Time lapse imagery, an audio recorder and geophones were used to detect iceberg calving events on the Belcher Glacier, Devon Island, in the Canadian High Arctic, in order to identify the major controls on the rate and style of calving. Eleven calving events were identified between June 4th and...
Tidewater outlet glaciers drain approximately 47% of the ~105,000 km^2 covered by ice caps in the Queen Elizabeth Islands of Nunavut, Canada, suggesting that iceberg discharge may be an important process in the mass balance of these ice caps. Seasonal and inter-annual velocity changes of...
Masters thesis, outlining a Holocene paleoenvironmental model for Clements Markham Inlet on the northern coast of Ellesmere Island, based on driftwood, fossil plant, and marine mollusc data.
Environmental decision-making processes north of 60: the Beaufort Sea EARP and Lancaster Sound studyDownload
Examines the federal government's policy toward environmental decision-making using the Beaufort Sea EARP and the Lancaster Sound Region study as case studies.
The activity preferences, motivations, and camping satisfaction of resident and tourist campers in Yellowknife area campgroundsDownload
Masters thesis. Determines whether resident and tourist campers could be differentiated in terms of a number of pertinant dimensions of the camping experience. The results of the study have implications for regional recreation and tourism development strategies.
The mapping and dating of surficial glacial landforms and sediments across southern Banks Island document glaciation by the northwest Laurentide Ice Sheet (LIS) during the last glacial maximum. Geomorphic landforms confirm the operation of an ice stream at least 1000 m thick in Amundsen Gulf that...
Power and the marginal situation: Indian - relations in the Yellowknife - Fort Rae area of the Northwest TerritoriesDownload
Doctoral thesis. Data collected during two field trips is analyzed from the perspective of marginal man theory. It was found that Indian-white relations are singularly characterized by a subordinate-dominant relationship based on economic exploitation and the extension of power into the social,...
Autecological studies of Luzula confusa: a plant's response to the high arctic environment on King Christian Island, N.W.T.Download
An examination as to what adaptations were advantageous in survival and growth of Luzula confusa at Cape Abunathy.
Comprehensive, in-situ study of naturally occurring creep in ice-rich permafrost soil on a steep slope on the Great Bear River. A detailed surficial geology mapping along the Great Bear River was carried out in order to determine the most suitable field site. Coincidentally, the slope is situated...
Masters thesis. Populations of four species studied south of Great Slave Lake, May 1976-December 1977.
