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.
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.
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...
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...
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...
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.
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...
Masters thesis which documents field observations from the Nozzle and Rockslide Pass rock avalanches. Also evaluates, modifies and calibrates a two-parameter hydraulic model for the purpose of rock avalanche and velocity prediction.
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...
Masters thesis. Examines a model of single-enterprise development from an urban geographic perspective.
