Using the past to inform the future: A paleoecological perspective of the impacts of drought and fire on lakes, permafrost and forests
Principal Investigator: Pisaric, Michael FJ
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The objectives of this research are to examine the frequency and severity of past wildfire and drought (drought-like) conditions in the southern Northwest Territories. Specifically, the research team will examine the following questions: 1) how frequent and severe have fires been in the past; 2) are fires becoming more frequent/severe due to the impacts of climate change; 3) what impact does wildf...

Environmental change in the 20th century, Mackenzie Delta region, Northwest Territories.
Principal Investigator: Pisaric, Michael FJ
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005
Summary: Climate change is expected to have the greatest impacts in northern regions. Permafrost degradation is a likely outcome of warming temperatures. As temperatures increase and permafrost begins to melt, there is likely to be significant impacts on aquatic communities as nutrients and contaminants accumulated in permafrost are released into lakes. This study will examine the impact of permafrost degr...
