Permafrost monitoring and collection of baseline terrain information in the Mackenzie Valley Corridor, NWT
Principal Investigator: Smith, Sharon S
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to provide baseline knowledge of permafrost and terrain conditions (specifically ground temperature and permafrost active layer thickness) and improve characterization of terrain sensitivity in the Mackenzie Valley; to monitor ground temperature and active layer to detect changes in permafrost conditions resulting from surface disturbance or climate cha...


Enhancement of Permafrost Monitoring Network and collection of baseline terrain information in Mackenzie Valley Corridor - Deh Cho Region
Principal Investigator: Smith, Sharon S
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The Geological Survey of Canada maintains a network of active layer and permafrost temperature monitoring sites in the Mackenzie region in order to document the response of permafrost conditions to climate change. Gaps exist in the network in the permafrost zones north of Norman Wells, the Mackenzie Delta region, and on shorelines and coastlines. Enhancement of the network is essential to provide ...


Enhancement of Permafrost Monitoring Network and Collection of Baseline Terrain Information in the Mackenzie Valley Corridor - Gwich'in Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Smith, Sharon S
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: Gaps exist in the Mackenzie monitoring network in the permafrost zones north of Norman Wells, the Mackenzie Delta region and shorelines and coastlines. Enhancement of the network is essential to provide baseline information for developments such as pipelines, highways and power lines, and to assess the impact of such development and/or climate change on the environment. In this project, temperatur...


Enhancement of Permafrost Monitoring Network and Collection of Baseline Terrain Information in the Mackenzie Valley Corridor - K'asho Got'ine District, Sahtu Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Smith, Sharon S
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: Twelve sampling sites in the K'asho Got’ine District of the Sahtu Settlement Area have been selected for this project, with preferred locations chosen near existing winter roads and the C.N.T. trail for continuous site accessibility and to minimize disturbance to the environment. One or two boreholes up to 20 m in depth will be drilled at each site in order to capture local environmental variabili...
