Principal Investigator:Pearce, Cheryl M. Licenced Year(s):1988
To investigate the spatial and temporal relationships between plant species distribution and beach age on Truelove Lowland, Devon Island. To measure plant composition and spatial variability on different sites on a raised beach and on raised beaches of different ages from the most recent to the oldest and (2) to correlate vegetation parameters with site factors such as soil texture, macro-nutrien...
Principal Investigator:Andrews, John T. Licenced Year(s):
To study the glacial geomorphology and chronology of the NE coast of Frobisher Bay by measuring the elevation of raised marine deposits, collecting shells for radiocarbon dating, collecting samples of glacial deposits for grain-size and mineraological identification, and the gathering of bathymetric data along some of the small fiords on the north coast....
Principal Investigator:Straver, Jay A. Licenced Year(s):
To examine coastal and inland glacial tills and moraines. Data concerning the degree of soil development and boulder weathering characteristrics will be collected to determine the age of glacial deposits. Small till samples will be collected from the raised marine deposits for purposes of radiocarbon dating....
Principal Investigator:Green, David Licenced Year(s):
A study of the Quaternary sediments across Russell Island with special emphasis on the raised marine deposits, to establish sea level fluctuations which are related to isostatic coastal movements during glaciations. Shell and wood fragments from beach depostis will be collected....
Principal Investigator:Laymon, Charles A. Licenced Year(s):
Mapping moraines and other glacial features, collecting samples of till and noting minerology of erratics encountered on the surface, measuring the orientation of striae and other ice directional features, measuring the elevation of raised marine deposits and sampling these deposits for shells which will be radiocarbon dated and used for amino acid geochronolgy....
Principal Investigator:Clark, Peter Licenced Year(s):
Measuring elevations of marine deposits (old beaches and ocean bottoms), shell fossil and pollen sampling measuring ice gauging directions and studying weathering characteristics of the rock....
Principal Investigator:Brigham, Julie K. Licenced Year(s):
As part of a Mastre's degree to study the glacial history of the area. The raised marine terraces will be studied. Glacial and glaciomarine sediments will also be examined....
