Uplift history of Fort Liard area
Principal Investigator: McMechan, Margot
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: To determine any north south changes in the uplift history of the Fort Liard area. The research team will hike/walk to the outcrop. The team will use a 3 pound sledge hammer and rock hammer to collect hand-sized samples of rock from loose and fallen pieces. The time spent at the outcrop is about 2 hours then the team will return via foot. After, the field work samples will be sent to labs where...

Geological Mapping, Stratigraphic and Structural Analysis in the Aklavik Range and Adjacent Parts of the Northern Richardson Mountains.
Principal Investigator: Lane, Larry S
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: The research team proposes three activities. Geological mapping at a 1:50,000 scale, carried out by the Geological Survey of Canada, will provide an updated and detailed geological map of the Aklavik Range, which was previously mapped at reconnaissance scale in the 1960's and 70's. Stratigraphic studies will consist of detailed measurement and description of specific rock units of Jurassic and Cr...

Collection of Silurian fishes and trilobites and articulated remains of Devonian chondrichthyans and other fishes from the Mackenzie Mountains, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Wilson, Mark V.H.
Licenced Year(s): 2013 1998 1996 1990
Summary: The objectives of the research are 1) to collect remains of Silurian and Devonian fishes, and 2) to collect remains of Silurian trilobites. Activities are limited to travel, residence at camp locations and collection of fossils. Helicopters will be used to access camp sites. We plan to land at Avalanche Lake on July 15, spending 6 days collecting fossils at Avalanche Lake, followed by one day of t...

Thematic Structural, Stratigraphic and Geochronological Studies of the Slave Structural Province.
Principal Investigator: Bleeker, Wouter
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994
Summary: Map and describe the various rock types and assess their role in the complex geological history of the Slave Province. Fly-in / fly-out camps with small float planes to make daily traverses by foot or by boat to study the local rocks and collect small handsamples for laboratory work....

Detailed bedrock mapping in the Indin Lake area
Principal Investigator: Pehrsson, Sally J
Licenced Year(s): 1996 1995 1994
Summary: This will be the researcher's concluding summer for this project. The detailed mapping data (structural, petrological) in combination with the geochemical and geochronological sampling will be accomplished by foot and boat traverses with occasional fixed and rotary wing support. All data will be entered digitally for computer map compilation....

Taxonomic and Biostratigraphic Studies of Silurian (about 400,000,000 years ago) Graptolites (extinct organisms) and Radiolaria (micro-organisms) of Central Arctic Islands.
Principal Investigator: Lenz, Alfred C.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990 1989 1988
Summary: The researchers will collect samples of shales and limestone at regular intervals (usually about every 1 metre or less). Samples of rock of up to 1-2 kg are collected from each horizon. Samples will be bagged and shipped back to the university for further study. This study will help researchers better understand the geological history of the Arctic....

The Dubawnt Super Group
Principal Investigator: Peterson, Tony D.
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: Collection of rock samples and subsequent study by examination of thin sections, geochemical analyses, and geological mapping. Work in the field is conducted by boat and foot traversing with some support by aircraft. This will be done in order to determine the geological history of Archean crystalline rocks....

Detailed Bedrock Mapping in the Winter Lake Supracrustal Belt
Principal Investigator: Hrabi, Blair
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: This will be the final summer of field work for this project. The detailed mapping data in combination with geochemistry will enable the researcher to gie a detailed geological history of the area, including timing of certain geological events (age of volcanism and granite plutons) as well as a deformational history....

Carbonate precipitation in the Mesproterozoic Society Cliffs Formation, Bylot Supergroup, on northern Baffin Island
Principal Investigator: Kah, Linda
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993
Summary: Characteristics of ancient sediments reveal information about the chemical, biological and physical environment within which these sediments were formed. By studying the patterns of rocks found in the north Baffin area, I hope to discover how much of the formation of these rocks was due to the algae that lived in ancient oceans, and how much was due to the chemical makeup of the water. The resea...

Thermal and tectonic history of the Sverdrup Basin and Franklinian Mobile Belt, Canadian Arctic Archipelago
Principal Investigator: Arne, Dennis C.
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: Rock samples will be collected in order to examine their structure and composition. Tests conducted on these samples will provide information about how these rocks were formed and the maximum temperatures to which these rocks were heated. These tests, conducted at Dalhousie University, will help to determine the geological history of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago....
