Greening of the Boreal Forest
Principal Investigator: Bunn, Andy G
Licenced Year(s): 2009
Summary: This licence is being issued for the scientific research application No.1089. The overarching goal of this research is to understand the effects of temperature and moisture variability on growth of forest vegetation in the southern Arctic, and to use the relationship between temperature/moisture and tree growth to construct a model of patterns of greening and browning in the forest and forest-t...


Arctic Analogues of Utopia and western Elysium Planitia, Mars
Principal Investigator: Soare, Richard J
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: This project’s objective is to take multiple, small .25kg samples of the active layer of permafrost in areas where patterned ground and thermokarst are present. The data gained will help the researchers in their efforts to understand possible cold climate processes in the northern hemisphere of Mars. The researchers intend to visit areas in the vicinity of Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk where polygonal...


Fort Resolution Traditional Knowledge Survey for the Pine Point Pilot Project
Principal Investigator: Swisher, Sara S
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2006
Summary: The purpose of this study is to obtain traditional knowledge from Fort Resolution aboriginal residents, focussing on individuals aged 45 years or older. The information will be used for planning, and incorporated into the Developer’s Assessment Report (DAR) as required by the Mackenzie Valley Environmental Impact Review Board's (MVEIRB) Environmental Assessment Process. Interviews will be ut...


Hay River Metis Traditional Knowledge Survey for the Pine Point Pilot Project
Principal Investigator: Swisher, Sara S

The information will be used for planning, and incorporated into the Developer’s assessment Report (DAR) as required by the Mackenzie Valley Environmental Impact Review Board’s (MVEIRB) Environmental Assessment Process. Interviews will be utiliz...


2006 Traditional Knowledge Study in Fort Good Hope
Principal Investigator: Martin, Sandy D
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The study marks a continuation of Traditional Knowledge work initiated, as part of the Mackenzie Gas Project, with the community of Fort Good Hope in 2003. Local knowledge and technical/scientific research, in combination with a synthesis of existing technical information, is being used to develop a suitable knowledge base for planning, assessment of impacts and development of environmental protec...


Traditional Knowledge Study of Flood and Climatic History in the Slave River Delta, NWT
Principal Investigator: Armitage, Derek
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The Slave River Delta is one of a series of important delta ecosystems in the Mackenzie Basin. The adjacent community of Fort Resolution depends on its high biological productivity and diversity for both food and resources. Recent and predicted changes i...


Investigation 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 thousands years, in order to determine what might happen in the future....


Permafrost Studies: Western Arctic Coast
Principal Investigator: Mackay, J. Ross
Licenced Year(s): 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1989
Summary: The researcher will continue studies on the origin of permafrost, the ice found within permafrost and processes that help to create the present geocryologic environment. These studies will be conducted on Garry Island, Illisarvik, 20 km southwest of Tuktoyaktuk and at Paulatuk....


Climatic Variability and Hunting and Trapping Success in the Pond Inlet Region.
Principal Investigator: English, Michael C
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: This study will examine how climate influences the success of hunting and trapping in the Pond Inlet area. The amount of snowfall and air temperature varies from year to year. Increased snowfall may change the normal range of the cariboo and a very cold winter may result in thick sea ice, affecting the distribution of sea breathing holes and number of polar bear found hunting. The researcher wil...


Upper Silurian Carbonate Buildups of Southwestern Ellesmere and Northwestern Devon Islands
Principal Investigator: Dixon, O.A.
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1990 1988
Summary: In the Arctic Islands, the research will study sedimentary rocks and fossils that were formed more than 400 million years ago in warm tropical seas. It is hoped the study will assist in interpreting ancient environments in more detail, for example suggesting water depths, temperatures and climate....
