Principal Investigator:Bunn, Andy G Licenced Year(s):
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...

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...

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...

Principal Investigator:Martin, Sandy D Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Armitage, Derek Licenced Year(s):2005
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...
Principal Investigator:Burn, Chris R Licenced Year(s):1997
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....
Principal Investigator:Mackay, J. Ross Licenced Year(s):1997
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....
Principal Investigator:English, Michael C Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Dixon, O.A. Licenced Year(s):1993
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....
