Land Management Problems in Hydrocarbon Development Areas with Ice-Rich Permafrost: Detection and Assessment
Principal Investigator: Pollard, Wayne H
Licensed Year(s): 2010 2009
Summary: The focus of this research is to better understand the distribution of underground ice in hydrocarbon development areas. By identifying how much ice there is, we want to study how oil/gas activities and climate change could affect the land. The reseracher plans to use non-destructive techniques like ground-penetrating radar to accomplish our surveys. March-April, 2010: plan is to conduct 1-2 we...

Massive Ice Study in Granular Deposits
Principal Investigator: Pollard, Wayne H
Licensed Year(s): 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: Sand, gravel and crushed stone are valuable geological resources, collectively known as aggregates. They are essential bed, foundation and building materials. The presence of massive ice in aggregate deposits results in a series of resource management problems, particularly for the oil industry and its contractors who rely on local granular deposits as building material. From an environmental pers...

Holocene Sea Level History and Ground Ice Occurrence in the High Arctic
Principal Investigator: Pollard, Wayne H
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1992 1991 1990 1988
Summary: Fieldwork consists of a combination of mapping surface materials and landforms and where possible retrieving shells from raised marine deposits to determine the date of emergence and the temperature conditions of the oceans when the shell was formed. Observations of ice and icy sediments will also be made. By collecting this data the researchers will be able to see broad patterns in the landscape...

Revegetation and Recovery of the Inuvik Burn Site - An Update
Principal Investigator: Pollard, Wayne H
Licensed Year(s): 1990
Summary: This project will involve a comparative study of plant types and terrain conditions between a series of sites from the 1968 burn site near Inuvik with sites that are undisturbed....

Ground Ice in the Mackenzie Delta and Yukon Coastal Plain Area
Principal Investigator: Pollard, Wayne H
Licensed Year(s): 1987
Summary: To complete a three year study concerned with the detailed investigation of ground ice characteristics by mapping ground ice distribution and stratigraphic relations along with collection of sediment and ice samples for grain, size, moisture content, isotope and crystallographic analysis. Field investigation will utilize existing ground ice slumps and permafrost exposures along coastal bluffs in ...
