Reconstructing ancient ocean conditions from rocks of the Belcher Group, Belcher Islands, Nunavut (148774)
Proposal Status: Conformity Determination Issued
Project Overview
Type of application: New
Proponent name: Camille Partin
Company: University of Saskatchewan
Schedule:
Start Date: 2018-07-31
End Date: 2018-08-23
Operation Type: Seasonal
Project Description:
The purpose of this multi-year research is to study the origin of the sequence of rocks covering the Belcher Islands. The basic methods would be to observe the landscape, document how the different rock types are related, and collect some rock samples for further analysis. Ultimately, we want to understand the story of the ancient ocean in which the rocks of the Belcher Group were deposited, approximately 2 billion years ago. We will accomplish our sample collecting mostly by boat work and on foot, and possibly by ATV. Our field party consists of a professor (who has spent 5 summers in Nunavut and Greenland) and a graduate student from the University of Saskatchewan. We plan to hire locals to help us with transportation and look forward to interactions with residents of Sanikiluaq, including outreach activities.
