Active Layer Monitoring Network in the Mackenzie Valley
Principal Investigator: Nixon, Fredrick M.
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The goal of this research is to understand how the active layer, which overlies the permafrost and thaws and re-freezes every year, will respond to environmental change, including climate warming. Active layer thickness can influence hunting, fishing, gathering and forestry through vegetation and soil conditions. The character of the active layer affects transportation and construction, while chan...


Active Layer Monitoring Network in the Mackenzie Valley – Snow Monitoring Component
Principal Investigator: Nixon, Fredrick M.
Licenced Year(s): 2008
Summary: The objective of this project is to conduct snow surveys at selected sites in the Mackenzie Delta, related to permafrost studies. Snow surveys will be carried out at three selected sites in the Delta during early April. These are Circumpolar Active Layer Monitoring Program sites. There is a grid marked on these locations, where the researchers will be measuring the snow pack and snow density. M...
