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...


Norman Wells Straw Bales and Reflective Surface Test
Principal Investigator: Graburn, Larry
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: The objective is to test the thermal properties of straw bales and reflective surfaces for use on permafrost slopes along a potential pipeline route in the Mackenzie Valley. These materials might be used in conjunction with or as alternatives to wood ch...


2005 Spring Break-up Watercourse Investigation Program in the Gwich'in Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Graburn, Larry
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: This research is part of an aerial reconnaissance program to study spring breakup at the major watercourse crossings along the proposed pipeline right-of-way from the Deh Cho region in the south to the Inuvialuit Settlement Region in the north. The resea...

2004 Spring Break-up Watercourse Investigation Program - Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Graburn, Larry
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: This research forms part of an aerial reconnaissance program to observe the characteristic break-up patterns at selected watercourse crossings along the proposed pipeline right-of-way from the Deh Cho region in the south to the Inuvialuit Settlement Regi...


Permafrost response to recent climate warming in the Mackenzie Delta and Yukon Coast.
Principal Investigator: Wolfe, Stephen A
Licenced Year(s): 1999
Summary: The objective of the present study is to assess the impact of recent warming, including the warm summer of 1998, on active layer thicknesses and slope stability in the Mackenzie Delta, N.W.T. and Yukon North Slope. The main mode of transportation will be by helicopter (206L) and by boat to transport people. The helicopter will be based out of Inuvik with a fuel cache at Tuktoyaktuk. The helicop...
