Long-term ecological and geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the Mackenzie Mountains, NWT
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The objectives of this research are: 1) to determine the status of permafrost landforms. Since 1990, automated microclimate stations powered by solar cells have been operated in the study area. One station is located at each of five permafrost landforms called palsas (low peat covered mounds with permafrost cores). The stations keep a record of permafrost and near-surface temperatures. Depth of...


Ecological and geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the Mackenzie Mountains, NWT.
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: The main study objectives 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. Access during the summer is via the Yukon along the Canol Road through Macmillan Pass. Access to the study area between Mile 53 and 113 will be via fixed wing originating from Tulita. Automated microclimate stations...


Studies of the Environmental Effects of Disturbances in the Subarctic
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1990
Summary: Access to the site will be along existing seismic lines from Tulita. Transport will involve helicopter, boat, ATV and foot. The research is planned to see what happens after the fire to the permafrost, soils, plants and animals. An unburned site will be monitored to provide comparison with the burned area. Many studies will be done, including measurement of air and soil temperatures, wind speed,...


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....


Reclamation of Simulated Transport Corridors in Subarctic Forests
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 1989 1988 1987
Summary: Dr. Peter Kershaw and his team will continue his work, begun in 1985, to assess and monitor the environmental characteristics of disburbed and undisturbed forest areas, in relation to revegetation and rehabilitation of pipeline corridors. His work will test impacts from northern crude oil spills....
