Contemporary Dynamics of Forest-Tundra Ecotones in Central NWT
Principal Investigator: Danby, Ryan K
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: Objectives of this research project are to: 1) analyze Landsat satellite images to understand regional vegetation change over the past 30 years; 2) determine the timing of tree establishment as well as the climate influence on tree growth across the forest tundra transition zone over the past 300 years; and, 3. measure spruce seedling growth across the forest-tundra ecotone in relation to varia...


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...
