Quaternary History of the Summer Island area, Tuktoyaktuk Coastlands
Principal Investigator: Murton, Julian B
Licenced Year(s): 2008
Summary: The objective this geological research is to reconstruct climate and environmental history of Richards Island before the last ice age using sediment and peat samples. Fieldwork around the Mason Bay camp will be carried out on foot and a small boat along the coastal bluffs in Summer Island, Richards Island and Hadwen Island. Fieldwork will be carried out by clearing slumped sand from coastal bluff...


Environmental Change in the Western Canadian Arctic Islands
Principal Investigator: England, John H
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: The researchers aim to understand and reconstruct the extent and dynamics of past glaciers, past climates and ongoing sea level change, including submergence, on Banks and Prince Patrick Islands, through geological mapping and the dating of sea shells, sediment and boulders. High latitude areas such as the Canadian High Arctic provide diverse records of past global changes and they are generall...


Role of Climate and Sea Change on Early Cambrian Evolution
Principal Investigator: Pope, Michael
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The research team will fly to Norman Wells by commercial airline, and then travel to the field by helicopter or Twin Otter. Travel in the field will be by canoe, or on foot. Field camps will be low impact, and will be occupied for less than 14 days. All human waste will be buried, and all non-burnable garbage will be packed out. The research team will measure, describe and sample the Early Camb...


Neoproterozoic Keele Formation, Mackenzie Mountains, NWT and its relation to to major Late Proterozoic glaciations.
Principal Investigator: Day, Edith
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: The research team will be flown from Norman Wells to the base camp at Moose Horn River by helicopter. Moves to fly camps (Stoneknife River and Black Wolf Creek) will also be made by helicopter. The camp will consist of one sleeping tent per team member and one cooking tent. The research team will walk to data collection sites on foot. Data collection will consist of measuring rocks with a rule...


Stratigraphy and sedimentology of the Little Dal Formation, NWT, Canada.
Principal Investigator: Batten, Kelly
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: The research team will be flown from Norman Wells to the base camp at Haycook Lake by float plane. Moves to fly camps will be made by helicopter. The camp will consist of one sleeping tent per team member and one cooking tent. The research team will walk to data collection sites on foot. Data collection will consist of measuring rocks with a ruler, taking photographs, and collecting up to 50 s...


Geophysical and geochemical investigations of massive ground ice
Principal Investigator: Moorman, Brian J
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993
Summary: The researchers will conduct 2 types of surveys: (1) radar surveys will be conducted using a portable radar unit; and (2) small samples of ice from glaciers and moraines will be collected in order to conduct analysis which will determine the chemical make-up of the ice. This information will be used to determine characteristics about the glaciers as well as help in our understanding of the climat...


A late Cretaceous and Paleogene arctic paleoclimate record: the sedimentary sequence at Strand Fiord, Axel Heiberg Island, NWT
Principal Investigator: Tarduno, John A.
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: For much of the Earth's history, the arctic has had a mild climate, quite unlike the conditions that now exist. Evidence that supports this past climate are fossil plants and animals (including crocodiles and tortoises) found in the arctic. The Earth's magnetic field has changed over time and these changes are contained in the fossils. This research will try develop a technique to age these fos...


Freezing history and depositional setting of massive ground ice in the Canadian High Arctic
Principal Investigator: Bell, Trevor
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1990 1988
Summary: This study will provide a better understanding of permafrost conditions in the high arctic as well as the environmental conditions that lead to permafrost formation. Study sites include the Fosheim Peninsula on Ellesmere Island and May Point and Mokka Fiord on eastern Axel Heiberg Island....


Late Quaternary glacial and climate history on Baffin Island, NWT
Principal Investigator: Miller, Gifford H.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1991 1990 1989 1987
Summary: The arctic has an effect on the climate experienced in the rest of the world. We are attempting to understand how climate and the growth (movements) of glaciers influence each other, both in the present and during the last 20,000 years. We will be taking samples of sediments from the bottoms of lakes as these sediments contain information about changes in climate....


Upper Silurian reef mounds at the Douro-Devon Island formational boundary, Devon and southwestern Ellesmere Islands
Principal Investigator: Dixon, O.A.
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1990 1988
Summary: In the Arctic Islands, we are studying rocks and the fossils found within these rocks that were formed more than 400 million years ago in warm tropical seas. This study is expected to help in describing the temperatures, climate and water depths of these ancient seas. We are also studying the types of fossil corals and sponge-like animals that are not present in our seas today....
