Benthic marine habitats in Canada have been well-sampled since the annual groundfish survey commenced in 1970. However, trawl surveys cover only non-rocky sediments and many species collected are not identified to lower taxa, leaving large gaps in our understanding of benthic diversity. Sponges...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
Masters thesis. Examines a model of single-enterprise development from an urban geographic perspective.
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...
Stratigraphy, sedimentology, and paleontology of the Bird Fiord Formation, Canadian arctic archipelagoDownload
Doctoral thesis. Supplies new information on the internal stratigraphy, sedimentology and dating of the Bird Fiord Formation on Ellesmere Island.
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...
