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...

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 ...

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 ...
