Long-term ecological and geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the Mackenzie Mountains, NWT
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: Permafrost landforms are shrinking in response to climate warming. The researchers want to measure the amount of change each year and to measure the temperature of the permafrost year-round. In addition they want to measure the rate of plant recovery on disturbed areas resulting from the CANOL Project (1942-45). Access during the summer is via the Yukon along the Canol Road through Macmillan ...


Ecological and Geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the Mackenzie Mountains, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: The main objectives of this study are to: 1. determine the status of permafrost land forms in the study area, and 2. determine the 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. Base camp is owned by Old Squaw Lodge at Camp 222. Beyond the base camp mountain bikes and foot will be the means ...


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 will continue to monitor the effects of disturbance to a site 10 km north of Fort Norman. Trees were cleared and the soil was trenched in 1985 and 1986, and crude oil was spilled in 1988. The researchers are monitoring air and soil temperatures, wind speed, moisture, water movement, permafrost and snow characteristics, plants and animals in order to understand how the ecosystem resp...


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: Over the past several years, Dr. Kershaw has been trying to find out the best way to make the plants grow back after they have been removed to build a pipeline. He is also looking at ways to keep permafrost areas from melting if the insulating plant cover is removed....


Licence #4095
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 1984
Summary: Dempster Highway disturbance studies determine the state of natural recovery on human disturbances of various ages; (this includes the botanical and wildlife habitat characteristics). Also, to continue monitoring of the species and population characterisics of small mammals in 12 tundra habitats and continue monitoring of small mammal habitat selection for the 4th year of the study....
