Dear Colleagues,

Apologies for any cross-posting.

The 2017 Canadian Geophysical Union (CGU) Annual Scientific Meeting will
take place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, May 28-31, 2017 (http:// We would like to invite you to contribute an
abstract to Session SE03:

Recent advances in Canadian Arctic Geoscience Research

Session Description:
Due to its remote location and correspondingly complex logistics,
large-scale detailed study of the Canadian Arctic has been relatively
limited in contrast to the southern and central Canadian landmass. However,
over the last decade, increased terrestrial geophysical instrumentation and
geologic investigation are shedding new insight on the complex tectonic
evolution of this northern region. Furthermore, as levels of sea ice
coverage continue to decrease over the summer months, access to offshore
regions will continue to expand. With such increased access and
corresponding instrumentation, longstanding questions elucidating the links
between surface geology and subsurface crust and mantle structure can now
be more thoroughly investigated. In this session we encourage submissions
from geological, geochemical and geophysical studies examining the tectonic
history and natural resource potential of the Canadian Arctic. In
particular we welcome innovative and multi-disciplinary approaches
addressing large-scale structure and evolution of the Arctic landmass and
its margins.
