Physical Volcanology and Hydrothermal Alteration of the Footwall Rocks to the Archean Sturgeon Lake Massive Sulfide Deposit, Northwest Ontario

Jongewaard, Peter K (1989-01)
The footwall rocks beneath the Archean Sturgeon Lake massive sulfide deposit consist of a 3 km thick sequence of steep north-dipping subaqueous volcanic and volcaniclastic rocks intruded by mafic dikes and sills. Preserved ...

Physical Volcanology and Hydrothermal Alteration of the Footwall Rocks to the Archean Mattabi Massive Sulfide Deposit, Northwestern Ontario

Walker, Jamieson Scott (1993-05)
The hostrocks to the Archean-aged Mattabi volcanogenic massive sulfide deposit consist of a steeply dipping 2 km homoclinal sequence of extensively altered dominantly pyroclastic rocks. These rocks form the central section ...

Reconstructing the bay-side geomorphic evolution of a freshwater baymouth bar in response to lake level change using three dimensional (3D) ground-penetrating radar (GPR) data

Kremmin, Todd (2019-11)
Situated at the southwestern tip of Lake Superior, Minnesota and Wisconsin Points' form a 16-kilometer baymouth bar between Duluth, Minnesota and Superior, Wisconsin, providing the breakwater for the largest and farthest ...

A tunnel speleothem based stable-isotope record of Atlantic Multi-Decadal Oscillation forcing of precipitation in the Midlands, United Kingdom

Shull, Carolyn (2019-08)
Cave speleothems are an established source of preserved data used in paleo-environmental reconstruction, as climate and land use information can be recorded in the carbon and oxygen isotopes. Speleothems in the tunnels of ...

Isotopic Signatures of Precipitation and Streams along the North Shore of Lake Superior

Stoll, Kinzey (2019-06)
Lake Superior is the largest of the Great Lakes. Its size impacts precipitation along the North and South Shores, but the magnitude of its effects on the North Shore are unknown. Using stable isotopes of δ2H and δ18O to ...
