Licensed Year(s): 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The objective of this research is to compare the formation processes of pingo-like mounds near the equator in Mars vs. the development of pingos in the Tuktoyaktuk Coastlands, and evaluate whether the two mounds types could be similar. Mars is a high-priority target for the Canadian and international planetary science communities. The main driver for this is the possibility of life on the Red P...

Oxidation Processes and the Preservation of Organic Biosignatures in a Permafrost Dominated Environment – A Martian Analogue in the Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Osinski, Gordon
Licensed Year(s): 2008
Summary: This license has been issued for the scientific research application # 878. The objective of this research is to examine the “Golden Deposit” rock formation similar to that recently discovered on Mars. The NASA rover, called “Opportunity,” discovered sulfur-bearing minerals on Mars, suggesting past water, and maybe life. This research will help researchers understand how these water systems wo...
