Marine Geohazard and Environmental Studies in the Southern Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, Scott R
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The research goals are to ascertain the formation of marine pock marks, which are circular depressions on the sea floor thought to have formed from the release of methane gas. The hypothesis is that these features are actively releasing gas to the atmosphere and that they are formed from the release of methane from degrading or thawing offshore permafrost. The research team intend to document the ...


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...


Marine Arctic Ecosystem Study (MARES)
Principal Investigator: Wiese, Francis
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016
Summary: BOEM issued a request that Stantec Inc. plan and execute a program during the 2016 field season to accomplish t the following objectives: 1) to collect physical, biological and chemical observations in the Eastern Beaufort Sea from moored and moving platforms; 2) to describe and analyze physical, biological and chemical observations acquired from the moving platforms; and, 3) to simultaneousl...


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...


Assessment of the Western Arctic Boundary Current
Principal Investigator: Pickart, Robert S.
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The main objective is to characterize the western Arctic Boundary current (which flows at the edge of the shelf), in order to understand its role in dictating shelf-basin exchange of water and materials and how it impacts the ecosystem of the region, including the occurrence of marine mammals. This project is a collaboration between US and Canadian scientists. The research team are using a comb...


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...


Beaufort Sea Coastal Restoration – Exploring the Potential for Using Indigenous Plant Species to Revegetate Coastline Affected by Permafrost Thaw Slumping
Principal Investigator: Hille, Erika C
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objectives of this project are to: 1) create a series of maps showing the thaw slump activity along the Beaufort Sea Coast near Tuktoyaktuk; 2) develop detailed water, vegetation, and ground temperature maps of the study sites using drones; 3) examine the effects of thaw slumping on the water quality of landscape-level runoff to the Beaufort Sea; 4) examine the effects of coastal erosion ...


Identification of hybrid copepods between C. finmarchicus and C. glacialis
Principal Investigator: Maps, Frederic FM
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: Project aims to identify hybrid between C. finmarchicus and C. glacialis and to estimate the geographical distribution of the hybrids. Sample will be collected from a ring net, mesh size 200 micrometer (µm). The net will be deployed from the back of the boat. It will be towed vertically at a speed of 30 m/min. The samples collected will be sieve through 200 µm stainless steel mesh to separate w...


Online Digital Hazard Maps of Landslides Along the Caribou Hills
Principal Investigator: Giff, Garfield
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The main objective of the project is to develop and disseminate through a geoportal, hazard maps and additional information to support the development and implementation of climate change adaptation strategies for the Caribou Hills. Within the geoportal, spatial and non-spatial information will be available to inform: regulations, the community of the possible danger, vulnerability assessments, th...
