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....


Paleontological Collecting and Stratigraphic Studies, Cornwallis and Ellesmere Islands
Principal Investigator: Melchin, Michael J.
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991 1990 1988
Summary: The researcher will study the distribution of graptolite and what it reveals about the timing of geologic events and ancient geographic distributions. Study will also be continued on the geographic and ecological distribution of particular graptolite species between the deeper-water sediments of the Hazen Formation and the shallower-water strata of the Cape Phillips Formation....
