Doctoral thesis which adopts an approach designed by Binford to examine how muskoxen were exploited by the Copper Inuit who lived on northern Banks Island during the nineteenth century. A set of food value indices are developed for muskox anatomical parts, which are used to predict how the...
Subfossil bryophytes in eastern Beringia: their paleoenvironmental and phytogeographical significanceDownload
Doctoral thesis. Bryophytes, more particularly mosses, are used in the paleoenvironmental reconstruction and historical biogeography of eastern Beringia, an area including Alaska and the Yukon. The Old Crow Basin in northern Yukon was studied in detail. // Appendix 2: Subfossil bryophytes...
Describes the origin and mineral composition of the Aristifats diatreme, one of seven Seton age volcanic centres occurring in a linear belt between Taltheilei Narrows and Utsingi Point in the East Arm of Great Slave Lake, NWT.
Masters thesis. Examined various methods of alleviating the problems associated with existing water distribution systems that rely on bleeding as a means of freeze protection. A data base on existing bleeder installation in Whitehorse was developed.
Masters thesis. Examines a model of single-enterprise development from an urban geographic perspective.
Ice surface temperature, albedo, and surface elevation change of glaciers and ice caps of the Queen Elizabeth Islands, Nunavut, Canada, 1995-2015.Download
Inter-annual variability in glacier and ice cap surface mass balance in the Queen Elizabeth Islands (QEI), Arctic Canada, is driven primarily by variability in summer melt. Mean summer (June-August) QEI glacier surface temperatures (LSTs) and shortwave broadband black-sky surface albedo (BSA) are...
Documentation and analysis of the clothing worn by non-native men in the Canadian arctic prior to 1920, with an emphasis on footwearDownload
Masters thesis. Written and visual documentary sources and surviving footwear artifacts were examined to establish (1) strengths and weaknesses inherent in the use of these types of documentary evidence and (2) clothing practices of British, American and Canadian men in the Canadian arctic from...
Masters thesis analysing the interrelations of vegetation and physical environment that form palsas in a small area of the Canada Precambrian Shield.
Masters thesis based on detailed field and laboratory studies of a palsa complex near Fort Simpson, NWT in order to characterize and determine the origin of the landform.
Land ice is losing mass to the world’s oceans at an accelerated rate. The world’s glaciers contain much less ice than the ice sheets but contribute equally to eustatic sea level rise and are expected to continue to do so over the coming centuries if global temperatures continue to rise. It is...
