Holocene Environment Change Across Treeline, Mackenzie Delta Region
Principal Investigator: Pisaric, Michael FJ
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005
Summary: There are three main parts in the researchers' project: 1) investigating changes in vegetation cover in the Inuvik region during the past 10,000 years using fossil pollen and stomata preserved in lake sediment; 2) investigating the importance of disturb...

Paleohydrological and Paleoecological Reconstruction of the Mackenzie Basin Deltas
Principal Investigator: Wolfe, Brent BBW
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: This ongoing research project will formulate a history of the frequency and magnitude of floods, droughts, and corresponding ecological responses in the Mackenzie Basin Deltas over the past 1000 years. Fieldwork in 2004 will focus on continued sampling a...

Permafrost investigations, Mackenzie Delta region, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 2000 1999
Summary: This study investigates the physical and chemical characteristics of permafrost in the Mackenzie Delta region. The thawing of ice-rich permafrost can result in subsidence or terrain instability. Determination of thaw-sensitive terrain is required to pla...

Nature-based Tourism in the Mackenzie Delta Region: Potential and Pitfall. An Analysis of Stakeholder Perceptions
Principal Investigator: Dressler, Wolfram
Licenced Year(s): 1998
Summary: The objective of the study is to identify both the current and future positive and negative impacts of nature-based tourism within the Delta. The study will be carried out through the Inuvik Research Centre. Tourists will be canvassed at drop-off points and surveys will be mailed out according to visitor listings. Visitor surveys will be left at camp grounds and hotels. The same procedure will occ...

Biogeochemistry of Lakes in the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Lesack, Lance
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: Work based at the Inuvik Research Centre & will consist of field and lab work focused on 6 to 9 small lakes in the Delta near Inuvik. Field work will involve day trips by boat or helicopter to delta lakes. Two specific studies to be done include: 1) Evaluation of the rates of growth among groups of microscopic aquatic plants among a set of lakes that range from non-transparent to relatively transp...

Investigations of ground ice development in sediments of the Mackenzie Delta area.
Principal Investigator: Burn, Chris R
Licenced Year(s): 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991
Summary: The purpose is to collect samples of ground ice and to measure air, ground and lake temperatures. We use the information to help understand how the permafrost in the area has changed in the last few thousand years, in order to determine what might happen in the future....
