Mapping and Modeling Carbon Flux in Northern Canada Related to Land Use Change
Principal Investigator: Chen, Wenjun
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The research team is working to become familiar with the impact of human disturbances on vegetation in northern Canada for their carbon studies. The objective of this study is to collect vegetation and biophysical data for use as verification of ground cover type and disturbance for use in satellite imagery classification and biomass and soil sampling for carbon modeling along the Ingraham Trail....


Spatial variability of active-layer thickness and surface characteristics
Principal Investigator: Nguyen, Thai-Nguyen
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: The objective of this research is to determine the spatial correlation between surface properties and active-layer thickness. Six sites have been established across the treeline, between Inuvik and Swimming Point. At each site, shallow temperature cables are installed in the active-layer and near-surface permafrost and air temperatures are monitored by data logger. During this project, the res...


Snow accumulation/runoff in high latitude permafrost basins
Principal Investigator: Marsh, Philip
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1990
Summary: The primary objective of this project is to improve understanding of the changes in water and energy in northern regions, and to develop improved computer models of these processes. The Trail Valley Creek, Hans Creek, and Zed Creek sites will be accessed...


2004 Summer Reconnaissance Program in the Deh Cho Region
Principal Investigator: Graburn, Larry
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003
Summary: The objective of this program is to carry out aerial reconnaissance and preliminary site investigations, topographical aerial mapping, and surface reconnaissance in the general vicinity of the proposed route for the Mackenzie Gas Project. Information fro...


2003 Terrestrial Studies in the Sahtu Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Povey, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: These terrestrial studies will include vegetation and soils investigations. The primary goals are to classify vegetation, landforms, soils and permafrost in the project area, to identify locations of rare plants and uncommon plant communities, and to co...


2002 Terrestrial Studies in the Sahtu Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Povey, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: The vegetation component of the 2002 baseline studies will focus on completion of the vegetation typing surveys. Initially, a reconnaissance flight will be required over Sahtu Private Lands along the study corridor. This flight will be used to identify...


2002 Terrestrial Studies in the Gwich'in Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Povey, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: The proposed research program involves terrestrial studies in the Gwich'in Settlement Area to be conducted during 2002. Initial Vegetation investigations were conducted in summer 2001 to classify vegetation along the study corridor. This classification...


2002 Terrestrial Studies in the Inuvialuit Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Povey, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: The proposed research program involves terrestrial studies in the Inuvialuit Settlement Area to be conducted during 2002. Initial vegetation investigations were conducted in summer 2001 to classify vegetation along the study corridor. This classificatio...


2002 Terrestrial Studies in the Deh Cho Region
Principal Investigator: Povey, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003 2002
Summary: The vegetation component of the 2002 baseline studies will focus on completion of the vegetation typing surveys. Initially, a reconnaissance flight will be required along the study corridor. This flight will be used to identify sites for detailed sampling. Sites will be selected to represent the major ecological land units. Where possible, sample sites will be grouped to reduce helicopter time....
