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 Treeline
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005
Summary: This study will include: 1) monitoring permafrost conditions in the Mackenzie Delta region; 2) examining freeze-back of the active layer and associated strength properties of freezing soil; 3) examining the influence of shrub removal on frozen ground and snow conditions at abandoned drilling-mud sumps; 4) investigating effectiveness of different soil sampling protocols on delineating contaminants ...


Environmental conditions at abandoned drilling mud-sumps in the Kendall Island Bird Sanctuary, Mackenzie Delta Region
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: Since the 1970's, the oil and gas industry has drilled at least 19 exploratory wells in the Kendall Island Bird Sanctuary (KIBS), but there is a shortage of field data describing environmental conditions at the well-sites and drilling-mud sumps. In Marc...


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...


Near-surface ground ice in sediments of the Mackenzie Delta region, NWT
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 2000 1999
Summary: This project investigates the the distribution and amount of near-surface ice in sediments of the Mackenzie delta area near Inuvik. Sites near Inuvik will be accessed via road and sampled using a hand held power auger. Soil cores will be removed and taken to the Inuvik Research Center for subsequent examination. The thickness of permafrost will be measured by near-surface water jet drilling which ...
