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...

The project will focus on understanding, analyzing and evaluating the reactions of the northern boreal forest ecosystems in the Great Slave Lake region due to man made stress of mining, settlement and connecting activities. The project will try to develop some general conclusions, statements and model systems. The research team (2 persons) will come from Europe to Yellowknife by plane. The base wi...

The research team consisting of forest ecologists, will go to Wood Buffalo National Park by air. A rental vehicle will also be used in the field. Most activities will consist of re-measuring jack pine stands that were examined in 1992. Various kinds of measuring tapes and a pole are used to obtain data. A few stands will be studies by taking stem samples for examination of tree rings and tree g...
