Principal Investigator:McMechan, Margot Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Lane, Larry S Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Wilson, Mark V.H. Licenced Year(s):2013
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...
Principal Investigator:Bleeker, Wouter Licenced Year(s):20001999
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....
Principal Investigator:Pehrsson, Sally J Licenced Year(s):1996
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....
Principal Investigator:Lenz, Alfred C. Licenced Year(s):
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....
Principal Investigator:Peterson, Tony D. Licenced Year(s):
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....
Principal Investigator:Hrabi, Blair Licenced Year(s):
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....
Principal Investigator:Kah, Linda Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Arne, Dennis C. Licenced Year(s):
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....
