10,000 years ago. In particular, he is looking at how the effects of frost and permafrost have influenced the changes....


Tectonomagmatic Evolution of the Scerdrup Basin, Canadian Arctic Archipelago
Principal Investigator: Muecke, Gunter K.
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1990 1989
Summary: The Researcher and assistants will investigate the field relations, petrology, mineralogy, geochemistry, and geochronology of magmatic rocks of the northern Canadian Arctic Islands....


Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology of the Fosheim Peninsula, West-Central Ellesmere Island
Principal Investigator: Bell, Trevor
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1990 1988
Summary: This research is an extension of previous fieldwork completed in 1988 and 1989. Mapping surficial deposits and reconstructing former ice limits and sea level adjustments, investigations of landforms and associated sediments, collection and dating of organic material pertaining to terrestrial and raised marine deposits, and mapping distributions of glacial erratics will be undertaken....
