Principal Investigator:Fiess, Kathryn Licenced Year(s):
To identify a vertebrate fossil of Carboniferous age recently found in the Golata Formation in the Liard Basin.
The research group is studying outcrops of Devonian to Carboniferous age shale to establish the hydrocarbon resource potential for the NWT, BC, and Yukon regions of the Liard area. Scientific investigations include measuring rock outcrop sections and taking small (approximately 100 ...
Principal Investigator:Vavrek, Matthew J Licenced Year(s):
This project is a continuation of the collaborative research program on ancient biodiversity in the Canadian Arctic. Recently, the group completed work supported by Polar Continental Shelf Project in the Brackett Basin in the westcentral Northwest Territories and the Bonnet Plume Basin in northeastern the Yukon Territory, during which the research team recovered both new vertebrate (dinosaur) foss...
Principal Investigator:Cumbaa, S.L. Licenced Year(s):
The researcher and his team will look for bones of fishes, reptiles and mammals that can help us understand better the kinds of environments that were present in the Arctic between 70 and 45 million years ago....
Principal Investigator:Wilson, Mark V.H. Licenced Year(s):201319981996
The Researchers will collect fossil vertebrates, invertebrates and stratigraphic information from measured sections of area near Avalanche Lake, Grizzly Bear Lake and new localities in the general area....
Principal Investigator:Russell, Dale A. Licenced Year(s):
Mr. Russell in the company of eight other paleontological personnel intend to prospect for fossil vertebrate remains in the area of Bylot Island....
Principal Investigator:Cumbaa, Stephen L Licenced Year(s):19901989
To assess extent of any impact on Geodetic Hills locality by last year's major research and exploration effort; to produce a topographic map of the locality; to sample outlying parts of the forest exposure; to search for vertebrate remains; to survey, map and collect material from sites farther up Fossil Forest River at Strathcona Fjord and to produce topographic map of area sampled last year by N...
Principal Investigator:Dawson, Mary R. Licenced Year(s):
To explore for fossil vertebrate in Cenozoic rocks of Ellesmere, Axel Heiberg and Devon islands, in hopes of expanding the record of terrestrial vertebrates known fromhigh latitudes; to find vertebrates older and younger than those previously found as well as to explore for fossil vertebrates in the Geodetic Hills area of eastern Axel Heiberg Island, in an attempt to date the unaltered fossil wood...
Principal Investigator:Elliott, D.K. Licenced Year(s):
Biostratigraphic sections will be taken through the Peel Sound and Somerset Island formations on Somerset Island to increase knowledge of the relationship between the arctic Paleozoic vertebrate faunas and those in western Europe. To collect material and paleoecological data to study the habitats of early vertebrates....
