Behavioral analysis of trace fossils at the Ediacaran-Cambrian boundary
Principal Investigator: Narbonne, Guy
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The world’s earliest animals appeared in the Ediacaran Period about 580 million years ago, and soft worm-like animals capable of movement appeared suddenly worldwide 555 million years ago. Previous studies (Narbonne and Aitken, Palaeontology, 1990; MacNaughton and Narbonne, Palaios, 1999; Narbonne, The Rise of Animals, 2007) have shown that these fossils are especially well represented in the Mac...

Proterozoic reefs in the Mackenzie Mountains
Principal Investigator: Narbonne, Guy
Licensed Year(s): 2001 1999 1998 1996 1994 1992 1991 1989 1988
Summary: For several years researchers have been examining a rock unit called the Sheepbed Formation in the Mackenzie Mountains. In 1998 fossil reefs were located in this structure. The goal of the 1999 field season is to identify the types of organisms which created the reef structures and what the climate was like when they were built. Members of the field party will be transported to the base camps by h...

Precambrian reefs on Victoria Island
Principal Investigator: Narbonne, Guy
Licensed Year(s): 1996
Summary: Study 800 million year old fossil reefs near Wynniatt Bay on Victoria Island. Will fly to the site using Polar Shelf Twin-Otter aircraft. Measurements and pictures will be taken of the rocks and about 100 kg of rock samples will be collected with a hammer. The rock samples will be studied back at the university....

Mesoproterozoic Reefs and Associated Strata, Bordon Pennisula, Baffin Island.
Principal Investigator: Narbonne, Guy
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993
Summary: At each locality, we will measure the rock section with a tape and collect samples with a hammer. Samples collected will be examined under a microscope and using geochemical techniques at Queen's University. Research will concentrate on determining conditions under which these reefs (1200 million year old fossil reefs on the Borden Peninsula) grew and comparing it with the condition under which mo...
