Colour Lake, Axel Heiberg Island, N.W.T. (79 25 N; 90 45 W), remained largely ice covered from autumn to summer This is a relatively rare event. Observations and measurements of the thickness and specific conductance of the lake ice cover were made at the end of the summer and again in the following spring.

The M'Clure Strait (sometimes rendered McClure Strait) is a strait on the edge of the Canadian Northwest forms the northwestern end of the Parry Channel which extends east all the way to Baffin Bay and is thus a possible route for the Northwest Passage; the strait was named for Robert McClure, an Irish Arctic explorer serving in the Royal Navy.

In these northern regions the department cooperated with the McGill Arctic Research Station (on Axel Heiberg Island) and the McGill Subarctic Research Station (in Quebec-Labrador), facilitating regular field trips for undergraduates and graduates to both sites.
