AbstractThe work presented here is a sub-activity of the GEM-2 Integrated Geoscience of the Northwest Passage: Boothia Peninsula-Somerset Island Activity. The aim of the subproject is to evaluate the Ordovician stratigraphy on Boothia Peninsula. Fieldwork on the Ordovician stratigraphy of Boothia Peninsula was carried out by the Canada-Nunavut Geoscience Office (CNGO) between July 17 and 30, 2017. It focused on sampling carbonate rocks within the Ordovician sequence at two sections on the peninsula. This work will provide essential data for more detailed stratigraphic division, evaluating the ages of different stratigraphic units and making stratigraphic correlations with other Arctic islands.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Studying the Ordovician stratigraphy on Boothia Peninsula is one of the three components of the GEM-2 Boothia-Somerset Integrated Geoscience Project. The aim of this study is to evaluate the Ordovician stratigraphy on Boothia Peninsula. This report summarises the Paleozoic stratigraphy and sections, and fieldwork on Ordovician sections on the peninsula during 2017 field season. This work will provide essential data for more detailed stratigraphic division, evaluating age of different stratigraphic units, and making stratigraphic correlation with other Arctic islands.
