Principal Investigator:Schroder-Adams, Claudia J. Licenced Year(s):
The main objective of this research project is to improve the stratigraphic framework of the Cretaceous Western Interior Sea region and the understanding of the paleoenvironmental setting of a Cretaceous aged oceanographic gateway between the Boreal Sea and the Western Interior Sea that flooded large parts of North America.
The proposed localities have the type section of the two targeted forma...
Principal Investigator:Duffe, Jason A Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of this research project are to:
(1) fly oblique helicopter videography along the Beaufort Sea shoreline from the Alaska/Yukon border to the Northwest Territories/Nunavut border;
(2) using conventional methods, interpret helicopter videography and create an Environmental Sensitivity Index map. This will consist of a vector shapefile of shoreline types; and
(3) using satellite ra...

This research is concerned with the nature and style of past glaciations as well as the history of sea level and climatic changes in the western Arctic. The broad objective is to obtain a long term paleoclimatic record (before the arrival of the Pre-Dors...
Principal Investigator:Hequette, Arnaud Licenced Year(s):
The research will involve the survey of cliffs and beaches located along the shoreline of the Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula near Atkinson Point. This information will assist in determining if the shoreline has changed. Measurements will also be taken for water depth in the nearby lagoons and bays. Sediments will be collected from all sites visited for further laboratory analyses....
Principal Investigator:Hill, Philip R. Licenced Year(s):1994
The field activities consist of three small projects: (1) the measurement of beaches and a survey of Tibjak Beach (located 15km north of Tuktoyaktuk); (2) a study of the sand bars located at the mouth of the East Channel in Kittigazuit Bay; and (3) a preliminary study of the lakes of the Mackenzie Delta in order to determine which lakes will be selected for future research. These activities will ...
Principal Investigator:Taylor, R.B. Licenced Year(s):
The researcher and his team will search for new evidence pertaining to the recent history of relative sea level so that a Holocene sea level curve can be constructed for the Arctic Island shores....
Principal Investigator:Smith, Derald Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher and team will study the sediments ( mud and sand) in river cutbanks to reconstruct the paleogeography (river history) of the Nahanni Butte topographic basin....
Principal Investigator:Dallimore, S.R. Licenced Year(s):
The team will drill and sample five 100 meter boreholes along a transect from northern Richards Island to an anomalous permafrost site 25 Km off-shore. In site testing, geophysical and geothermal logging will accompany the drilling. Undisturbed core will be maintained and shipped to the SINT lab in Inuvik for detailed logging, testing and subsampling....
Principal Investigator:Bednarski, Jan Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher will map surficial deposits, log stratigraphic sections and survey raised marine shorlines in the Nansen Sound area....
Principal Investigator:Pearce, Cheryl M. Licenced Year(s):
Dr. Pearce and her associate are returning to Truelove Lowland to evaluate an idea that plant associations growing on raised beaches of different ages are a result of the type of soil and water conditions they are growing on rather than the amount of time that they have had to live there....
