Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
In July 2018 a 2-week field program was conducted in the Richardson Mountains in the northern Northwest Territories and Yukon. The field program was led by the Geological Survey of Canada, Calgary (Field Party Chief Dr. Thomas Hadlari) and also included researchers, students and wildlife monitors from the University of Calgary, the University of Alberta and the communities of Old Crow and Aklavik. The field party was based out of Aklavik, Northwest Territories, and daily flights via helicopter were made to various locations in the Richardson Mountains and the Mackenzie Delta. Five stratigraphic sections were targeted for detailed analysis including stratigraphic measurements, sedimentology and collection of material for various laboratory-based analyses upon return to the Geological Survey of Canada and University of Calgary.
