Noell Lake Ice Study - Hydro-ecological Responses of Arctic Tundra Lakes to Climate Change and Landscape Perturbation
Principal Investigator: Wrona, Frederick J
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The overall objective of this research component is to improve knowledge on lake ice and its effect on food webs/productivity in small Arctic lake systems in order to better predict changes that could occur under changing climate. The methodology described here pertains to research activities involving the automated ice buoy and instrumented subsurface mooring system for continuous monitoring o...

O-buoy measurements of ozone, carbon dioxide and bromine oxide over frozen surface of Hudson Bay and Arctic Ocean
Principal Investigator: Bottenheim, Jan W
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The goal of this project is to take part in establishment of a long-term observation network to measure concentrations of two important greenhouse gases (ozone and carbon dioxide) as well as bromine oxide. Bromine oxide is a key chemical reagent determining the presence of ozone accompanied with full set of meteorological data and detailed geographic information across the Arctic Ocean and Hudson ...

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...

Treeline Dynamics in Western Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Green, Scott
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2008
Summary: The project will examine past tree growth patterns at the northern treeline in Western Canada as a baseline to predict future growth responses to climate change. Additionally, the researchers will examine tree regeneration and plant associations at the northern treeline. Annual tree rings represent a growth response to local climate. Wide growth rings represent good growing conditions, and nar...

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: This project is aimed at examining coastal change in the Beaufort Sea region. The primary objectives of the research are: 1) monitoring coastal stability and the processes which affect it (winds, waves, sea ice, etc.), 2) mapping coastal features, sediment properties, and ice conditions in the near-shore regions of the Mackenzie Delta and at coastal monitoring sites, 3) monitoring vertical ground...

Sensitivities of high-latitude lakes to climatic & development disturbances
Principal Investigator: Prowse, Terry D
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005
Summary: Climate change in the Canadian Arctic is expected to have far-reaching impacts on the hydrology and ecology of freshwater ecosystems. These systems are particularly sensitive to climate change because many cryospheric and hydrologic processes respond to relatively small in changes in climate, which in turn affect landscape biogeochemical processes and associated ecological responses. Hence, the pu...

Modelling the Evaporation and Heat Balance of Great Bear Lake
Principal Investigator: Rouse, Wayne R
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005 2004
Summary: This is the second year of a study that measures the water balance and thermal regimes of Great Bear Lake so that the researchers can determine the linkages between the lake's behaviour and the atmosphere above. Lake temperatures will be measured with se...

Snow accumulation/runoff in high latitude permafrost basins
Principal Investigator: Marsh, Philip
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1990
Summary: The primary objective of this project is to improve understanding of the fluxes of water and energy in northern regions, and to develop improved computer models of these processes. The Trail Valley Creek site will be accessed by helicopter and snowmobile...

Quaternary Glacial Geology and Sea-Level History of Melville Island, Western High Arctic
Principal Investigator: Lajeunesse, Patrick
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: This research is concerned with the nature and style of glaciation as well as sea level changes and past climatic changes. The broad objective of the research is to obtain a long term paleoclimatic record (before the arrival of the Pre-Dorset people) fro...

Coastal Impacts of Climate Change
Principal Investigator: Solomon, Steve
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1999 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The primary objectives of the project are to map the coastline of the Canadian Beaufort Sea in terms of its sensitivity to coastal erosion and monitor changes in the coastline, and to collect information on the morphology of the coast and the sediments which compose it for use in developing and calibrating predictive models of coastal change. In order to achieve these objectives previously proven ...
