In the previous year, research work were started on some of the new occurrences of 2.9 - 2.6 Ga old banded iron formations in the NWT. This opened an exceptional opportunity to study ocean chemistry directly preceding the Great Oxidization Event (GOE). In this regard, the research group has been engaged with the Northwest Territories Geoscience Office (NTGO) to undertake field and laboratory studi...

This study looks at aspects of the earth's history. The Ice Brook Formation in the Mackenzie Mountains and the Sheepbed formation are rock units that will be studied. Members of the field party will be transported to base camps by helicopter and camp moves will be done by helicopter. Ground work is to be done on foot. Data is collected through photography of rock outcrops, measurement of stratigra...

Stromatolites are variously shaped mounds or reefs composed of sediments and the fossilized remains of single-celled marine organisms called blue-green algae. There are massive fossil reefs located on Baffin Island which are some of the largest known of their age. By studying the structure, form and chemical make-up of these reefs, information about the ancient ocean and the growth of ancient re...

Initiated in 1989, the aim of the project is to estimate how important is the ocean as a source of organic bromine to the Arctic atmosphere, and secondarily to further our knowledge of the origin of a range of halocarbons in the ocean....
Principal Investigator:Melling, Humfrey Licenced Year(s):
To improve understanding of the role which wintertime freezing over the Mackenzie Shelf of the Beaufort Sea plays in maintaining the peculiar cold halocline of the Arctic Ocean...
Principal Investigator:Perkin, Ron G. Licenced Year(s):
To begin monitoring of the temperature and salinity of upper layers of the Arctic Ocean using a self recording package with conductivity and temperature sensors suspended under the ice....
