Multi-year study of high arctic periglacial processes and related quaternary history
Principal Investigator: Washburn, A.L.
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990 1988 1987
Summary: The researcher will continue the long-term investigation of how the landscape has changed since the glaciers left 10 000 years ago. In particular, this study is examining the effects of frost and permafrost on the landscape. The researcher will be returning to several sites visited in previous years in order to check earlier observations....

Geoscientific research on Bylot Island and adjacent Baffin Island
Principal Investigator: Shilts, William W.
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992 1991
Summary: The focus of this project is on examining the glacial and periglacial features of southern Bylot Island and the area near Pond Inlet. Researchers and graduate students will be collecting data on lichens, ice, land features and organisms in order to gain a better understanding of why glaciers of the area are retreating (melting)....

Application of ERS-1 Radar Data to the Study of the White-Thompson Glacier Complex, Axel Heiburg Island, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Moisan, Yves
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: The field research will involve the measurement of a high arctic valley glacier using mainly portable electronic equipment in order to better understand the interaction between radar signals and a glacier surface. This exercise may contribute to more accurate interpretation of satellite radar data on glaciological phenomena....

Geography, Ecology and Polar Medicine
Principal Investigator: Nogoita, Teodor Gheorghe
Licensed Year(s): 1992
Summary: The team will study permafrost, ice and crystal formations, moss and lichen chromatography and human adaptation to cold....

A Geomprphic Investigation of the White and Thompson Terminal Moraine Areas, Expedition Fiord, Axel Heiberg Island, NWT
Principal Investigator: Pollard, Wayne H
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1992 1991 1990 1988
Summary: The study will involve the mapping of the terminal moraine system of the White and Thompson Glaciers, the sampling and analyses of sediment, ice and water and the monitoring of a series of study sites....

Quaternary Geology and Periglacial Geomorphology of Banks Island
Principal Investigator: Worsley, Peter
Licensed Year(s): 1988
Summary: Dr. Worsley is coming from England with his research associates to continue his studies of how the rocks, landscape, and permafrost of Banks Island have changed in the last million years. He is interested in using this information to try to determine what conditions where like in England long ago....

Development of high Arctic push moraines
Principal Investigator: King, Lorenz
Licensed Year(s): 1988
Summary: to study marginal processes at ice edges using terrestrial survey photogrammetry, geomorphological mapping, and geophysical soundings; to investigate glacier fluctuations by comparing aerial photographs; to produce geomorphological and topographical maps of areas studied...

Licence #5039
Principal Investigator: Semmel, Arno
Licensed Year(s): 1985
Summary: To obtain more information about periglacial process and environments in a formerly unglaciated area with regard to slope denundation and fluvial process. To show the differences between areas of continuous and discontinuous permafrost. To investigate along the Dempster Highway different valley-profiles by mapping the geomorphological features and to take soil samples....
