Near the north coast of DEVON Island (NU) at about north latitude, there occurs an unusual, roughly circular geologic structure originally called Haughton Dome; its origin puzzled scientists for many years. Finally, in Ray Thorsteinsson, Tom Frisch and colleagues from the Geological Survey of Canada determined that this structure is actually the remains of a meteorite IMPACT.

The oldest rock formation identified on Earth is found on the shoreline of Hudson Bay in Canada. This rock formed billion years ago. What information does a scientist need to more accurately determine the age of the rock. Canadian Arctic Islands contain exotic zircon derived from the Caledonian and Timanian Orogens.

This variance of sediment provenance indicates that the eastern Canadian Arctic Islands was isolated from non-Laurentian or Caledonian detritus, and that sources of the exotic Timanian zircon reconstruct farther west along the by: 9.
