Reconnaissance of the East Channel of the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Brooks, Greg
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: If an oil and gas pipeline is constructed that extends from the Mackenzie Delta to the south, the pipeline will likely cross the East Channel at either Lousy or Swimming Points. Both of these sites have been studied in the past, but little detailed information has been collected on the physical features of these sites. Data will be collected on the features of these sites, including a survey of ...

Freezing history and depositional setting of massive ground ice in the Canadian High Arctic
Principal Investigator: Bell, Trevor
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1990 1988
Summary: This study will provide a better understanding of permafrost conditions in the high arctic as well as the environmental conditions that lead to permafrost formation. Study sites include the Fosheim Peninsula on Ellesmere Island and May Point and Mokka Fiord on eastern Axel Heiberg Island....

Impact of climatic change on earth surface processes, Fosheim Peninsula, Ellesmere Island
Principal Investigator: Lewkowicz, Antoni G
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990 1988 1987
Summary: The aim of this ongoing research is to establish links between climate and the movements of soil. By collecting this type of data, it may be possible to determine the effect that climate changes may have on the movements of soil down slopes, into rivers and eventually into the sea....

Contemporary channel characteristics and behaviour along the lower reaches of major tributaries of the Mackenzie River (from Norman Wells to the Mackenzie Delta)
Principal Investigator: Brooks, Greg
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: The research will provide basic information on the characteristics of the rivers and valleys that are major tributaries emptying into the Mackenzie River. The tributaries to be studied include the Carcajou, Mountain, Hume, Ramparts, Hare Indian, Ontaratue, Arctic Red and Peel Rivers. Little is known about the lower 5-7 km portion of these rivers. The information collected will include both aeri...

Geology of High Lake Greenstone Belt
Principal Investigator: Henderson, J.R.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: This year's field work will complete the geological mapping exercise that was started in 1992. The researcher will document, measure and collect various types of rocks found in the area in order to determine the distribution of the various rock types and to under- stand how they originally formed. Most of these rocks are among the oldest known in Canada, with some being over 2.5 billion years ol...

Coastal and Nearshore Sediment Dynamics Atkinson Point Area, Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula, NWT
Principal Investigator: Hequette, Arnaud
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1991
Summary: The researcher and his team will survey beach profiles using an electronic level, survey shallow lagoons and nearshore zones, collect nearshore sediment samples and deploy current meters in the nearshore zone and in a shallow lagoon....

Early Quaternary and Late Tertiary Geology and Geomorphology, Arctic Islands.
Principal Investigator: Fyles, John G.
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The researcher will revisit the "beaver peat" locality and will measure, describe, photograph and sample the exposed peaty material in greater detail than before. A detailed search will be made for fossil bones and beaver-gnawed sticks, as well as for additional fossils. Other sites where similar substrates containing fossil wood or other plant materials will also be visited (or revisited)....

Distribution and Genesis of Karst Landforms in the Northern Mackenzie Mountains, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Hamilton, James P.
Licenced Year(s): 1991
Summary: Karst landscapes are landforms developed on carbonate rocks in humid and temperate climates and are relatively rare in permafrost areas. The Researcher and team will focus on understanding how Karst has and is developing in the Northern Mackenzie Mountains. This will be done by identifying karst forms and examining how water moves in these environments....

Quaternary Geology, West-Central Axel Heiberg Island
Principal Investigator: Lemmen, Donald
Licenced Year(s): 1991
Summary: The Researcher will map, describe, explain the surficial deposits and geomorphology and study glacial history and relative sea level changes. This will involve mapping and surveying as well as the collection of small samples for sedimentological, geochemical and paleoecological analysis....

Principal Investigator: Hankinson, Flt. LT. K.W.
Licenced Year(s): 1991 1988
Summary: Multi-disciplinary research will be undertaken in botany, geology, micro meteorology, soil science, remote sensing, breeding biology of Arctic char and archaeological survey. These studies are a continuation of those begun in 1988....
