Carboniferous Basins in Svalbard, Canada and the Barents Sea (CBS2) (149240)
Proposal Status: Conformity Determination Issued
Project Overview
Type of application: Renewal
Proponent name: Jean-Baptiste
Company: University of Oslo
Schedule:
Start Date: 2020-07-01
End Date: 2020-07-14
Operation Type: Annual
Project Description:
The project aims at investigating the geometry, kinematics and faulting activity of NW-SE striking faults and to evaluate their impact as potential transfer/transform faults on (early) Carboniferous basins and subsequent Cenozoic break-up in Svalbard, the Barents Sea and Arctic Canada, using seismic, aeromagnetic, bathymetry and structural fieldwork data. We will emphasize the early Carboniferous tectonic history of Arctic regions, a period of transition from late/post-orogenic collapse to continental rifting. In addition, we will attempt to constrain the origin and timing of formation of NW-SE striking faults by investigating basement rocks adjacent to Carboniferous basins, and discuss pre-Caledonian (Neoproterozoic?) tectonic history of Arctic terranes.

Waste and Impacts
Environmental Impacts
During the 26 days of field investigation, combustible garbage (sewage and other combustible) will be burned. Unburned combustible and non-combustible will be sealed in waterproof bags to avoid seepage into the environment, and stored in a container outside the tent. Bear repelent will be used to prevent bears from spreading waste in the environment. Greywater will be dispoed in dugged out pits, which will be backfilled. Upon completion of fieldwork, unburned sealed waste will be brought back to Resolute Bay.
Waste Management
Waste Type Quantity Generated Treatement Method Disposal Method
Sewage (human waste) 8 kg Unburned waste will be Sealed in waterproof bags and container, and will be brought back to Resolute Bay. Burned on site as much as possible.
Greywater 13 liters Pits to be backfilled. In dugged out pits.
Combustible wastes 8 kg Unburned waste will be bagged in waterprrof bags and container, and will be brought back to Resolute Bay. Burn as much as possible.
Non-Combustible wastes 8 kg To be brought back to Resolute Bay upon completion of fieldwork. Crushed, bagged, and stored in a waterproof container.
