Abstract

The orientation, size and shape of 578 lakes on Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula were obtained from 1 : 250 000 Canadian National Topographic Survey map sheets, using Arc View geographic information system. The coincidence of the modelled orientation and lake statistics supports the efficacy of cross wind-induced effects in orienting the lakes. The similar orientation of existing lakes and former basins suggests that these processes have been effective for at least several centuries
