Measuring Carbon Fluxes at Illisarvik with Eddy Covariance
Principal Investigator: Skeeter, Wesley R
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The study will measure carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) fluxes at Illisarvik during the peak of the growing season using a combination of eddy covariance and gas chamber methods. The primary objective will be to determine the magnitude of CO2 and CH4 fluxes and determine whether sequestration offsets emission. Secondary objectives will be to observe the temporal and spatial variability of th...


Climate driven permafrost degradation and its impact on slope failures
Principal Investigator: Beddoe, Ryley
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The objective of this research is to better understand the impact of climate driven permafrost degradation on slope instabilities and landslides in the region. This research will involve detailed investigation of both landslides that have occurred and slopes that are assessed for being at a high risk of failure. Soil samples will be taken by digging test pits within the active layer with hand ...


Relating changes in snowpack water equivalent and structure to migratory behaviour of the Bathurst Caribou herd
Principal Investigator: English, Michael C
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objectives are to work with local residents of Wekweeti to understand how changes in the annual snowpack may impact caribou. The idea is that with increased incursions of warm southern air into the subarctic during winter that snow crusts and ice lenses may be created in the snowpack and as a result increase the energy expenditures of the caribou when foraging for food at the base of the snowp...


Geoscience Tools for Supporting Environmental Risk Assessment of Metal Mining
Principal Investigator: Galloway, Jennifer
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: This project will focus on providing baseline information for areas of high resource potential. In areas of past land use and soon to be developed areas in the Slave Geological Province, the project will generate new spatial and temporal data on changing geochemical, permafrost, ecological and climate data for the past 1000 years. This data will be integrated with Traditional Ecological Knowledge ...


Evaluating impacts of climate change on pre-development geochemical baselines through sediment micro analysis and cross evaluation with paleoclimate in northern environments
Principal Investigator: Miller, Clare B
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objective of this research is to develop a greater understanding of the natural impacts of climate change on the loading, speciation and mobility of elements of concern in the subsurface in order to establish natural background concentrations for metal(loids) in pre-developed northern environments. In a region influenced by both accelerated climate change and wide- spread resource development,...


Review and Impact Analysis: Health Canada Climate Change Health Adaptation Program
Principal Investigator: Abele, Frances
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The overall purpose of the study is to document the range of projects that communities have developed, to explore and document the impact of the projects, and to share this knowledge across the north and with the public. The project is organized in four phases. Phase One involves documentary research and analysis of the Health Canada database of projects. Phase Two involves scoping interviews ...


Adapting to climate change in the context of multiple stressors
Principal Investigator: Pearce, Tristan D
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The proposed research aims to develop an understanding of how people in Paulatuk are experiencing and responding to changing climatic conditions and opportunities to support adaptation. The objectives are to: 1) document and describe current and historical climatic risks and the adaptive strategies employed to deal with them; 2) identify the processes and conditions which have aided or con...


Climate Change and Our Lands in Film: A N'dilo Youth Community Wellness Project
Principal Investigator: MacKenzie, Jessie C
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: Short-Term Objectives 1: To verify the risks of climate change to the health and wellbeing of the community of N'dilo for the purpose of building adaptive capacity while fostering good working relationships between partners to produce a professional documentary. 2: To empower students to recognize their perspectives have a valid place in public dialogues on climate change impacts on First Na...


Examining Community Adaptation Readiness in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: MacDonell, Hillary J.
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: To examine community adaptation readiness in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR), Northwest Territories in order to identify trends in the adaptive readiness of communities in the ISR and provide recommendations to local and regional governments concerning existing gaps or barriers that may be hindering community readiness. The Principal Investigator will conduct informal phone interviews wi...


Our Land is Changing: Climate Change, Food Security and Health in Déline
Principal Investigator: Simmons, Deborah L
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: 1. assess the vulnerability of Déline community members to climate change impacts with a focus on impacts to harvesting practices and country food security now and in the future; 2. identify adaptation strategies currently employed or possible for future application by community members in order to mitigate any adverse impacts to traditional harves...
