Principal Investigator:Osinski, Gordon Licenced Year(s):
This project seeks to carry out the first detailed study of the newly discovered Tunnunik impact structure, located on Victoria Island, NWT. The research team will carry out field mapping and conduct gravity, ground magnetic, and seismic surveys, and sample for paleomagnetic studies. They will also ground-truth a remote predictive map generated with Radarsat-2 and other satellite data.
Principal Investigator:Bouchard, Michel A. Licenced Year(s):
The Researchers will study the ejecta which is material formed as a result of the explosive impacting and throw out of rocks at the moment of meteorite impact. They will also investigate the pollen content of the glacial sediments trapped within the crater rim....
Principal Investigator:Francis, Don Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher and his team will carry out fieldwork which includes geological mapping and the collection of approximately 200 fist-sized rock samples for chemical analysis at McGill University. This work is a part of a three year research project which is designed to evaluate the meteoritic origin of the Hudson Bay Arc....
