Investigating the Effects of Winter Overland Travel in sub-Arctic Boreal Forest
Principal Investigator: Kanigan, Julian
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011
Summary: In discontinuous permafrost of the southern NWT, cleared transportation corridors, such as seismic lines, have recently been associated with permafrost loss, increased soil moisture and vegetation changes. Permafrost loss can lead to ground subsidence, infrastructure instability and the release of stored carbon into the atmosphere. The project team will test whether seismic lines can be constructe...


Old Canadian National Railbed and Highway 5 Soil Sampling, Hay River area
Principal Investigator: Kanigan, Julian
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009
Summary: The objective of this research is to investigate metals levels, particularly lead and zinc, and hydrocarbons in soils near the old CN rail bed to Pine Point mine, and Highway 5 to the Tamerlane R-190 advanced exploration site. Specific objectives are to 1) Determine levels of metals, particularly lead and zinc, and hydrocarbons on and adjacent to the old CN railbed; 2) Establish levels of metals, ...


Variation of near-surface ground temperatures in spruce forests, Mackenzie Delta, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Kanigan, Julian
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: An understanding of near-surface ground temperatures will provide a baseline to assess change and identify sensitive areas. The objective of this project is to determine the variation of near-surface ground temperatures within the Mackenzie Delta. Investigations have identified four spruce forest communities in the delta based on composition: spruce-alder-bearberry, spruce-feathermoss, spruce-crow...
