Evaluating the environmental impacts of permafrost mega-disturbances along the Dempster Highway, NWT
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of this research project is to document the extent of ecological change in impacted stream basins draining the eastern slope of the Richardson Mountains and to determine the mechanisms of slump initiation and stabilization. This study will focus on the Stoney Creek catchment, which runs parallel to the Dempster Highway and empties into the Peel River at Fort McPherson, NT. The catchm...

Environmental studies across the treeline
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005
Summary: The goals of this collaborative research program initiated by the Water Resources Division, DIAND are to: 1) enhance the understanding of environmental conditions in the Mackenzie Delta region; 2) examine the effects of global climate change on the Delta region; and 3) develop a knowledge base that can be directly applied to environmental decision-making in the context of planning, assessment and ...

Environmental Conditions at Abandoned Drilling Mud-Sumps and Surrounding Terrain in the Outer Mackenzie Delta (Kendall Island Bird Sanctuary)
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: The research team will collect data to assess environmental conditions at well sites and sumps abandoned during the 1970s and 1980s, and in nearby undisturbed terrain in the Kendall Island Bird Sanctuary (KIBS). Study site locations include: Taglu D-43, Taglu H-54, Taglu C-42, Niglintgak B-19, Kumak K-16, Kumak E-58 and Kumak J-06. Permafrost investigations will take place in the surrounding terr...

Pemafrost and Sump Investigations in the Mackenzie Delta Region
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 2000 1999
Summary: This research will investigate: A) the physical and chemical characteristics of permafrost in the Mackenzie Delta region to identify areas of ice-rich permafrost or thaw sensitive terrain. Second; B) the effect of permafrost degradation on water quality...

Ground-thermal Conditions at Abandoned Drilling Mud Sumps, Mackenzie Delta Region, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2003
Summary: In the Mackenzie Delta region, many of the drilling mud sumps constructed in the 1970s have partially or completely collapsed. The collapse of a sump can release contaminants previously immobilized in permafrost. The long-term degradation of many sumps...
