Landscapes of the Mackenzie River delta and of the Tuktoyaktuk peninsula as possible analogues for the study of Martian landform development
Principal Investigator: Soare, Richard J
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The research objective is to sample the active layer of the permafrost in areas where patterned ground and thermokarst are present. The data gained will help the researchers to understand possible cold-climate processes in the northern hemisphere of Mars. The researchers will be based in Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk. They intend to visit areas in the vicinity of Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk where patterned...


Late Quaternary hydrological and climatic history of the lower MacKenzie River basin
Principal Investigator: Beierle, Brandon
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: The research team will obtain sediment cores from a series of lakes near Reindeer Station and Inuvik for the purpose of reconstructing the hydrological, climatological and geomorphic history of the lower Mackenzie River basin. The research will require fieldwork between 15 April and 25 April. Research will involve the development of a high-resolution paleoenvironmental record based on lake sedime...


Summer 2001 Hydrology Surveys Within the Sahtu Settlement Region: Biophysical Baseline Studies in Support of the Mackenzie Delta Gas Feasibility Study
Principal Investigator: Sawetsky, Les
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: A detailed data collection program will be undertaken on all major streams in the proposed pipeline corridor. The proposed survey will begin in mid-September and continue until late December, 2001 and will consist of comprehensive studies at selected streams, as discussed below, to define how the streams behave and how they change in time. The focus of the hydrology component is on describing h...


Ecological and Geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the Mackenzie Mountains, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: The main objectives of this study are to: 1. determine the status of permafrost land forms in the study area, and 2. determine the long-term recovery after abandonment of the CANOL No.1 project. Access during the summer is via the Yukon along the Canol Road through Macmillan Pass. Base camp is owned by Old Squaw Lodge at Camp 222. Beyond the base camp mountain bikes and foot will be the means ...


Coastal Impacts of Climate Change
Principal Investigator: Solomon, Steve
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1999 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The primary objectives of the project are to map the coastline of the Canadian Beaufort Sea in terms of its sensitivity to coastal erosion and monitor changes in the coastline, and to collect information on the morphology of the coast and the sediments which compose it for use in developing and calibrating predictive models of coastal change. In order to achieve these objectives previously proven ...


Morphological Study of the Campbell Dolomites Karst, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: McGuinness, Michaella
Licenced Year(s): 1998
Summary: The objective of this study is to document and gain a better understanding of the processes that formed the karst (solution-controlled) landforms of the Campbell Dolomites. The data to be collected includes descriptive data such as slope angles and aspect, composition, size , type and angularity of slope material and detailed surveying of the land. Transportation to and from the base camp will be...


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...


Geomorphologic analysis of the Mackenzie Delta, N.W.T. using spatial image processing.
Principal Investigator: Boyes, Donald M.
Licenced Year(s): 1995 1994 1990
Summary: The collection of the field data is required to calibrate satellite image clasifications and interpretations concerning water body measurements, plant community types, and sedimentation patterns. Field measurements will include measuring ground distances and recording plant characteristics. Nothing in the field area will be destroyed or removed....
