        Lake water was collected in 15 L polyvinyl chloride (PVC) bags with minimal atmospheric interaction from a m deep lake near Shellabear Point, Melville Island, Northwest Territories, Canada. Sample bags were aerated through a closed water loop for 60 min to allow sufficient radon to equilibrate in a coupled air by:   Read "Field observations of recent transgression on northern and eastern Melville Island, western Canadian Arctic Archipelago, Geomorphology" on DeepDyve, the largest online rental service for scholarly research with thousands of academic publications available at your fingertips.

      In , the Geological Survey of NSW released high-resolution digital mapping data of the coastal Quaternary deposits of New South Wales as part of the Comprehensive Coastal Assessment. Since then a series of 17 hard copy map products was produced from the digital data for the entire coast. Melville Island is shared by the Northwest Territories, which is responsible for the western half of the island, and Nunavut, which is responsible for the eastern half. The mountains on Melville Island, some of the largest in the western Canadian Arctic, reach heights of one kilometre.

      Melville Island is a member of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, Canada with an area of 42, km 2 (16, sq mi). No one lives on Melville Island. It is the 33rd biggest island in the world and Canada's 8th biggest island. Melville Island is shared by the Northwest Territories, which has the western half of the island, and Nunavut, which has the eastern half.   Study areas have ranged from the Yukon coast and Mackenzie Delta area to the central and eastern Arctic, Hudson Bay, Lake Winnipeg, eastern Québec, the Atlantic Provinces, and Ireland. In the mid s, I was seconded to the South Pacific Applied Geoscience Commission, conducting applied research on coastal management issues in Fiji, Kiribati.
