Arctic Borderlands Ecological Knowledge Society - Community Based Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Ashthorn, Heather
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2017 2015 2013 2012 2011 2009 2008 2006
Summary: The goal of this project is to document local experiences of ecological change in the range of the porcupine caribou herd and share that knowledge for co-management. Community monitors will assist in each community and will be trained in Inuvik at the start of the monitoring season. Renewable Resource Council’s (RRCs) and Hunters and Trappers Committees (HTCs) are responsible for choosing a mon...


Northern Native Seed Development Field Trials
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006
Summary: The objective of this sub-project are: 1) to continue assessing the performance of native plants which were seeded and transplanted into field plots in 2006 and 2007; and, 2) to establish two new field plots at the Inuvik golf course with the same intent of monitoring native seed performance in a disturbed habitat. The research team intend to collect data regarding winter survival, seedling e...


Indigenous Knowledge in Protected Areas Management: Adaptation, Sustainability and Opportunities in the Circumpolar North.
Principal Investigator: Siivola, Delia C
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: Investigating this research problem will help develop more ethical practice in cooperative management by better pointing out the role of Indigenous knowledge in arrangements today, and promote better use of Indigenous knowledge for decision-making in the future. In addition to filling identified research gaps, the research questions will draw from, and align with, the Arctic Council self-identifie...


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...


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...


Shale Basin Evolution 2
Principal Investigator: Fiess, Kathryn M
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: This year’s objective is to complete the work at the selected locations by obtaining a full suite of rock samples for analysis, photograph each location, and measure natural radiation. At each site, the rock exposure will be photographed in detail. Natural radiation will be measured every half meter using a sensor without major disturbance of the rock face. At each location, rock samples weigh...


Metadata Driven by Indigenous Communities in Canada’s North: An Exploration
Principal Investigator: Farnel, Sharon
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The purpose of this project is to gain insight into what characterizes culturally appropriate metadata frameworks for digital libraries of cultural resources and what processes can be used for developing them. Specifically, the research team are seeking to better understand how Indigenous communities in northern Canada characterize culturally appropriate metadata frameworks for digital libraries o...


Analysis of microplastic in a wilderness river system
Principal Investigator: Horobin, Ric
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The Mackenzie River drainage basin is the second largest drainage basin in North America and is predominantly sparsely populated. The Peel and Wind River systems flow into the Mackenzie from an almost entirely uninhabited wilderness. The research team are undertaking a canoe expedition down the Wind, Peel and Mackenzie River system. The route starts in a region of almost no development (the Win...


Digital Mapping of Inuvialuit Archaeology & Heritage
Principal Investigator: Hodgetts, Lisa M
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The project will solicit input from the Inuvialuit community on how best to structure the interactive digital map to create meaningful virtual representations of archaeological sites and associated heritage information. It will pose the following questions to a wide range of adult and high school aged community members: 1. What types of information should be displayed in the map? 2. Who are th...


Wind Energy Monitoring at High Point
Principal Investigator: Dares, Matthew J
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to continue to measure the wind energy potential at the Inuvik High Point (approximately 6 km northeast of the Inuvik airport). This is part of an alternative energy study for the Inuvik area. Two full years of wind measurements and an economic analysis will be necessary to confirm the wind energy potential at the Inuvik High Point site. The study ...
