Principal Investigator:Marschner, Mark Licenced Year(s):
This study aims to better understand the formation of "calcrete" deposits, using field samples from the Campbell Uplift. Field sampling will be carried out daily using ground transportation to and from a base in Inuvik. Initial activities will include...
Principal Investigator:MacNeil, Alex Licenced Year(s):
The purpose of this study (2003 component) is to examine the fossilized types of corals that are found in the regional geological formations. Locally these corals coalesced to form mini-reefs, with interesting ecological characteristics. From the study...

The objective of this project is to observe and collect rock specimens from limestone outcrop sites. These samples will be used to interpret groundwater flow systems that occurred in the Arctic in the past when the climate was much warmer. Several sites will be visited for the purpose of examining and collecting rock specimens along the Dempster highway south of Inuvik. Two day trips west of Akla...
Principal Investigator:Gulley, Angela L. Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher will continue a project begun in 1991 which included mapping the local geology adjacent to the hotsprings, conducting a geochemical analysis of the springwaters, monitoring the physical properties, calculating natural discharge rates and conducting a pumping test and monitoring of depositional rates of tufa accumulations....
Principal Investigator:Tsui, Po Chow Wilson Licenced Year(s):
To undertake a study of the formation of a particular series of rocks, (dolomitic rocks of the Devonian Keg River Formation). Samples will be collected for future lab analysis and stratigraphic (layering) sections will be measured....
