Testing for Pre-Holocene Lacustrine Sediments in the Canadian High Arctic
Principal Investigator: Smith, Rod
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: This study will test the hypothesis that pre-Holocene (older than 10, 000 years) lake sedimentary records exist within modern lake basins found on Ellesmere Island. Recent research has not been able to penetrate beyond a layer of course sand and pebbles. Recent technological improvements in the coring apparatus should allow the full penetration of this material, as well as the hypothesized older...

Palaeoenvironment of Truelove Lowland (Devon Island) as Determined from Lake Sediments
Principal Investigator: Smith, Rod
Licenced Year(s): 1988
Summary: Rod Smith and Louise Hollingsworth are part of Dr. King's research party working on the Truelove Lowland. They will be extracting columns of soil from the bottoms of the larger lakes to determine what the climate was like long ago. They will also collect soil samples from the areas surrounding the lake for comparative purposes....

Changes in sea level along the Iqaluit coastline
Principal Investigator: Andrews, John T.
Licenced Year(s): 1988 1987
Summary: 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....
