Upper Cretaceous paleoenvironmental reconstruction of the gateway between the Boreal and Western Interior Seas: The Boundary Creek and Smoking Hills Formations, NWT
Principal Investigator: Schroder-Adams, Claudia J.
Licensed Year(s): 2012
Summary: The main objective of this research project is to improve the stratigraphic framework of the Cretaceous Western Interior Sea region and the understanding of the paleoenvironmental setting of a Cretaceous aged oceanographic gateway between the Boreal Sea and the Western Interior Sea that flooded large parts of North America. The proposed localities have the type section of the two targeted forma...

Assessing the potential for Environmental Sensitivity Index mapping in the Arctic using Synthetic Aperture Radar
Principal Investigator: Duffe, Jason A
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: (1) fly oblique helicopter videography along the Beaufort Sea shoreline from the Alaska/Yukon border to the Northwest Territories/Nunavut border; (2) using conventional methods, interpret helicopter videography and create an Environmental Sensitivity Index map. This will consist of a vector shapefile of shoreline types; and (3) using satellite ra...

Environmental and Sea Level Change in the Northwestern Arctic Archipelago
Principal Investigator: England, John H
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: This research is concerned with the nature and style of past glaciations as well as the history of sea level and climatic changes in the western Arctic. The broad objective is to obtain a long term paleoclimatic record (before the arrival of the Pre-Dors...

Coastal retreat and shoreface dynamics on the Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula
Principal Investigator: Hequette, Arnaud
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992 1991
Summary: The research will involve the survey of cliffs and beaches located along the shoreline of the Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula near Atkinson Point. This information will assist in determining if the shoreline has changed. Measurements will also be taken for water depth in the nearby lagoons and bays. Sediments will be collected from all sites visited for further laboratory analyses....

Coastal evolution in the Mackenzie Delta and Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula region
Principal Investigator: Hill, Philip R.
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The field activities consist of three small projects: (1) the measurement of beaches and a survey of Tibjak Beach (located 15km north of Tuktoyaktuk); (2) a study of the sand bars located at the mouth of the East Channel in Kittigazuit Bay; and (3) a preliminary study of the lakes of the Mackenzie Delta in order to determine which lakes will be selected for future research. These activities will ...

Coastal Project 13192
Principal Investigator: Taylor, R.B.
Licensed Year(s): 1992 1990
Summary: The researcher and his team will search for new evidence pertaining to the recent history of relative sea level so that a Holocene sea level curve can be constructed for the Arctic Island shores....

Sedimentology of Channel-fills and Point Bar Deposits of the Former Liard and South Nahanni Rivers
Principal Investigator: Smith, Derald
Licensed Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher and team will study the sediments ( mud and sand) in river cutbanks to reconstruct the paleogeography (river history) of the Nahanni Butte topographic basin....

On-Shore/Off-Shore Beaufort Shelf Drilling Program
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, S.R.
Licensed Year(s): 1990 1989
Summary: The team will drill and sample five 100 meter boreholes along a transect from northern Richards Island to an anomalous permafrost site 25 Km off-shore. In site testing, geophysical and geothermal logging will accompany the drilling. Undisturbed core will be maintained and shipped to the SINT lab in Inuvik for detailed logging, testing and subsampling....

Quaternary History of Nansen Sound
Principal Investigator: Bednarski, Jan
Licensed Year(s): 1990 1988 1987
Summary: The Researcher will map surficial deposits, log stratigraphic sections and survey raised marine shorlines in the Nansen Sound area....

Spatial and Temporal Variation of Vegetation on Raised Beaches, Devon Island
Principal Investigator: Pearce, Cheryl M.
Licensed Year(s): 1988 1987
Summary: Dr. Pearce and her associate are returning to Truelove Lowland to evaluate an idea that plant associations growing on raised beaches of different ages are a result of the type of soil and water conditions they are growing on rather than the amount of time that they have had to live there....
