The objectives of the research are: (1) measure the spectral properties (i.e. how light is absorbed and reflected) and biochemical constituents (e.g. chlorophyll, water, nitrogen, carbon) of arctic vegetation at the ground-level in various vegetation communities across the Western Arctic (e.g. low-arctic to high-arctic); (2) investigate the potential of using satellite based multi-angular imaging ...

The long-term goal of this research is to develop a model of the interacting biogeochemical and hydrologic processes that control the nutrient balance and primary productivity of lakes in the Mackenzie Delta region, and ultimately, a more general model for lakes associated with the flood plains and deltas of major world rivers. Work based at the Inuvik Research Centre will consist of field and lab...

This study will address the impact that muskoxen are having on sedge meadows (the habitat that is important for their survival in the Thomsen River valley). In this study, I will examine the response of sedge meadow plants to the effects of grazing by muskoxen. I will monitoring the growth and chemical makeup of plants in 3 situations: (1) unprotected plots subject to muskoxen grazing; (2) artif...

The Researcher will compare the levels of enzyme variation from populations of umbilicate species from the Arctic as well as from the southern limit of their ranges in southeastern USA. The objective will be to ascertain whether there is any correlation between the level of variability in enzyme patterns and latitude....

The Researcher will continue an ongoing program in Sverdrup Pass: Ecology of polar oases. The study will assist in understanding the origin, development, maintenance and future of these isolated ecosystems in the midst of a polar desert....

The Researcher will continue to study the distribution of phytoplankton and zooplankton in the Barrow Strait area. The herbivourous plankton species which feed on the marine algae and phytoplankton is the first step in the arctic food chain. It is the herbivorous plankton which is the source of food for other animals which ultimately provides food for all other higher arctic animals....
