Deglaciation of the NW Laurentide Ice Sheet and opening of the Mackenzie valley
Principal Investigator: Froese, Duane G
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: In this project, the research team aim to improve the chronology of the retreat of the Laurentide Ice Sheet from the eastern foot of the Mackenzie Mountains and the Mackenzie River valley that began around 14,000 years ago, and to gain better understanding of the dynamics of how the ice left the region and development of large lakes that occupied the valleys. The team will attempt to quantify the ...

Timing of deglaciation of the Mackenzie River valley 60-67 dg N
Principal Investigator: Froese, Duane G
Licensed Year(s): 2015
Summary: The objective of this research project is to search for glacial erratic boulders left behind by the retreating ice sheet margin and collect samples for cosmogenic exposure dating. In order to obtain time constraints on the deglaciation ages in the Mackenzie River valley the research team will apply Be-10 cosmogenic exposure dating. The research team will aim to collect samples in a series of v...

Sampling of Quaternary glacial sediments exposed in Beaufort Sea and Amundsen Gulf area as a basis for comparison with marine sequences on Beaufort Shelf and Slope
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, Scott R
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: This proposed research focuses on the collection of small sediment/pebble samples from known terrestrial glacial deposits at coastal exposures at various locations in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR). These sites each have different stratigraphic settings and existing published interpretations of glacial source and providence. The results from these investigations should enable direct c...

Heavy Mineral Indicator Tracing in Glacial-Fluvial Systems
Principal Investigator: Russell, Hazen A.J.
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2011
Summary: The objective of this study is to improve understanding of transportation and deposition of heavy minerals in eskers and associated surficial materials. A large portion of work is being completed remotely on the esker network using satellite imagery and data collected from the 1960’s through 1990’s. Two field areas have been chosen centered on the MacKay Lake and Beaverhill Lake. Secondary work ...

Surficial Geology and Till Geochemistry of the Yellowknife Greenstone Belt Area.
Principal Investigator: Kerr, Daniel E.
Licensed Year(s): 2001 2000 1999
Summary: The primary objective is to provide geoscience data and new exploration techniques in the Yellowknife Greenstone Belt area that can be used in delineation of reserves and discovery of new mineral deposits. The main mode of transportation will be by helicopter (206L), float plane, truck (where road access is available), and possibly by boat. The helicopter and plane will be based out of Yellowkni...

Neo-proterozoic glacial events, Mackenzie Mountains northwestern Canada
Principal Investigator: Narbonne, Guy
Licensed Year(s): 2001 1999 1998 1996 1994 1992 1991 1989 1988
Summary: This study looks at aspects of the earth's history. The Ice Brook Formation in the Mackenzie Mountains and the Sheepbed formation are rock units that will be studied. Members of the field party will be transported to base camps by helicopter and camp moves will be done by helicopter. Ground work is to be done on foot. Data is collected through photography of rock outcrops, measurement of stratigra...

Glacial Geomorphological Field Mapping on Akpatok Island, Resolution Island and Button Islands.
Principal Investigator: Gray, James T.
Licensed Year(s): 1994
Summary: The research team will land by helicopter from the coastguard vessel at a number of sites along the coasts of Resolution Island, Button Islands and Akpatok Island. Researchers will measure with a compass the directions of glacial scratches made by former ice sheet on bedrock and the altitude of old raised beaches, which have been uplifted after glaciers left. Researchers will identify the geolog...

Quaternary Geology of the Winter Lake Map Area
Principal Investigator: Kerr, Daniel E.
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: The researcher will be conducting geological field work in the region defined by the NTS Winter Lake Map (No. 86A). The work will involve surveying the land features and collecting samples of the rock and sediments in order that this information can be summarized on a geological map....

The Quaternary history of Scoresby Bay, Ellesmere Island
Principal Investigator: Gualtieri, Lyn
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: The purpose of this research is to determine the amount of ice coverage during the last glaciation by investigating the landforms that occur today. I will also record the change in sea-level and the rise in the land as the glaciers receded. Evidence for the movement of glaciers onto eastern Ellesmere Island from Greenland will be collected. The data collected in this field season will contribut...

Quaternary Geology of the Beaufort Sea Coastal Plain
Principal Investigator: Vincent, Jean-Serge
Licensed Year(s): 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The researcher and his team will complete a detailed paleomagnetic sampling of the glacial and nonglacial sediments in the Morgan Bluffs of eastern Banks Island, and collect samples of boulders for Chlorine 36 dating. The data will allow the team to confirm or disconfirm previously proposed correlations and establish on a firmer basis the chronological framework for one of the longest sequences o...
