Prospecting for Earth’s oldest rocks using geochemical signatures of Pleistocene glacial sediments
Principal Investigator: Bilak, Grayson S
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: For this research the Principal Investigator (PI) propses an innovative combination of quaternary geology, isotope geochemistry, and Precambrian geochronology that will identity previously unmapped outcrops of ancient continental crust in the Acasta Gneiss Complex (AGC). An age range and bedrock composition will be generated for the research area and used to help further the understanding of the p...

Timing of glaciation and uplift of the Richardson Mountains and connection to Old Crow basin, northern Yukon
Principal Investigator: Froese, Duane G
Licenced Year(s): 2010
Summary: The objectives of this study are to observe and document sediments exposed along the upper Rat River, also to collect samples of sediments for potential radiocarbon dating. Researchers will fly into area via helicopter from Old Crow. Where possible the helicopter will land adjacent to river escarpments for access to large river bars or wide banks. Researchers will climb up banks to observe sedi...

Massive Ice Study in Granular Deposits
Principal Investigator: Pollard, Wayne H
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: Sand, gravel and crushed stone are valuable geological resources, collectively known as aggregates. They are essential bed, foundation and building materials. The presence of massive ice in aggregate deposits results in a series of resource management problems, particularly for the oil industry and its contractors who rely on local granular deposits as building material. From an environmental pers...

Hazards, Sea-level Rise, and Climate Change Impacts on Arctic Coasts
Principal Investigator: Forbes, Donald L
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The primary objectives of the project are to; 1) monitor coastal stability and the processes which affect it (winds, waves, sea ice, etc); 2) map coastal features, sediment properties, and ice conditions in the nearshore regions of the Mackenzie Delta an...

Taltson Hydro Project; Expansion Baseline Studies and Water Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Uren, Shane
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: The Expansion Project proposes to supply power to the Snap Lake, Gahcho Kue, Diavik and EKATI mine sites by expanding the existing infrastructure at the facilities on the Taltson River at Twin Gorges and at Nonacho Lake. Studies characterizing baseline e...

Sedimentary architecture of Neoproterozoic sandstones of the Katherine Group
Principal Investigator: Long, Darrel G.F.
Licenced Year(s): 1997
Summary: During the summer of 1997, the researchers will visit several cliff exposures of sandstone in the Mackenzie Mountains in the Carcajou Canyon (NTS 96D) and Wrigley Lake (NTS 95M) map areas, south of Norman Wells and west of Tulita, in order to obtain information on the shape of structures preserved in sandstones deposited by ancient rivers. By determining the geometry of these sandstone bodies it ...

Stratigraphy and Sedimentology of Carboniferous to Triassic Strata
Principal Investigator: Dixon, James
Licenced Year(s): 1996 1994 1993 1992 1991
Summary: The research will involve measuring the thickness of the rocks, identify the rock types, observe the structures within the rocks and collect samples for additional laboratory analyses. Most of the work will be conducted using helicopter support out of Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk, visiting the sites on a daily basis. If some sites require more than one day's work I will set up a small two-man camp for t...

Investigation of ground ice development in sediments of the Mackenzie Delta area
Principal Investigator: Burn, Chris R
Licenced Year(s): 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991
Summary: The researcher will continue to collect samples of ground ice and measure temperatures in lakes and ponds. This information is used to help understand how the ground heaves as it freezes in winter, and to determine the extent of soil settlement during thaw in summer. The information about lakes is used to help understand the relations between water depths and temperatures beneath the lake....

Granular deposits and their geological constraints: Northern Richards Island
Principal Investigator: Traynor, Stephen
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: The researchers will visit the site in order to determine the locations and type of granular sources. Field work will involve the collection of some samples of surface sediments and a comparison of the land features with those found in air photographs of the same area. A report will be prepared for DIAND on the availability of possible granular sources as well as a summary of previous studies do...

The application of Landsat imagery to map surficial deposits on Akpatok Island
Principal Investigator: LAURIOL, Bernard
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: The researchers will map the types of rock and landforms of Akpatok Island using information collected from air photographs as well as data collected during the site visit. Samples of rock will be collected for further analysis. Interpretation of this information may provide clues as to the island's long-term history....
