Developing Remote Sensing Tools for Mapping Linear Disturbances in the Sahtu Region of the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Cole, Sarah E
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The objective is to develop a current and complete development footprint for a designated area of the Central Mackenzie Valley, Northwest Territories (NWT), that includes specified disturbance attributes; captures an estimate of current recovery state; and, provides data to predict disturbance recovery trajectories and project footprint change over time. Anthropogenic disturbance features will ...


The cumulative impacts of rapid environmental change in the northwestern NWT: Investigating the impacts of mega-slump disturbances on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems in the lower Peel watershed, NW
Principal Investigator: Lacelle, Denis
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: This is a multidisciplinary project involving communities, governments and academic researchers. The goals are to: 1) inventory and track broad scale changes in landscape disturbances; 2) determine the impacts of natural and anthropogenic disturbances on the physical and chemical characteristics and ecology of streams and rivers; 3) determine disturbance thresholds relevant to the health of stream...


Evaluating the environmental impacts of permafrost mega-disturbances along the Dempster Highway, NWT
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of this research project is to document the extent of ecological change in impacted stream basins draining the eastern slope of the Richardson Mountains and to determine the mechanisms of slump initiation and stabilization. This study will focus on the Stoney Creek catchment, which runs parallel to the Dempster Highway and empties into the Peel River at Fort McPherson, NT. The catchm...


An Evaluation of Data Collected by Orgiting Satellites to Detect and Monitor Arctic Surfaces
Principal Investigator: Pearce, Cheryl M.
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The Researcher will examine what distinguishes arctic surfaces spatially and spectrally and which surfaces can be detected and identified by sensors on orbiting satellites, and will test the hypothesis that orbiting satellites can be used to detect and monitor thaw slumps, coastal erosion and other physical and biological manifestations of environmental change in the arctic....


Licence #4055
Principal Investigator: Pilon, Jean
Licenced Year(s): 1984
Summary: To carry on with the establishment of a series of permafrost observatories in the NWT to provide a cross section of permafrost conditions, through wihch to conduct long term reserch on permafrost characteristics, permafrost stability, permafrost climate interaction and its response to man induced and natural disturbances, at which to evaluate new tools to determine the properties of permafrost....


Licence #2701
Principal Investigator: French, Hugh
Licenced Year(s): 1981
Summary: To continue terrain disturbance studies, coastal erosion process studies, and to collect samples for further analysis....
