Holocene Glacier Fluctuations in Nahanni National Park Reserve, Northwest Territories, Canada
Principal Investigator: Menounos, Brian p
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The objective of the study is to date the formation of terminal moraines fronting Brintnell Glacier, and analyze the glacigenic signature within the sediments of Glacier Lake in order to develop a robust chronology of glacier change on the Brintnell-Bologna Icefield. This decade to century scale chronology will be compared to regional-to-hemispheric climate proxies to evaluate the climate sensitiv...


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...


Beaufort Sea Coastal Geoscience Research 2013
Principal Investigator: Whalen, Dustin JR
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: The primary objective of this research is to ensure safe and sustainable industrial and community development by improving the understanding of coastal and nearshore seabed processes and properties. The research provides the means to improve the knowledge of physical conditions in the coastal zone in order to help government agencies, corporations, and local residents understand, mitigate and redu...


North Slave Permafrost Study: Characterizing and Predicting Discontinuous Permafrost for Climate Change Adaptation
Principal Investigator: Wolfe, Stephen A
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: This activity will describe and predict the occurrence of discontinuous permafrost in the northern Great Slave Lake region to assist in planning, development and maintenance of community and industry infrastructure. Future changes in climate will affect permafrost distribution, temperatures and geotechnical conditions. It is anticipated that different landscapes across the region will exhibit vary...


Permafrost vulnerability assessment and landscape changes related to climate change in the Jean Marie River First Nation
Principal Investigator: Ireland, Margaret
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: The objectives of this project are to: 1. Gather Traditional, local, and scientific knowledge and information concerning environmental and cultural changes related to climate change and permafrost degradation. 2. Conduct a focus group mapping session, a geological survey, and an air photo survey of Jean Marie River (JMR) and the surrounding area to locate vulnerable areas of land to climate c...


ArcticNet: an Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic.
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Martin
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
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. Ultimately, the knowledge generated from this multi-year program will be integrated into region...


Geological conditions affecting industrial and community development in the coastal and nearshore regions of the western Canadian Arctic - year 4/4
Principal Investigator: Solomon, Steven M
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009 2008 2007
Summary: The western Arctic coast is among the most rapidly changing coastlines in the world and one of the most sensitive to climate change. The objective is 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 changes and industrial or community development. Spring...


Land Management Problems in Hydrocarbon Development Areas with Ice-Rich Permafrost: Detection and Assessment
Principal Investigator: Pollard, Wayne H
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009
Summary: This licence is being issued for the scientific research application no. 946. The objective of this research is to better understand the distribution of underground ice in hydrocarbon development areas. By identifying how much ice there is, the researcher wants to study how oil/gas activities and climate change could affect the land. Underground ice is one of the most unpredictable and problema...


Hazards, Sea-level Rise, and Climate Change Impacts on Arctic Coasts
Principal Investigator: Forbes, Donald L
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The primary objectives of the project are to; 1) monitor coastal stability and the processes which affect it (winds, waves, sea ice, etc); 2) map coastal features, sediment properties, and ice conditions in the nearshore regions of the Mackenzie Delta an...


Collaborative research: A sequence, chemo- and biostratigraphic study of Late Early Cambrian rocks, southern Selwyn Basin, Mackenzie Mountains, NWT.
Principal Investigator: Pope, Michael
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The Early Cambrian is an important time in Earth history for it records the widespread radiation of animals during significant climatic, sea level, and tectonic changes. This project will be a stratigraphic, geochemical, and paleontological study of high...
