Active Layer Monitoring Network in the Mackenzie Valley
Principal Investigator: Nixon, Frederick M
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The active layer is the earth overlying permafrost that thaws from the surface and re-freezes each year, and it responds to climate change. Active layer thickness influences vegetation and soil conditions, potentially influencing hunting, forestry, etc. and it’s, thickness, texture and moisture content affects foundations. Changes in the active layer and thaw depth can contribute to slope instabil...


Surficial Geology of Mackenzie Corridor
Principal Investigator: Duk-Rodkin, Alejandra ADR
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: This project aims to obtain a better understanding of the sensitivity of slopes to disturbance from development, especially in the context of progressive climate warming. It will also identify baseline levels for natural and anthropogenic contaminants,...


Surficial Geology Mapping Fort Norman (96C), Blackwater Lake (96B), Mahoney Lake (96F)
Principal Investigator: Duk-Rodkin, Alejandra ADR
Licenced Year(s): 2003
Summary: This project aims to obtain a better understanding of the sensitivity of slopes to disturbance from development, especially in the context of progressive climate warming. It will also identify baseline levels for natural and anthropogenic contaminants,...


Coastal hazards, relative sea-level change, and climate impacts on northern coasts and seaways
Principal Investigator: Forbes, Donald L
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: This project involves monitoring changes in the coast and refining estimates of land uplift or subsidence using passive geodetic and survey measurements at sites throughout the western Arctic, supported by existing data on coastal submergence and emergence from geological observations. Long-term coastal change under existing climate and sea-level trends will be determined at reference sites of th...


Mass movements in the Aklavik Mountains and Water Quality in the Richardson Mountain Catchments
Principal Investigator: LAURIOL, Bernard
Licenced Year(s): 1998
Summary: The aim of the study of mass movements in the Richardson Mountains is to understand the processes of erosion related to climate changes. The site to be studied is located south of Little Fish Creek. The landscape looks like bench forms which are named Cryoplanation terrasses. This site was visited last year for 2-3 hours. Their formation are not really understood but we suspect that the melting of...


Coastal Impacts of Climate Change
Principal Investigator: Forbes, Donald L
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1999 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The Coastal Impacts project on the Beaufort Sea coast has two complementary objectives: 1. To improve our understanding of coastal processes; 2. To develop methods for prediction of coastal impacts of changing climate. Field work will be performed in the modern Mackenzie Delta, along the Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula coast, and at North Head if time permits. Collaborative field work in Ivva...


Coastal evolution and sedimentary processes in the Mackenzie Delta and Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula region
Principal Investigator: Hill, Philip R.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The researchers will examine the rate of coastal change in the outer Mackenzie Delta region in order to understand the factors contributing to present delta formation and coastal erosion, and to understand how global climate warming may affect coastal change. Surveys on beaches, sand bars and delta lakes will be conducted....
