Winter Flow Regime and Icing Dynamics of Tundra Streams near the Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway
Principal Investigator: Ensom, Timothy P
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The overarching objective of this study is to integrate light detection and ranging (LiDAR), passive spectral, and tree ecophysiological data to link biophysical structure to ecological function in the Forest Tundra Ecotone. In so doing, the research team will be able to remotely assess the vulnerability and resilience of the forest tundra ecotone (FTE) to environmental change. The field work w...


Quantifying carbon fluxes and budgets of boreal forest-tundra landscapes under the influence of rapidly changing permafrost regimes
Principal Investigator: Sonnentag, Oliver
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: 1) determine if the net effect of permafrost thawing-induced biophysical and biogeochemical feedbacks to the climate system; 2) determine how these two types of feedback differ between the discontinuous and continuous permafrost zones; 3) determine if the reported decrease (increase) in net CO2 (CH4) exchange based on plot- (<1m2) and ecosystem-scale...


Soil Carbon in the Mackenzie Delta Region
Principal Investigator: Phillips, Marcus R
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The goal of this research is to understand how landscape processes influence the quantity and quality of soil carbon in the Mackenzie Delta Region. Particular attention will be paid to the depth distribution of soil carbon and how it is affected by differences in vegetation and soil forming processes. Key environmental differences that will be examined include forest vs. tundra and delta vs. uplan...


An Exploratory Evaluation of the Effect of the Climate Change During the Past Two Centuries on Structure of Jack Pine Forests.
Principal Investigator: Osawa, Akira
Licenced Year(s): 1999
Summary: The main objective of the proposed research is to reconstruct the structure of monospecific forests of different ages, and to explore whether or not the recent climate change has affected the structure of the forests in northern Canada. Pure stands of Jack pine or aspen will be studied in Wood Buffalo National Park. The intent is to determine the effect of the so-called Climate Change on those f...
