Congratulations go out to Mélanie Bouchard for successfully defending her MSc Geology thesis titled “Litho- and chemostratigraphy of the Lower to Middle Cambrian Mount Clark, Mount Cap, and Saline River formations in Hornaday River Canyon, Carcajou Range, and Norman Range, Northwest Territories, Canada”.
Prior to undertaking her MSc in Geology in the midst of the Canadian Arctic, Mélanie had earned her BSc Earth Sciences, also at Laurentian University.
Mélanie’s MSc project was funded by the Geologic Survey of Canada’s GEM Program, and by Natural Resources Canada’s Polar Continental Shelf Program. Her defence committee were Harquail School of Earth Sciences professors Elizabeth Turner and Alessandro Ielpi, and Robert MacNaughton from the Geological Survey of Canada.
