Principal Investigator:McIntyre, David J. Licenced Year(s):
The Researchers will collect rock samples for study of fossil algae (dinoflagellates) and will determine the geological age. They will correlate findings with similar material from wells and will determine climate and environment conditions at the time the rocks were deposited....
Principal Investigator:Jette, Helene Licenced Year(s):19951993
The Researchers will collect sediment core samples from up to six lakes. They will be taken to a laboratory where palynological and diatom studies will be conducted....
Principal Investigator:Hills, L.V. Licenced Year(s):1993
The Researchers will determine the timing and depositional environments for the Hassel, Bastion Ridge, Strand Fiord and Kanguk formations....
Principal Investigator:Wolfe, Alexander P. Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher will continue to investigate lakes on the unglaciated terrain of Fosheim Peninsula to determine the former environments of high and low arctic lakes. By analyzing the physical and chemical properties of the sediments, as well as the preserved biological remains within them, the nature and timing of rapid environmental changes at the close of the last glaciation may be explained....
Principal Investigator:Burden, Elliott Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher and associate will collect samples of shale and sandstone from cliffs. They will be taken to Memorial University to be analysed for their remnant magnetization. This research applies in regional correlation studies of marine and terrestrial strata and in site specific studies of the geologic development of this part of the Arctic....
Principal Investigator:Mode, William N. Licenced Year(s):19941993199119901989
To complete surficial geology and vegetation of the south shore of Amadjuak Lake (led by Dr. Jacobs) and to complete palynology and limnology of lakes on southeastern Meta Incognita Peninsula....
Principal Investigator:Short, Susan K. Licenced Year(s):
To analyze changes in the modern and fossil pollen assemblages of the Central Canadian Arctic through the collection and analysis of modern moss samples and peat and lake sections....
Principal Investigator:Davis, P. Thompson Licenced Year(s):
To undertake a study of recent climatic change associated with glacial history of the area. Ancient pollen samples will be collected and studied as well....
