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....

Eastern arctic climate of the past 2000 years: the Varved Lake sediment record
Principal Investigator: Overpeck, Jonathan
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1991 1989
Summary: The goal of our ongoing project is to collect samples of mud from the bottom of several undisturbed lakes on southern Baffin Island. In the laboratory, we will then examine the chemistry, texture and fossils found in this mud in an effort to document how the environment (mainly climate) of this region has changed over the past 2000 years. We hope that this work will eventually aid efforts to imp...

Paleoclimatic Significance of Laminated Lake Sediments from the Canadian High Arctic
Principal Investigator: Retelle, Michael J.
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The researchers will attempt to reconstruct climate and past environmental conditions through recovery and study of sediment cores from lakes at Taconite Inlet, northern Ellesmere Island. They will also monitor conditions under which the lake sediments are presently accumulating....

Long-term Stability of Arctic Island "Oases"
Principal Investigator: Gajewski, Konrad
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2004 2001 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: This study will investigate the long-term stability of the arctic "oases" of Polar Bear Pass and Hot Weather Creek by the pollen analyses of lake sediment cores. The sediment that accumulates in the bottom of lakes provides a history of the conditions in the lake. The pollen incorporated in the sediment can be interpreted to give an idea of the climate and vegetation for the past several thousand ...

Early Quaternary and Late Tertiary Geology and Geomorphology, Arctic Islands
Principal Investigator: Fyles, John G.
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991 1990
Summary: On Melville and Bathurst Islands, the Researchers will locate and describe the occurrence of high-level gravels and sands, record evidence of the flow-direction of the rivers in which they originated and search for plant and insect fossils that may provide clues about the age of these deposits and about the climate and environment at that time....

Mesoscale climates and paleoclimates in Baffin Island
Principal Investigator: Jacobs, John D.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990 1988 1987
Summary: Dr. Jacobs is returning with his students to continue his investigation of changes in climate and environment over the last 8000 years....

Paleoenvironment of Truelove Lowland area, Devon Island
Principal Investigator: King, Roger H.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1992 1991 1990 1988
Summary: This is the fourth year that Dr. King and his students will be working in the Truelove Lowland area of Devon Island. They are extracting columns of soil and rock to investigate how the climate has changed since long ago....

Licence #4066
Principal Investigator: Jacobs, John D.
Licenced Year(s): 1984
Summary: To carry out micrometeoroligical measurements, mapping, and collection of lake sediments, soils, and plants for analysis. The object is to describe the sequence of post-glacial climate, vegetation, and environmental change....

Licence #2756
Principal Investigator: Jacobs, John D.
Licenced Year(s): 1982
Summary: To undertake field mapping, collect meteorological measurements as well as soil and sediment samples for latter use to analyze for post-glacial climate and environmental change....

Licence #2690
Principal Investigator: Stewart, Thomas G.
Licenced Year(s): 1981
Summary: To continue a study of recent glacial, river and marine sediments (fossils) and deposits to develop a record of the recent environments (climates)....
