De Beers Canada Mining Inc. constructed an artificial reef in Snap Lake to compensate for habitat loss in an inland lake and its outlet stream during advanced exploration. This field monitoring program will determine the success of the artificial reef a...

The Devonian patch reefs of Mercy Bay, Banks Island are important as an example of fossil coral reefs that may also be able to provide insight into the nature of a reef ecosystem immediately before a time of global reef collapse. The researcher will fly to the Parks Canada cabin at Mercy Bay and will use a helicopter to travel to 5 camps and stay at each fly camp for a period of 2 days. Equipmen...

Field work will involve detailed measurement & description of stratigraphic sections using a range pole and compass, and mapping and selective sampling of reefs using a geological hammer. Follow-up work at Queen's University will involve analysis of field data and examination of samples using a variety of laboratory techniques. These reefs are an ecological "missing link" between the two major re...
Principal Investigator:Narbonne, Guy Licenced Year(s):
At each locality, we will measure the rock section with a tape and collect samples with a hammer. Samples collected will be examined under a microscope and using geochemical techniques at Queen's University. Research will concentrate on determining conditions under which these reefs (1200 million year old fossil reefs on the Borden Peninsula) grew and comparing it with the condition under which mo...
Principal Investigator:Thornton, Sheila Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher will create an artifical reef in the Churchill region and develop an arctic ecosystem study site. She will create a species inventory which will involve benthic sampling using SCUBA gear. Species include benthic marine invertebrates, fish and pelagic invertebrates found in 0-20 metres of water....
