Impacts of wildfire extent and severity on caribou habitat
Principal Investigator: Baltzer, Jennifer L
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objective is to improve the empirical foundations for predictive caribou habitat mapping within the forested areas of the Taiga Plains and Taiga Shield Ecoregions in NWT, roughly south of Great Bear Lake. A network of long-term study plots will be established across a range of fire characteristics and vegetation types, where the research team will measure the rate and direction of forest and c...


Impacts of forest fire on discontinuous permafrost in the south-western Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Lewkowicz, Antoni G
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The research goal is to look at how permafrost is changing following forest fire over a range of environmental conditions, with the purpose of improving how change is modelled in the future. The fires of 2014 in the southwestern Northwest Territories provide an opportunity to examine how discontinuous permafrost responds to disturbances. This work is being carried out in collaboration with an inte...


The effects of fire on diverse aquatic ecosystems of the NWT
Principal Investigator: Tank, Suzanne E
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objective of this study is to determine the effect of fire on water quality within the southern Northwest Territories landscape. The research team will work across the Taiga Plains and Taiga Shield Ecoregions, because it is believed that differences in landscape between these regions will affect the catchment response to fire. The research team will also target catchments with variable permaf...


Bryophytes regeneration in burned peatlands in Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Guêné-Nanchen, Mélina
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objective of this project is to evaluate bryophytes regeneration in Northwest Territories burned peatlands to improve the understanding of the structure of mosses ecosystems. This new knowledge should improve the restoration method of disturbed peatlands where the reintroduction and regeneration mosses are problematic. Several sites will be studied in order to have a range of plant communit...


Planning and Collection of Data on Boreal Wildfire Effects: Studies of broad-scale 2014 Wildfires in NWT, Canada
Principal Investigator: Bourgeau-Chavez, Laura L
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The goal of this project is to identify and collect remote sensing and field data to support the science necessary to investigate the impacts and consequences of the 2014 fires in Northwest Territories, Canada and to better understand the vulnerability of the Carbon-rich boreal peatlands to burning. Field crews will navigate to pre-selected sample locations and collect at each location: 1)site...


Licence #1990
Principal Investigator: Johnson, Edward A.
Licenced Year(s): 1976
Summary: To explore the role of fire in the sub-arctic ecosystem. Starting in 1976 and continuing for two years studies will be related to: 1) a biophysical land classification system, 2) peatland vegetation change, 3) regulation of nutrient losses in the sub-arctic ecosystem, and 4) paleoecology....


Licence #1963
Principal Investigator: Rouse, W.
Licenced Year(s): 1976
Summary: To develop a classification of fire effects on the microclimate of forest and tundra ecosystems....
