Baseline monitoring of marine productivity and oceanography spanning the Northwest Passage using ships of opportunity
Principal Investigator: Fisher, Jonathan AD
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The first objective is to collect, analyze and report the findings from station-based and continuous plankton sampling and data on depth, temperature and salinity in the upper water column throughout Canada’s Northwest Passage. As a contributor to marine climate change research, this program will provide northern communities with the first regional-scale view of marine productivity—thereby providi...


Tracking Change: Local and Traditional Knowledge in Watershed Governance
Principal Investigator: Parlee, Brenda L
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The broad goal of the project is to create opportunities to collaboratively document and share local and traditional knowledge (LTK) about social-ecological change in the Mackenzie River Basin, Lower Mekong, and Lower Amazon Basins and determine its’ role in watershed governance. In 2016-17, the project will fund 8-10 community-based and collaborative research activities in the Mackenzie River Bas...


Development and Testing of Climate Change Monitoring Equipment in the Arctic
Principal Investigator: Layden, Ronald E
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: Data analysis will help the company to optimize the firmware, battery requirements and testing regimes needed and finalize products that can then be used in any type of remote and cold locations for extended periods with little or no equipment monitoring. Several eosFD devices (carbon dioxide monitoring equipment) will be tested to determine usability requirements and to select a winter test ...


Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Levesque, Keith R
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The central aim of the ArcticNet marine-based research program is to study on a long-term basis how climate induced changes are impacting the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, biogeochemical fluxes, and exchange processes across the ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interface in the Canadian Arctic Ocean. The knowledge generated from this multi- year program is integrated into regional impact studie...


Local and Traditional Ecological Knowledge of Beluga Whale (Delphinapterus leucas) Under Changing Climatic and Non-Climatic Conditions in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR)
Principal Investigator: Pearce, Tristan D
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: 1. describe the beluga-Inuvialuit linked social-ecological system; 2. characterize Inuvialuit traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) of beluga whale: ecology and behaviour, hunting techniques, and food preparation; 3. document current stresses affecting beluga and Inuvialuit hunters and adaptive responses; and, 4. identify opportunities for TEK ...


Permafrost and climate change, western Arctic Canada
Principal Investigator: Burn, Chris R
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998
Summary: The objective of this research is to understand the rate of ground warming in permafrost due to climate change and to measure the changes in ground surface characteristics that are occurring as a result. In particular, the research team are interested in changes in ground temperature, in the depth of the active layer, and in subsidence of the ground. The team are also interested in measuring how q...


Beaufort Sea Coastal Geoscience Research
Principal Investigator: Whalen, Dustin JR
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: The primary objective of this research continues to be driven towards the safe and sustainable industrial and community development of the Beaufort Sea coastal nearshore region. The research provides the means to improve knowledge of physical conditions in the coastal zone in order to help government agencies, corporations, and local residents understand, mitigate and reduce the impacts of natural...


A Longitudinal Approach to Community Vulnerability and Adaptation to Climate Change
Principal Investigator: Pearce, Tristan D
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The research aims to examine the processes and dynamism of climate change vulnerability in the Arctic through a longitudinal study in Ulukhaktok, NWT using fieldwork data from both 2005 and 2016. Specific objectives of this research are to: 1) document current exposure-sensitivities affecting Inuit subsistence hunting and adaptive strategies employed to manage them; 2) compare current exposure-sen...


Community-based food systems research in Yellowknife, NT
Principal Investigator: Spring, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objectives of this research is to support the implementation of the Yellowknife Food Charter and related local food activities in Yellowknife. This will be done through: 1) working with and supporting local groups (Ecology North and the Yellowknife Farmers Market) to identify community-based strategies to promote and implement local food production and develop a sustainable food system; 2) s...


Contemporary Dynamics of Forest-Tundra Ecotones in Central NWT
Principal Investigator: Danby, Ryan K
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: Objectives of this research project are to: 1) analyze Landsat satellite images to understand regional vegetation change over the past 30 years; 2) determine the timing of tree establishment as well as the climate influence on tree growth across the forest tundra transition zone over the past 300 years; and, 3. measure spruce seedling growth across the forest-tundra ecotone in relation to varia...
