The Holocene paleoenvironment of Clements Markham Inlet, northern Ellesmere Island, N.W.T., CanadaDownload
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...
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...
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...
The growth and development of single-enterprise communities: the case of Yellowknife and WhitehorseDownload
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...
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.
