Yukon-Northwest Seismic Network: Characterizing Earthquakes and Earth Structures
Principal Investigator: Audet, Pascal
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The objectives of this research project are 1) to improve the detection and characterization of earthquakes occurring within the northern Canadian Cordillera (comprising the Mackenzie and Richardson Mountains) and surrounding areas, which is one the most seismically active areas of Canada; and 2) to study the deep Earth structures to understand the formation and evolution of the Cordillera. To thi...


Teleseismic investigations of the crust and mantle structure beneath Banks Island, NWT
Principal Investigator: Audet, Pascal
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015
Summary: The goal of this project is to understand the structure and evolution of the crust and mantle beneath Banks Island in the western Arctic by analyzing new seismic data collected from an array of broadband seismic stations. The objective is to provide information on crustal and mantle structures to determine whether Banks Island forms a rifted margin, or forms the northern extension of the Canadian ...


EarthScope Transportable Array
Principal Investigator: Busby, Robert W
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: This project consists of a large deployment of ground motion sensors (290 total) throughout Alaska and western Canada; 44 located in Yukon Territory and 9 in the Northwest Territory. Each station senses the ground movement from distant earthquakes and sends data via satellite or radio modem to a central receiving point in San Diego. The purpose of collecting these data is to study deep geologic st...


The Mackenzie Mountains Earthscope Project
Principal Investigator: Schutt, Derek L
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The Mackenzie Mountains EarthScope project (MMEP) is funded under the EarthScope program of the U.S. National Science Foundation. This project is collaborating with the larger EarthScope USArray project, which will be studying seismicity (earthquakes) and earth structure in the broader northwestern Canadian and Alaskan regions, and with Canadian researchers from several agencies including the Yuko...


Terrestrial geoscience studies of earthquake (seismic) hazard in the Mackenzie-Beaufort area
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, Scott R
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2014
Summary: Industry and regulators require information on seismicity and its effect on engineering structures both at a regional and local scale. The primary source of this information is the National Building Code of Canada’s Seismic Hazard Value map. Ongoing work undertaken as part of the 2015 revision of this map suggests that an increased seismic (earthquake) hazard exists in the Mackenzie-Beaufort area....


Teleseismic studies in the Wopmay
Principal Investigator: Snyder, David B
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: This ongoing study will investigate the structure and composition of the Earth's crust and mantle to depths of 0-300 kilometres. The research team seeks better methods to characterize diamond reservoirs in order to make exploration more efficient and low impact. Teleseismic observatories are sited in remote locations in either linear or rectangular arrays where they record distant earthquakes ...


Sahtu Gravity Survey, 2006
Principal Investigator: Millman, Peter M
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: Devon Canada’s Sahtu Gravity Survey, 2006 has been designed in an effort to prioritize the seismic data acquisition (seismic lines) for a joint Talisman-Devon seismic program proposed within the project area during the winter of 2006-07. The gravity survey is a reconnaissance tool that allows geophysical data to be acquired over a large area in a short amount of time, and upon processing and inte...


CAnadian NOrthwest Experiment (CANOE)
Principal Investigator: Bostock, Michael
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003
Summary: The CANOE project will contribute to the understanding of the deep structure of the Earth by using recordings of distant earthquakes (from e.g., Japan, Fiji, Alaska, Mexico, Chile, Italy, Turkey). This is a collaborative research program involving scien...


Teleseismic Studies in the Lac de Gras Area
Principal Investigator: Snyder, David B
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2003 2000 1999
Summary: The objective of this ongoing study is to investigate the structure and composition of the Earth's crust and mantle to depths of 0 - 300 km from sites in the Lac de Gras area. Methods are being sought to characterize diamond reservoirs in order to make d...


Teleseismic investigation of upper mantle anisotrophy beneath Great Slave Lake shear zone NT.
Principal Investigator: Eaton, David
Licenced Year(s): 1999 1996
Summary: The goal of this study is to use advanced passive telesiesmic equipment to map the geological feature known as the Great Slave Lake shear zone. The planned geophysical survey will use between 9 and 15 instrument sites spaced 10 km apart and situated close to Hwy 5 between Hay River and the northern part of Wood Buffalo National Park. Each site will consist of solar panels, a buried seismometer, an...
