Coastal Hazards, Relative Sea-level Change, and Climate Impacts on Northern Coasts and Seaways
Principal Investigator: Forbes, Donald L
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The western Canadian Arctic coast is one of the most rapidly changing coastlines in the world and among the most vulnerable to climate change. The causes of this vulnerability have been studied over the past decade. This project involves monitoring coast...


Quaternary Glacial Geology and Sea Level Change, Western Canadian Arctic Archipelago
Principal Investigator: England, John H
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: This research is concerned with the nature and style of past glaciations as well as the history of sea level and climatic changes. The broad objective is to obtain a long term paleoclimatic record (before the arrival of the Pre-Dorset people) from these...


Younger Dryas and Postglacial Threshold Events in the Western Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Dyke, Arthur
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002 2001 2000
Summary: Each two person team will work out of 4 field camps, each occupied for 10 days. The camps will be put in the field by Twin Otter Aircraft. From each camp, the team will travel by 4-wheel ATV, using a different route each day. At each site, samples of 20-500 grams will be collected for radiocarbon dating. The elevation will be measured at each sample collection point....


Glaciation and the Evolution of the Canadian High Arctic
Principal Investigator: England, John H
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1990
Summary: 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....


Glacial history and glaciomarine environments, Marvin Peninsula. northern Ellesmere Island.
Principal Investigator: Lemmen, S. Donald
Licenced Year(s): 1987
Summary: To define the extent of ice coverage on Marvin Peninsula during the last glaciation, and the nature and extent of glacial features which predate the last glaciation. To recover sediment samples from Disraeli Fiord in order to define contemporary glaciomarine litho and biofacies. To study postglacial emergence to clarify the nature of relative sea-level changes in the region....


A history of sea level and climate for the last 10,000 to 20,000 years from the outermost coast of Frobisher Bay.
Principal Investigator: Andrews, John T.
Licenced Year(s): 1988 1987
Summary: To obtain a series of lake cores from outer Iqaluit, Baffin Island, NWT, from ca. 100 m. above sea level down to sea level; examine the cores for changes in the diatom floras which respond to shifts in the pH of the water and salinity, as well as samples for radiocarbon dating and pollen analysis....
