Analyzing oceanic storm surge impacts within the coastal Mackenzie Delta, NWT
Principal Investigator: Moorman, Brian J
Licenced Year(s): 2010
Summary: The main objective of this study is to establish the degree of impact and spatial extent of specific oceanic storm surges within the coastal Mackenzie Delta over the past 40 years. This investigation will be completed by analyzing remote sensing imagery to create multiyear change maps. The resulting maps will then be correlated to historic water level and climate data and verified by field samples...

Northwest Territories Ice Patch Study - Geophysical Project
Principal Investigator: Moorman, Brian J
Licenced Year(s): 2007
Summary: Ice patches in the Mackenzie Mountains are areas of permanent ice that last through the summer months and often contain frozen caribou remains (mostly dung) and archaeological artifacts such as hunting weapons and tools. As the climate warms, these ice patches are beginning to melt, and there is a risk of losing the biological and archaeological information they contain. Using a technique known a...

Ground Ice Investigation
Principal Investigator: Moorman, Brian J
Licenced Year(s): 1998
Summary: The purpose of this research is to gain a better understanding of the origin, distribution properties of massive ground ice in the Mackenzie Delta. Knowing the size and shape of these bodies is one of the keys to determining how they form and how they will respond to climate change or terrain disturbance. The project would involve studying several sites where massive ground ice is present. The ai...

The origins and implications of tabular massive ground ice
Principal Investigator: Moorman, Brian J
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993
Summary: I plan to examine the characteristics of different types of ground ice. As the glaciers on Bylot Island retreat, thick layers of ice are buried beneath the ground. I wish to examine how this ice changes in its physical and chemical makeup when it becomes buried. Information on climate change will also be extracted from the ice....
