Abstract(Summary)
We are conducting integrative and multi-disciplinary structural and stratigraphic research to precisely date the timing of structural deformation associated with the Eurekan deformation to provide new insight into the tectonic evolution of the Arctic. Our study is also expected to provide insight into Paleocene and Eocene climates of the Canadian High Arctic. This work is a contribution to the Pearya Activity within the Western Arctic Project of the GEM Program of the Geological Survey of Canada.
We conducted a 4-week field program in July and August 2017 on Ellesmere Island that was led by Bundesanstalt für Geowissenschaften und Rohstoffe (BGR; German Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources) and the Geological Survey of Canada. Two side camp locations were targeted for detailed structural and stratigraphic study: Stenkul Fiord (southern Ellesmere Island, NTS 049D/5) and Wootton Peninsula, northeastern Ellesmere Island (NTS 340F/4; Figures 1, 2). Our field-based mapping and detailed stratigraphic studies included sedimentology and collection of mudrock and sediments for isotopic, element geochemical, organic geochemical, paleontological, and palynological analyses.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
We are conducting integrative and multi-disciplinary structural and stratigraphic research to precisely date the timing of structural deformation associated with the Eurekan Orogeny to provide new insight into the tectonic evolution of the Arctic Ocean. Our study we also provide insight into Paleocene and Eocene climates of the Canadian High Arctic. We conducted a 6-week long field program in July and August 2017 on Ellesmere Island that was led by Bundesanstalt für Geowissenschaften und Rohstoffe (BGR; German Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources) and the Geological Survey of Canada. Two side camp locations were targeted for detailed structural and stratigraphic study: Stenkul Fiord (southern Ellesmere Island) and Wootton Peninsula, northeastern Ellesmere Island (Figure 1). Our field-based interpretative mapping and detailed stratigraphic studies included sedimentology and collection of mudrock and sediments for isotopic, element geochemical, organic geochemical, paleontological and palynological analyses.
