Long-term ecological and geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the Mackenzie Mountains, NWT
Principal Investigator: Mamet, Steven D
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to determine: 1) the status of permafrost landforms; 2) long-term recovery after abandonment of the CANOL No. 1 project, including oil spills and gravel pits; 3) Status of treeline. Since 1990, automated microclimate stations powered by solar cells have been operated in the study area. One station is located at each of five permafrost landforms calle...


Slave River Hydro Development
Principal Investigator: Wilbur, Steve
Licenced Year(s): 2008
Summary: This licence is issued for the scientific research application # 926. The goal of this river geomorphology program is to describe the Slave River’s channel landforms and sediment characteristics and assess the sensitivity of these river landforms to potential changes in stream hydrology. Field visits will include a reconnaissance flight via helicopter along the Slave River (from Fort Smith ...


Relations between ground ice and geomorphic setting, Kendall Island Bird Sanctuary, Mackenzie Delta, NWT
Principal Investigator: Morse, Peter D
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006
Summary: This licence was issued for the scientific research licence application number 748. The project objective is to determine how near-surface wedge ice volumes are related to geomorphic setting, which reflects soil physical properties, moisture contents, and process and duration of ice formation. Wedge ice geometry will be measured with a hand-held CRREL drill, permafrost cores extracted, and s...


Arctic Analogues of Utopia and western Elysium Planitia, Mars
Principal Investigator: Soare, Richard J
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: This project’s objective is to take multiple, small .25kg samples of the active layer of permafrost in areas where patterned ground and thermokarst are present. The data gained will help the researchers in their efforts to understand possible cold climate processes in the northern hemisphere of Mars. The researchers intend to visit areas in the vicinity of Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk where polygonal...


Effects of climate change on coastal geomorphology and benthic biotic communities, southwestern Banks Island
Principal Investigator: Edinger, Evan N
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: Climate change is affecting coastlines and coastal communities across Arctic Canada. Communities in the Western Arctic, including Sachs Harbour, have described a variety of effects, including warmer temperatures, reduced sea ice thickness, longer duration of open water in summer, increased wave activity, and new or early arrivals of migratory animals. These effects can have a variety of impacts ...


Integrated Geoscience Studies of the Mackenzie Delta and Nearby Coastal Environments
Principal Investigator: Wright, Fred J
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2004
Summary: This pilot study will address identified gaps in knowledge critical for assessing the impacts of regional oil and gas development in the vicinity of the Mackenzie Delta and Richards Island, with respect to exploration and drilling activities, well-head a...


Coastal Hazards, Relative Sea-level Change, and Climate Impacts on Northern Coasts and Seaways
Principal Investigator: Forbes, Donald L
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The western Canadian Arctic coast is one of the most rapidly changing coastlines in the world and among the most vulnerable to climate change. The causes of this vulnerability have been studied over the past decade. This project involves monitoring coast...


Summer 2001 Hydrology Surveys within the Gwich'in 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 20 streams. All major streams will be included in the survey. The proposed survey will begin in late July and continue until early September 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 descr...

Channel Morphology Studies: Slave River Delta
Principal Investigator: English, Michael C
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1996 1995
Summary: The field crew will live on the delta for approximately 8-9 weeks at a site established by the principal investigator in 1997 on Steamboat Channel. Transportation will be by boat. Three channels will be studied in detail. At each study site the researchers will measure the speed of the flow using an electronic velocity meter, measure the cross sectional profile of the channel with tape and rod ...
