2003 Artificial Reef Monitoring Program at Snap Lake
Principal Investigator: LeDrew, Kevin
Licensed Year(s): 2003
Summary: De Beers Canada Mining Inc. constructed an artificial reef in Snap Lake to compensate for habitat loss in an inland lake and its outlet stream during advanced exploration. This field monitoring program will determine the success of the artificial reef a...

Paleoecology of Mercy Bay reefs, Frasnian, Banks Island
Principal Investigator: Edinger, Evan N
Licensed Year(s): 2001 2000
Summary: The Devonian patch reefs of Mercy Bay, Banks Island are important as an example of fossil coral reefs that may also be able to provide insight into the nature of a reef ecosystem immediately before a time of global reef collapse. The researcher will fly to the Parks Canada cabin at Mercy Bay and will use a helicopter to travel to 5 camps and stay at each fly camp for a period of 2 days. Equipmen...

Paleontology & Sedimentology of Late Proterozoic Reefs, Mackenzie Mountains, NWT.
Principal Investigator: Narbonne, Guy
Licensed Year(s): 2001 1999 1998 1996 1994 1992 1991 1989 1988
Summary: Field work will involve detailed measurement & description of stratigraphic sections using a range pole and compass, and mapping and selective sampling of reefs using a geological hammer. Follow-up work at Queen's University will involve analysis of field data and examination of samples using a variety of laboratory techniques. These reefs are an ecological "missing link" between the two major re...

Mesoproterozoic Reefs and Associated Strata, Bordon Pennisula, Baffin Island.
Principal Investigator: Narbonne, Guy
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993
Summary: At each locality, we will measure the rock section with a tape and collect samples with a hammer. Samples collected will be examined under a microscope and using geochemical techniques at Queen's University. Research will concentrate on determining conditions under which these reefs (1200 million year old fossil reefs on the Borden Peninsula) grew and comparing it with the condition under which mo...

The Creation and Utilization of an Artifical Reef in the Churchill Region
Principal Investigator: Thornton, Sheila
Licensed Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher will create an artifical reef in the Churchill region and develop an arctic ecosystem study site. She will create a species inventory which will involve benthic sampling using SCUBA gear. Species include benthic marine invertebrates, fish and pelagic invertebrates found in 0-20 metres of water....
