Long-term ecological and geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the Mackenzie Mountains
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The main objectives of this study are to: 1) determine the status of permafrost landforms in the study area, and 2) determine long-term recovery after abandonment of the CANOL No. 1 project. Both these objectives are part of long-term studies in the area that were initiated in 1974. Ultimately, this study will measure the amount of permafrost landform change and the temperature of the permafrost y...


Ecological & geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the western Mackenzie Mountains
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: Access during the summer is via the Yukon along the Canol Road through Macmillan Pass. In the spring and winter fixed wing access is arranged from Tulita. Automated microclimate stations powered by solar energy cells operate year-round. The base camp at Camp 222 includes solar cells to power laptop computers. Three field data collection visits are planned: May-June, July-August and February. ...


Palsa Evolution in Alpine Tundra (PEAT)
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 1992
Summary: The researcher and his team will determine the current status and contemporary characteristics of palsas (frozen peat mounds), and their environments within this mountainous study area. As well, they will quanititatively describe the processes affecting the evolution of these periglacial features and the potential changes in the status of these and related forms under global change models....


Studies of the Environmental Effects of Disturbances in the Subarctic (SEEDS)
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1990
Summary: The research is planned to see what happens after the surface of the land was changed by clearing of the trees and trenching of the soil in 1985 and 1986 and the spilling of crude-oil in 1988. Ways to fix or lessen these disturbances will be tested to see which are best. Many studies will be done including measurement of air and soil temperatures, wind speed, moisture, water movement, permafrost, ...
