Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The presentation discusses research activities that are planned to be undertaken in proposed field work on Bylot Island and northern Baffin Island under the GEM2 Program of Natural Resources Canada. The field work will examine the sedimentary rock successions that are present in these areas today, and that formed in Cretaceous-Paleogene time, approximately 110 to 60 million years ago. The rocks will be studied in detail to assess the precise ages of the rock successions, the environments that they formed in, and the plants and animals that lived in these environments. This information is used to reconstruct the ancient geologic history of the eastern Canadian Arctic and to better understand the potential for energy resources in this region.
