Principal Investigator:Froese, Duane G Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of this research project are to investigate the architecture of Pleistocene deltas on the Mackenzie River tributaries, search evidence of high-magnitude discharge events, and collect samples for absolute dating.
The research team will investigate stratigraphic description of sedimentary sections in the river banks cutting through the Pleistocene deltas. The team will collect samp...
Principal Investigator:LABROUSSE, Loic Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of the CaHiGeo project are to sample paleogene rocks for sedimentological and stratigraphical analysis and dating; to sample the underlying rocks for correlation with equivalent formations in Northern Yukon and dating; and to measure the possible deformation of the paleogene rocks at the inferred location of sealed faults (Eskimo Lake Fault Zone).
The methods used in the field fo...
Principal Investigator:Hodgson, D.A. Licenced Year(s):2003
The objectives are to establish: 1) the end of the last glaciation flows on northwest Victoria Island (roughly 12,000 to 10,000 years ago), by examining the landforms left by the moving ice; 2) the changes with time in the nature of the postglacial raise...
Principal Investigator:Miller, Gifford H. Licenced Year(s):1994
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....
Principal Investigator:Smith, Derald Licenced Year(s):
The Mackenzie River Valley, from Wrigley to Fort Good Hope, will be surveyed in order to document the nature of the river prior to the last glaciation. Sediments will be sampled in order to determine their age (using radiocarbon dating techniques). Field work will take place along the Mackenzie River between Wrigley and the mouth of the Redstone River, in the lower section of Gt. Bear River, and...
Principal Investigator:England, John H Licenced Year(s):1993
Dr. England is continuing a fifteen year study on past glaciations, sea level fluctuations and paleoenvironmental change in the Canadian High Arctic. His work will involve surveying, mapping and collecting samples for radiocarbon dating....
Principal Investigator:Andrews, John T. Licenced Year(s):
Raoul Miller and Mark Adams, two students of Dr. Andrews, will be continuing his work to see how sea level, climate, and vegetation have changed over the years. As in other years, they will be taking samples from the bottom of lakes near Gold Cove and along the coastline....
Principal Investigator:Evans, David J.A. Licenced Year(s):
This is a continuation of work begun in 1985 and 1986: to map the surficial geology and geomorphology in the area of Phillips Inlet and the Wootton Peninsula, N.W. Ellesmere Island; as well as to collect samples of shells from stratigraphic sections and driftwood from raised beaches for C14 dating....
