Periglacial and paleoglacial investigation of the Haughton impact structure and (148506)
Proposal Status: Conformity Determination Issued
Project Overview
Type of application: New
Proponent name: Mr. Etienne Godin
Company: University of Western Ontario, Dept. of Earth Sciences
Schedule:
Start Date: 2017-07-17
End Date: 2017-07-31
Operation Type: Annual
Project Description:
The objective of this project is to carry out comparative planetary geology aimed at refining our understanding of the origin and dynamics of gullies and subglacial channels. These linear landforms, quite visible on high-resolution imagery either in the Arctic and Mars, have great implications regarding the role of water in arid and cold environments.
