Landscapes of the Mackenzie River delta and of the Tuktoyaktuk peninsula as possible analogues for the study of Martian landform development
Principal Investigator: Soare, Richard J
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The research objective is to sample the active layer of the permafrost in areas where patterned ground and thermokarst are present. The data gained will help the researchers to understand possible cold-climate processes in the northern hemisphere of Mars. The researchers will be based in Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk. They intend to visit areas in the vicinity of Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk where patterned...


Environment Adaptation in Arctic Aquatic Organisms
Principal Investigator: Ballantyne, James
Licenced Year(s): 2000
Summary: This project will examine the adaptation of freshwater fish to low temperatures. The data to be collected includes blood and tissue samples from fish. These samples will be analyzed for enzymes, fats and proteins. These results will be compared to samples taken from other locations (e.g. Nunavut, southern waters). This work will provide important information relating the sensitivity of Arctic ...


Distribution of Dark-Celled Fungal Root Endophytes Along an Arctic to Boreal Latitudinal Gradient
Principal Investigator: Piercey, Melissa
Licenced Year(s): 2000
Summary: Roots of plants inhabiting cold-stressed environments are often colonized by vegetatively reproducing fungi. The researcher will examine the genetic variation within and among populations of Phialocephala fortinii P. along a latitudinal gradient encompassing the boreal, subarctic and arctic zones in Northern Canada. The researcher will travel from Yellowknife to 3 study sites surrounding Great ...
