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. Examines a model of single-enterprise development from an urban geographic perspective.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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...
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...
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.
