Structure, Carbon Dynamics, and Silvichronology of Boreal Forests
Principal Investigator: Osawa, Akira
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The objectives of the research are two-fold. First is to estimate structure, growth, and production of forest stands in northwestern Canada by applying a stand reconstruction and 3D ground-based laser techniques as well as stand measurement, aboveground litter collection, and find root sampling. Second is to examine the relationship between climate change in the high latitudinal regions and the pa...


Pliocene landscape and paleoclimate change on Prince Patrick Island
Principal Investigator: Gosse, John C
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The objectives of this research are to: 1) collect pieces of wood to measure tree rings and carbon and oxygen isotopes to determine past climate (mainly average summer temperature); 2) collect sand samples to date the layers which contain the wood and evidence of faulting, so the team can date they can be dated to show how old the wood and faults may be; 3) map the faults and tilting of the ...


Biogeochemistry of Lakes in the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Lesack, Lance
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: The objective of this research project are to: 1) improve the understanding of microbial carbon-processing in Mackenzie Delta lakes and how it is affected by the changing water levels; and, 2) to decipher the impact of water level changes on the ability of the Mackenzie Delta to affect riverine nutrient flow to the ocean. This work will help resolve what drives microbial communities in Mackenzi...


Quantifying carbon fluxes and budgets of boreal forest-tundra landscapes under the influence of rapidly changing permafrost regimes
Principal Investigator: Sonnentag, Oliver
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The project of the present application is the continuation of year-round eddy covariance measurements of carbon, water and energy fluxes at Trail Valley Creek and Havikpak Creek, established in 2013. The key methodology is tower-mounted micrometeorological measurements around the eddy covariance technique using an open-path infra-red gas analyzer and a sonic anemometer. These measurements are s...


ARCTICFIRE
Principal Investigator: Pumpanen, Jukka S
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The aim of the ARCTICFIRE project is to study the long term effects of natural forest fires on the decomposition of soil organic matter in the northern arctic and subarctic forests. The research team will study the changes in size and quality of soil carbon and nitrogen pools and fluxes after forest fires and their underlying processes in the arctic and subarctic zone, especially the interactions ...


Airborne Observations in Support of NETCARE
Principal Investigator: Abbatt, Jon
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The NETCARE observations will be covered the range from Longyearbyen, Svalbard (European Arctic) until Inuvik (NWT – Polar 6 aircraft only) and Barrow (Alaska – Polar 5 aircraft only). The observational platforms will be two aircraft: 1) the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) POLAR 5, a modified DC-3 aircraft; and 2) the AWI POLAR 6, also a modified DC-3 aircraft. The two platforms will be coordin...


Soil Carbon in the Mackenzie Delta Region
Principal Investigator: Phillips, Marcus R
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The goal of this research is to understand how landscape processes influence the quantity and quality of soil carbon in the Mackenzie Delta Region. Particular attention will be paid to the depth distribution of soil carbon and how it is affected by differences in vegetation and soil forming processes. Key environmental differences that will be examined include forest vs. tundra and delta vs. uplan...


Arctic Peatland Carbon and Holocene Warm Climates
Principal Investigator: Beilman, David W
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The research team seek to understand carbon dynamics during warm climate intervals in the Arctic: the Holocene Thermal Maximum (HTM) the warmest pre-industrial interval ranging in timing from 10 ka (thousands of years before present) with maximum seasonality to 6 ka with reduced seasonality, and the Medieval Climate Anomaly (MCA) at ~1 ka with similar seasonality as today. By studying peat cores f...


Solar degradation of dissolved organic carbon in Mackenzie Delta lakes and river channels
Principal Investigator: Tank, Suzanne E
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: This study will examine the solar degradation of riverine dissolved organic carbon (DOC) to carbon dioxide (CO2) throughout the Mackenzie River Delta. During the spring runoff peak just before summer solstice, ice-jam flooding inundates the Delta with river water, which spreads out in a relatively thin layer over an extended area and is exposed to 24-hour Arctic sunlight. Because river flows are...


Recent changes in carbon source-sink relationships and greenhouse gas emissions in forest and peatland ecosystems along the Mackenzie Valley region of Canada
Principal Investigator: Bhatti, Jagtar
Licenced Year(s): 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: 1. map and assess changes in the distribution and composition of forest and peatland ecosystems due to climate changes; 2. estimate carbon storage (and variation) in boreal to arctic ecoregions of the Mackenzie valley; and 3. assess interannual and seasonal variations and key processes controlling carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) dynamics. ...
