Beaufort Sea Coastal and Nearshore Geoscience Research 2018
Principal Investigator: Whalen, Dustin JR
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017
Summary: The primary objective is to provide the means to improve the knowledge of physical conditions in the Arctic coastal zone in order to help government agencies, corporations and local residents understand mitigate and reduce the impacts of climate driven changes. This research has 3 targeted objectives: 1) to gain a better understanding of coastal permafrost; 2) to provide and updated assessment of ...

Seawater and depositional variations across the Slave craton: insight from banded iron formation and associated rocks
Principal Investigator: Haugaard, Rasmus RH
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: In the previous year, research work were started on some of the new occurrences of 2.9 - 2.6 Ga old banded iron formations in the NWT. This opened an exceptional opportunity to study ocean chemistry directly preceding the Great Oxidization Event (GOE). In this regard, the research group has been engaged with the Northwest Territories Geoscience Office (NTGO) to undertake field and laboratory studi...

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...

Carbonate sedimentation in the Mesoproterozoic Bylot Supergroup (Baffin Island, N.W.T.) and its influence on microbialite microstructure.
Principal Investigator: Kah, Linda
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993
Summary: Stromatolites are variously shaped mounds or reefs composed of sediments and the fossilized remains of single-celled marine organisms called blue-green algae. There are massive fossil reefs located on Baffin Island which are some of the largest known of their age. By studying the structure, form and chemical make-up of these reefs, information about the ancient ocean and the growth of ancient re...

A Study of the Supply of Organic Bromine from the Ocean to the Arctic Atmosphere
Principal Investigator: Moore, Robert M.
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: Initiated in 1989, the aim of the project is to estimate how important is the ocean as a source of organic bromine to the Arctic atmosphere, and secondarily to further our knowledge of the origin of a range of halocarbons in the ocean....

Beaufort sea ice motion program - Wintertime hydrography
Principal Investigator: Melling, Humfrey
Licensed Year(s): 1988 1987
Summary: To improve understanding of the role which wintertime freezing over the Mackenzie Shelf of the Beaufort Sea plays in maintaining the peculiar cold halocline of the Arctic Ocean...
