Understanding and predicting the impacts of permafrost thaw on water resources and ecosystems
Principal Investigator: Quinton, William L.
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2001
Summary: Understanding the integrated eco-hydrological behaviour of ecosystems in the context of thawing permafrost is a major challenge. To meet this, the research team will measure the present surface and near-surface water supplies and their inter-annual variability assuming a condition of no permafrost thaw. The team will also develop new knowledge on the eco-hydrology of the major ecosystems (i.e. bog...

Sensitivities of high-latitude lakes to climatic & development disturbances
Principal Investigator: Prowse, Terry D
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005
Summary: Climate change in the Canadian Arctic is expected to have far-reaching impacts on the hydrology and ecology of freshwater ecosystems. These systems are particularly sensitive to climate change because many cryospheric and hydrologic processes respond to relatively small in changes in climate, which in turn affect landscape biogeochemical processes and associated ecological responses. Hence, the pu...

Analaysis of Bathurst Caribou Herd Dynamics Using a Proxy Indicator
Principal Investigator: Zalatan, Rebecca
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003
Summary: Caribou populations fluctuate over long time spans, however, long-term records of population cycles are scarce. The population dynamics of the Bathurst caribou herd across the Northwest Territories will be reconstructed using two proxy indicators of cli...

Northern River Basins Study Traditional Knowledge Documentation Project
Principal Investigator: Bill, Lea
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: The primary focus of this study will be on the older population (65 years and older). Data on traditional knowledge will be collected by interviews, survey questionnaire, and audio and video taping. Information gathered will be used to document the history of traditional ecological knowledge and to demonstrate the value of traditional ecological knowledge in scientific research and in predictions ...
