      No name is more inextricably linked with the geology of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago than that of Ray Thorsteinsson. His death in Calgary on 23 April at the age of 91 brought to a close a career spanning 62 years, including 39 field seasons, devoted to the exploration and study of the Arctic Islands--a record of achievement unlikely ever to be duplicated.   During the Ellesmerian Orogeny in the latest Devonian to earliest Carboniferous (Mayr et al., ), deposits of the Franklinian Basin were deformed and resulted in a major Fold-and-Thrust Belt (Thorsteinsson and Tozer, ; Trettin and Balkwill, ; Higgins et al., ; Trettin, ) spanning E-W along the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and.

    Queen Elizabeth Islands, part of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, comprising all the islands north of latitude 74°30′ N, including the Parry and Sverdrup island groups. The islands, the largest of which are Ellesmere, Melville, Devon, and Axel Heiberg, have a total land area of more than , square miles (, square km).They were partially explored (–16) by the English.

Ellesmere Island (the largest), the Parry group (Melville, Bathurst, Devon, Prince Patrick, and Cornwallis islands), and the Sverdrup group (Axel Heiberg, Ellef Ringnes, Amund Ringnes, and many smaller islands) are found there.

The first detailed reports of sauropterygian remains from the Arctic island of Spitsbergen (Svalbard Archipelago) were published as short notes in and by the eminent Swedish. Two sites, Lava Camp in western Alaska and locality on Meighen Island (Canadian Arctic Archipelago), have yielded fragments referable to two fossil species of the helophoran subgenus.

1 Introduction. The Eurekan Orogeny is a Paleogene episode of deformation on the eastern portion of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and northern Greenland (Figure 1) [Thorsteinsson and Tozer,] that extends to the Lomonosov Ridge, Morris Jessup Rise, Yermak Plateau, and Svalbard [Dörr et al., ; Døssing et al., ; Døssing et al., ; Tegner et al., ; Tessensohn and.

The Arctic Archipelago, also known as the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, groups together all islands lying to the north of the Canadian continental mainland excluding Greenland (an autonomous territory of Denmark).

Situated in the northern extremity of North America and covering about 1, km 2 (, sq mi), this group of 36, islands in the Arctic Sea comprises much of the territory. Previous reports of plesiosaurs from the Canadian Arctic indicate the use of northern high latitude habitats by plesiosaurs as early as the Middle Jurassic (Russell,Sato and Wu, ) through the Early (Tozer and Thorsteinsson, ) and Late Cretaceous (Russell,Russell,Vandermark et al., ).

The Queen Elizabeth Islands, NWT/Nunavut, are a group of islands in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago lying north of a great bathometric trench composed of (east to west) Lancaster Sound, Barrow Strait, Viscount Melville Sound and M'Clure Strait.The part of the North American plate under consideration lies north of latitude 68°N and extends from the Coppermine Arch at longitude °W to the Romanzof Uplift at longitude °W.
