Deglaciation of the NW Laurentide Ice Sheet and opening of the Mackenzie valley
Principal Investigator: Froese, Duane G
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: In this project, the research team aim to improve the chronology of the retreat of the Laurentide Ice Sheet from the eastern foot of the Mackenzie Mountains and the Mackenzie River valley that began around 14,000 years ago, and to gain better understanding of the dynamics of how the ice left the region and development of large lakes that occupied the valleys. The research team will attempt to quan...


Deh Cho Region Wetland Mapping Project
Principal Investigator: Merchant, Michael A
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The main objective of this project is to develop wetland inventory for south western NWT that will be used to provide a baseline for many kinds of planning (including updates to the land use planning processes) and research in support of biodiversity conservation and sustainable management of habitat. Specific objectives are to: 1) develop and use computer-based methods to produce wetland maps wi...


Short and long term effects of forest fires on the stability of carbon pools in the arctic permafrost and subarctic forests (ARCTICFIRE)
Principal Investigator: Koster, Kajar
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2015
Summary: The aim of this project is to study the short term and long term effects of different fire intensities on the decomposition of soil organic matter (SOM) in northern boreal forests under changing fire regimes. The objectives are to: 1) explore the short and long term effects of forest fires with different intensity on above- and belowground biomasses; 2) explore changes in albedo, snow depths an...


Local Food Procurement in Fort Providence, Northwest Territories: Examining Community Resilience and Adaptive Capacity to Environmental Change
Principal Investigator: Ross, Paulina P
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The purpose of this research is to support food security, promote community resilience and encourage adaptive capacity for northern communities. Research outcomes could have potential implications for the community of Fort Providence, as findings will help direct both top-down and bottom-up approaches to local food procurement. Suggested policy recommendations based on community perspectives will ...


NASA ABoVE Airborne Campaign 2018 Addendum
Principal Investigator: Miller, Charles E
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The extended Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) Study Area includes most of northwestern North America west of Hudson Bay and north and east of the coastal mountain ranges. The core study area includes 4 jurisdictions: Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut. It encompasses the variability in the key types of ecosystems that are both unique to arctic and boreal regions in Nor...


Food systems and community well-being in Kakisa, NT
Principal Investigator: Spring, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: 1. foster training and knowledge sharing to ensure that traditional foods continue to provide an important component of affordable, sustainable healthy food system for Ka'a'gee Tu First Nation; 2. conduct a detailed needs assessment for a food security action plan; 3. increase knowledge and capacity to grow and produce food products while explori...


Permafrost mapping and food security vulnerability assessment in Jean Marie River First Nation Lands
Principal Investigator: Laurent, Cyrielle C
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The proposed project will build on the proven methodology used during previous permafrost studies in Jean Marie River First Nation (JMRFN). It aims to extend the vulnerability map by including the McGill and Deep Lake area. These lakes are traditionally and culturally very important to JMRFN (for example, the area surrounding these lakes is also used repeatedly by caribou year after year) and the ...


Global and regional environmental signals of the Mississippian/Pennsylvanian strata in the Liard Basin Northwest Canada
Principal Investigator: Fedorowski, Jerzy A.
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The principal aim of this project is to examine the settlement, development and decline of the fossil corals as a response to environmental conditions in the Liard region during Mississippian to early Pennsylvanian times (358.9 to 314.6 million years ago). The study will be conducted against the background of the world-wide expansion of corals in the Viséan age (346.7 - 330.9 million years ago) an...


Bryophytes of southwest Northwest Territories waterfall areas
Principal Investigator: Doubt, Jennifer
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objective is to increase knowledge of bryophytes (e.g., mosses, liverworts) and (incidentally, where possible) lichens in the Northwest Territories. Waterfall areas can offer a wide diversity of microhabitats (featuring a large variety of substrates, moisture and light levels, and exposures) within a relatively small area. Bryophyte species and communities are often associated with specific...


Impacts of 10 years of climate warming on forests and peatlands in the Dehcho
Principal Investigator: Errington, Ruth
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: After 10 years of warming climate conditions, the Canadian Fire Service is leading a field project to re-measure a series of permanent monitoring plots to identify any changes to the forest stand structure, tree growth rates, plant community composition, tree, shrub, herb, and lichen biomass. These changes will be associated with climate trends and environmental factors such as soil type, presence...
