A spatial Analysis of the Raised Beach Ecosystem, Truelove Lowland, Devon Island, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Pearce, Cheryl M.
Licensed Year(s): 1988 1987
Summary: To investigate the spatial and temporal relationships between plant species distribution and beach age on Truelove Lowland, Devon Island. To measure plant composition and spatial variability on different sites on a raised beach and on raised beaches of different ages from the most recent to the oldest and (2) to correlate vegetation parameters with site factors such as soil texture, macro-nutrien...

Licence #5014
Principal Investigator: Andrews, John T.
Licensed Year(s): 1985
Summary: To study the glacial geomorphology and chronology of the NE coast of Frobisher Bay by measuring the elevation of raised marine deposits, collecting shells for radiocarbon dating, collecting samples of glacial deposits for grain-size and mineraological identification, and the gathering of bathymetric data along some of the small fiords on the north coast....

Licence #4096
Principal Investigator: Straver, Jay A.
Licensed Year(s): 1984
Summary: To examine coastal and inland glacial tills and moraines. Data concerning the degree of soil development and boulder weathering characteristrics will be collected to determine the age of glacial deposits. Small till samples will be collected from the raised marine deposits for purposes of radiocarbon dating....

Licence #4078
Principal Investigator: Green, David
Licensed Year(s): 1984
Summary: A study of the Quaternary sediments across Russell Island with special emphasis on the raised marine deposits, to establish sea level fluctuations which are related to isostatic coastal movements during glaciations. Shell and wood fragments from beach depostis will be collected....

Licence #4014
Principal Investigator: Laymon, Charles A.
Licensed Year(s): 1984
Summary: Mapping moraines and other glacial features, collecting samples of till and noting minerology of erratics encountered on the surface, measuring the orientation of striae and other ice directional features, measuring the elevation of raised marine deposits and sampling these deposits for shells which will be radiocarbon dated and used for amino acid geochronolgy....

Licence #2722
Principal Investigator: Clark, Peter
Licensed Year(s): 1982
Summary: Measuring elevations of marine deposits (old beaches and ocean bottoms), shell fossil and pollen sampling measuring ice gauging directions and studying weathering characteristics of the rock....

Licence #2472
Principal Investigator: Brigham, Julie K.
Licensed Year(s): 1979
Summary: As part of a Mastre's degree to study the glacial history of the area. The raised marine terraces will be studied. Glacial and glaciomarine sediments will also be examined....
