Sedimentology, Ichnology and Biogenic Permeability of the upper Montney Formation, northeast British ColumbiaDownload
The upper Montney Formation is a tight gas reservoir that consists of silt and very fine-grained sandstone in its entirety. Despite its limited variation in grain-size, this formation is highly heterogeneous and the distribution of facies is complex, both vertically and laterally. Subtle changes...
Geochemical, petrophysical and geomechanical properties of stratigraphic sequences in Horn River Shale, Middle and Upper Devonian, Northeastern British Columbia, CanadaDownload
The Middle and Upper Devonian Horn River Shale, comprising the Evie and Otter Park members and the Muskwa Formation, northeast British Columbia, Canada is recognized as a significant shale gas reservoir in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin. However, many aspects of this shale formation have...
Geology, geochronology, thermobarometry, and tectonic evolution of the Queen Maud block, Churchill craton, Nunavut, CanadaDownload
The Queen Maud block is divided into two crustal belts. The western Perry River belt is dominated by Mesoarchean to Neoarchean granitic gneisses and supracrustal rocks; it was incorporated into the Rae domain by at least 2.46 Ga. The eastern Paalliq belt is dominated by the 2.52-2.45 Ga Queen...
Chemostratigraphy of the Boolgeeda Iron Formation and Turee Creek Group, Hamersley Basin, Western AustraliaDownload
In the most general sense, the Great Oxygenation Event (GOE) refers to the transition from oxygen poor to oxygen rich conditions on ancient Earth (Holland, 2002; Holland, 2006). It has traditionally been defined as the sedimentary intervals in which the isotopic signature for mass independent...
Sedimentology, Ichnology, and Palaeodepositional Affinity of the Cretaceous Bluesky Formation, AlbertaDownload
The lower Cretaceous Bluesky Formation of Alberta comprises marginal marine to marine siliciclastic sediments deposited during transgression of the Boreal Sea. The preserved record of sedimentation represents a complex lateral and vertical architecture, making sub-surface correlation challenging....
Traditional Land Use and Cover Change (LUCC) studies have focused on the change in attribute data (e.g., forest area, forest change rates, forest types, etc.) with few cases considering spatial data embedded in the dynamic process. However, LUCC varies with spatial and temporal dimensions in the...
Identifying and Modeling Evaporite Facies using Well Logs: Characterising the Devonian Elk Point Group salt giantDownload
Over the last century, study of evaporite deposits has evolved from modeling chemical successions and studying outcrops of insoluble material, to sedimentologic study of drill core paired with geochemical analysis. In this thesis, I add to published scientific literature on the Prairie Evaporite...
Characterizing an in-situ fraction of Photosynthetic Active Radiation product for implementation in the validation of MODIS-derived fraction of Photosynthetic Active Radiation products using continuous-wavelet transformsDownload
The goal of this thesis is to address the need to improve forestry monitoring and satellite validation techniques to better contextualize the effects that human-induced climate change is having on tropical dry forests (TDFs). Climate change is expected to change regional and global precipitation...
Anthropogenic climate warming is degrading the cryosphere. Retreating alpine glaciers and thawing permafrost pose the risk of releasing previously sequestered legacy contaminants to downstream environments, with potential negative consequences for downstream aquatic ecosystems. In this thesis I...
